9780198548560: Introduction to Petroleum Exploration for Non-Geologists

This unique text offers a friendly, fascinating introduction to the world of petroleum exploration for readers with little or no technical background on the subject. Refreshingly clear and jargon-free, the book covers a wide range of topics, including the underlying rationale for exploration, essential basic geological and geophysical exploration techniques, drilling and logging wells, reserves, and an outline of reservoir geology. A helpful case history of exploration in the North Sea is presented to illustrate how the numerous processes work together, and a lengthy glossary of technical terms serves as an invaluable aid for those approaching the subject for the first time. Perfect for all those interested in petroleum exploration, the book will be especially welcomed by students and by non-geologists working in industry, such as draughtspeople, engineers, accountants, and lawyers.

Review:


"I was hooked from page one. ... At the end of the book you will feel that you have been on the course and that all you now need is the T-shirt! I commend the book highly, not only to anyone in the field or to those associated with the industry, but to everyone who wants to understand the world about them just that little bit more." -- Geoscientist


"A short, easy-to-read book that explains how petroleum occurs and how geologists explore for it. . . .A good overview of petroleum exploration and, I might add, a good reference."--Geomedia

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1995. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Over 1000 people have attended the three-day course on which this book is based since it was instituted in 1981 by JAPEC (Joint Association for Petroleum Exploration Courses). Key topics covered in this book are: the underlaying rationale for exploration; essential basic geological and geophysical exploration techniques; drilling and logging wells; an outline of reservoir geology and what constitutes reserves; and all of these topics are brought together in a case-history overview of exploration in the North Sea. The book is fully self-explanatory, needs no prior knowledge of geology or of exploration techniques, and as much as possible avoids the use of technical jargon. There is, however, a lengthy glossary of technical terms that can be used as a reference. The appeal of the book extends far beyond the audience originally envisaged for the JAPEC course. Anyone interested in finding out what petroleum exploration is all about will enjoy this volume. Bookseller Inventory # AOP9780198548560
