Oil & Gas Production in Nontechnical Language Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This nontechnical treatment is a great introduction to oil and gas production for anyone from beginning petroleum engineering and geology students to accountants, salespersons, and other professionals interested in the industry. Co-authored by Martin Raymond, a veteran production manager, and William Leffler, one of the top petroleum nontechnical writers, it is an easy-to-read reference for those who deal with petroleum industry personnel and production issues in their jobs, but need a quick overview of the technical and business issues. Complete with helpful charts and diagrams, this book covers everything from production equipment and processes to theory, business operations, and strategies.

Book News Annotation:

In this sourcebook intended for those just starting with the industry or beginning studies for it, readers will not only find what amounts to glossary definitions but also their context and generally accepted use in the field and lab. The authors, whose combined service in the industry totals over 75 years, cover the history of production, the necessary geology, the means of finding oil, the legalities of who owns what, drilling, logging, testing, completing a drill, hydrocarbon activity, production, field processing, remedial operations and workovers, the roles of people in the process, and strategies. Their illustrations are particularly helpful, and the index works very well to find definitions of individual terms.
