Reflecting the many changes in the technology of the oil and gas industry since its last publication in 1984, this new edition of Modern Petroleum Technology is the most authoritative and thoroughly up-to-date review of technical expertise employed across the whole of the international oil and gas industry. Written by leading international experts from industry and academia, all entries have been updated and many new entries have been added for this 6th edition. The work is divided into two volumes: Upstream and Downstream. Upstream examines the different stages of the exploration and production processes involved in the location and extraction of raw materials, including the latest applications employed in modern seismic technology and the production of heavy oils. Downstream covers the process of refining the raw material, and producing and supplying the end product, from refineries to service stations. Both volumes deal with all aspects of their area of petroleum technology, from the innovations in technology to the environmental issues surrounding its practical application. Modern Petroleum Technology considers the current challenges and opportunities presented by new technology, enabling everyone in the industry, from the busy chief executive to the petroleum engineer, to stay in touch with developments outside their own area of expertise. Modern Petroleum Technology's concise and comprehensive overview will also be of special value to analysts, strategists, lecturers and students, oil and gas consultants, and legal and financial service providers.
