"Despite the importance of Geology in the exploitation of hydrocarbon resources, there are remarkably few texts that explain in any detail exactly how a geoscientist goes about doing this job...The publication now of Petroleum Geoscience is therefore extremely welcome. Its coverage is both wide and deep, and it is right up-to-date with advances in technology and methods of practice...The authors bring to this book a wealth of personal practical experience and understanding gained from their own time working in oil companies and on research. As well as covering the theory, they make excellent use of examples to bring home the key points. Published examples are supplemented by extensive amounts of previously unpublished material from the oil company BP and with their own insights from involvement in many of these projects. Clearly illustrated is how academic enthusiasm has to be tempered by economic realism." Colin North, University of Aberdeen, Teaching Earth Sciences, 2003
