Joseph Hilyard's timely new book provides a broad perspective on the oil and gas industry, with primary attention to the United States. It takes the reader on a tour of the operations used to find and evaluate resources, and then to produce, store and deliver oil and gas.

The book's main focus is primarily on the equipment and processes used in exploring new resources; evaluating promising formations; drilling wells; managing oil and gas production; converting oil and gas into products; and transporting oil and gas. Separate chapters address the evolution and current structure of the petroleum industry; oil and gas trading; and challenges likely to face the oil and gas industry in coming years.

Three appendices define key industry terminology; suggest further reading on selected topics; and identify organizations that can provide more information.

Review:

"Truly helpful contributions are rare in the already-crowded world of energy analysis. Yet in [this] highly accessible new release... engineer and journalist Hilyard manages to make a worthwhile impact... [He] elegantly synthesizes the essentials into a detailed 'nontechnical' primer... His writing is free of jargon and... will be readable by both the moderately energy-literate and advanced readers...[He] lucidly explicates the complexities underlying this most important of all sectors."
 
- Joel Krupa, University of Toronto, Canada
   in Energy Policy (Elsevier), V. 57, 2013 p.644
