Product Description This updated second edition of Oil & Gas Production in Nontechnical Language is an excellent introduction for anyone from petroleum engineers and geologists new to their careers to financial, marketing, legal, and other professionals and their staffs interested in the industry. E&P service company personnel will find it particularly beneficial in understanding the roles played by their clients. Not only does it cover production fundamentals, but it backs up to give the necessary upstream background―geology, origins of oil and gas, and ownership and land rights―as well as surface operations and even production company strategy development. Review I have always thought vital the need in organizations for mutual understanding among groups with different functions. The better the participants understand the professional contributions of their associates, the more likely the success of every endeavor. To that end, this book covers an overlook of the expertise needed in all phases of the upstream with a heavy emphasis on what makes producing operations tick. --Joe B.
