Drilling engineers require estimates of the fluid pressures that they are likely to encounter in any given well to anticipate mud weights required to maintain optimal drilling rates and safety. In addition, the locations of anomalous pore-pressure regions are of interest in exploration because they often correlate with highly productive “sweet” spots in otherwise tight gas sands.

Microbial Exploration Technology (MET), also called microbial enhanced oil recovery (MEOR), is a method of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) that identifies microorganism levels in soil near reservoir surfaces to estimate hydrocarbon levels. This method is largely based on the premise that the more microorganisms present, the more hydrocarbons are present for those microorganisms to feed on.

Revision as of 09:17, 10 August 2021


How to Get Started
Search box: Use the search box at upper right to find content of interest.
  • The Petroleum Engineering Handbook page and SPE's Taxonomy page are great places to look for specific content in an area of interest. These options are always available on the navigation on the left side of the screen.

Glossary: Use the Glossary to find terms and definitions. Glossary If searching for a specific term please type in "Glossary:" before the desired term in the search box.

  • To add a glossary term or update an existing one, please visit the Glossary category page for instructions on how to submit your term or changes.

Help: Use the Help to locate guides, videos, and slideshows to explain editing.

Featured editing question

What features are on the edit toolbar?

  • Opening the visual editor
  • Undo/redo
  • Formatting paragraphs and headings
  • Text formatting

How can I contribute to PetroWiki?

PetroWiki is a living document and therefore the content should be enhanced to include newer technologies and current information.

Share your knowledge with others and help update PetroWiki at the same time! You can't "break" the wiki.

Follow these basic steps to get started:

  • Log in
  • Search for the topic of your choice
  • Open the topic page, if there is not a relevant topic page you will be asked if you want to start a new page
  • Make changes and/or add content
  • Save

Suggested additions:

  • New and emerging concepts
  • Utilize your expertise to review, update, and enhance the quality of existing content
  • Adding links to good papers in OnePetro and elsewhere is a great way to enrich existing content pages.
  • Creation of pages about specific fields are welcome. Knowing the basics of the reservoir and how the field was developed over time can provide valuable information to others. (See Prudhoe_Bay_field and Kuparuk River field

Things to know:

Edit Toolbar:

  • The visual editor toolbar supports text formatting, such as bold, italics, and underlining.
  • Documents can also include page formatting options, such as numbered/bullet lists, and indentations.
  • See also the basic wikitext editor WikiText toolbar.

Adding OnePetro Papers:

  • Adding OnePetro articles to PetroWiki will assist industry professionals in finding relevant answers to technical questions.
  • Read more...


Content categorization - SPE has finalized a technical taxonomy that is being used in PetroWiki, OnePetro, and other SPE content.

What is PetroWiki?

PetroWiki was created from the seven volume Petroleum Engineering Handbook (PEH) published by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE). PetroWiki preserves the PEH content in unaltered form (page names that start with PEH:), while allowing SPE's membership to update and expand content from the published version. Pages that do not have PEH: at the beginning may have started with content from the PEH, but have been modified over time by contributors to the wiki. Disclaimer

Unlike some other online wikis, PetroWiki content is copyright SPE. For information about using content from PetroWiki, see PetroWiki:Permissions.
