In this sourcebook intended for those just starting with the industry or beginning studies for it, readers will not only find what amounts to glossary definitions but also their context and generally accepted use in the field and lab. The authors, whose combined service in the industry totals over 75 years, cover the history of production, the necessary geology, the means of finding oil, the legalities of who owns what, drilling, logging, testing, completing a drill, hydrocarbon activity, production, field processing, remedial operations and workovers, the roles of people in the process, and strategies. Their illustrations are particularly helpful, and the index works very well to find definitions of individual terms. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
