With political turmoil in the Middle East contributing to price volatility and production problems, many experts have questioned if this critical region can continue to supply petroleum for the global economy. Former Saudi Aramco chief petroleum engineer Lou Powers offers insights into the major oilfields of Saudi Arabia, and whether these historic reserves can continue to deliver the petroleum that drives the global economy. Written from the perspective of Powers' more than 50 years in the global petroleum industry, this book gives readers a window into a world few understand, yet depend upon for their everyday needs.
