Oil & Gas Production in Nontechnical Language, 2nd Edition

$102.00

by Martin S. Raymond & William L. Leffler

This nontechnical treatment of oil and gas production 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.

  • Reservoir characteristics and behavior
  • Expanded coverage of drilling and hydraulic fracturing 
  • Conventional and not-so-conventional (oil sands plus shale oil and gas) producing operations
  • Production problems and solutions
  • The different types of companies and jobs in the oil patch and how they interact
