Book Description:

An Authoritative Reference Work from Elsevier

About the Author:

Richard Selley is a Senior Research Fellow and Emeritus Professor of Petroleum Geology at Imperial College, London, where he has spent most of his career apart from several gap years employed by oil companies in the North Sea and abroad. He has over 50 years of experience in the teaching, research and practical application of geoscience to petroleum exploration. Richard’s early research in the application of sedimentology in general and geophysical well logs in particular, to petroleum exploration has been rendered redundant by advances in seismic imaging. It is 30 years since he applied the Appalachian shale gas paradigm to Euroland and the UK. This research was ignored until recently. He has now achieved notoriety (outside the industry) as an advocate of hydraulic fracturing for shale gas and oil extraction.

Richard has received various national and international honours, included the Silver Medal of the Geological Society of London, awarded for excellence in petroleum geoscience, and Honorary Membership of the Petroleum Exploration Society of GB. Richard’s hobby is to research the impact of geology and climate change on viticulture; demanding research that requires considerable collateral conviviality.
