The purpose of this manuscript is to provide the reader with the basic principles of flow in porous media and their association to hydrocarbon production from underground formations. The intended audience is undergraduate and graduate students in petroleum engineering and associated disciplines, as well as practicing engineers and geoscientists in the oil and gas industry.
The material draws from the experiences of the authors in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin and, wherever possible, draws from unconventional resources.
