Dictionary of Oil and Gas Production
By

Rating
This dictionary provides a synthesis of information currently available but only in a diverse array of sources. Through judicious choice and careful scrutiny, the author has gathered together a very handy ready-reference in the same style as his companion volumes, Dictionary of Energy and Fuels and Dictionary of Fire Protection Engineering. Although the material covered is diverse, particular entries are focused and linked with each other so as to provide a good degree of comprehensiveness. For example, there is much information on well engineering including example calculations, and this is linked to wells at particular oil fields. There is also much on offshore production and again principles are linked, often by calculation, with particular offshore production platforms. The North Sea features, but not exclusively, and the vast bulk of the information presented is relevant to all locations. Commercial products, including those for oil well maintenance, are featured and information on the web from suppliers is expanded by drawing on the physics and chemistry of how such products work.

Reviews

'...provides a synthesis of currently available information from a wide range of sources. ...contains much close engineering reasoning and some related calculations. The book will be useful to oil and gas industry professionals, students undertaking oil and gas courses, as well as consulting engineers and policymakers'. Petroleum Review '...has maintained the high quality achieved in the previous dictionaries... ...a wealth of information on topics of great diversity ranging from calculations regarding oil-well engineering to data about a whole host of oil fields and some details of commercial products... The range of information is indeed wide and in some instances is quite intriguing. I consider this book to be a little gold mine of information and at a little less than GBP20 it could be considered a steal'. Fuel
