Description

The accelerated growth of the world population creates an increase of energy needs. This requires new paths for oil supply to its users, which can be potential hazardous sources for individuals and the environment.

Risk Analysis for Prevention of Hazardous Situations in Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering explains the potential hazards of petroleum engineering activities, emphasizing risk assessments in drilling, completion, and production, and the gathering, transportation, and storage of hydrocarbons. Designed to aid in decision-making processes for environmental protection, this book is a useful guide for engineers, technicians, and other professionals in the petroleum industry interested in risk analysis for preventing hazardous situations.

Author(s)/Editor(s) Biography

Davorin Matanovic is a full time professor at the Faculty of Mining, Geology and Petroleum Engineering, University of Zagreb in Croatia. He holds the Master Engineer (ME) degree in Petroleum Engineering, Master of Science (MS) in Chemical Engineering and PhD in Petroleum Engineering. His current major study and specialization is well completion and workover, but he also teaches drilling technique, well stimulation and technical risk analysis as well. As an ex oilfield engineer working for INA-Naftaplin, Comp. he gained practical experience as a drilling engineer, also earning the state engineer certificate. Apart from the oilfield and teaching experience, he is an editor in chief of The Mining, Geology, and Petroleum Engineering Bulletin, member of the Croatian Academy of Engineering, etc. He is also the author of four books and numerous papers.
Nediljka Gaurina-Medjimurec is a Professor in the Faculty of Mining, Geology and Petroleum Engineering at University of Zagreb specializing in drilling, drilling fluids, wellbore stability, cementing, and environmental protection in petroleum engineering. She holds a BS and PhD degree in petroleum engineering from the University of Zagreb, and MS degree in petroleum engineering from the University of Belgrade. She is a certified petroleum engineer. She has published over hundred technical and scientific papers. She was head of Petroleum Engineering Department from 1996-1998, and Vice Dean for Finance and Administration of Faculty of Mining, Geology and Petroleum Engineering from 2005-2009. She is a member of Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), Croatian Academy of Engineering (HATZ), and Croatian Academy of Science and Art (HAZU) - Scientific Council for Oil.
Katarina Simon is a Professor at the Petroleum Engineering Department of the Faculty of Mining, Geology and Petroleum Engineering University of Zagreb. She has held the PhD title from the same University since 2000. Her area of interests are Oil and Gas Processing and Transportation as well as Directional Drilling. She was the Head of PE Department from 2005 to 2007. Currently she is a main researcher and a collaborator on a few scientific and professional projects in petroleum engineering.
