"A great start..." - by Emmster (Hampshire, England)
This is a really really good book if you're looking to understand a bit more about the general layout of a refinery, its units, their chemistry and some of the more gruesome picky details about what's in your petrol/gas tank.

You can search the table of contents and I recommend you do. You'll see that this is a technical book for non-technical people. I've a degree in engineering, some A level chemistry and 14 years working in and around refineries (in IT [plant computing] admittedly). On a straight-through read I found the amount of information overwhelming, and some material caused mothballed parts of my brain to fire-up again. I'll need to read it another two or three times to really extract the value.

If you're looking for a book on refinery planning, scheduling, oil accounting, economics - forget it. This book is about the technical side of turning crude into saleable products ... full review

"A must have for Petroleum Engineer" - by Piyatad
This is a very good book. It covers most of Petroleum Engineering with good enough details to easily understand. The various aspects covered are, for examples, Drilling, PVT properties, Rock Properties, flow in porous media, reservoir performance, IOR, etc. It is one of the first book my professor recommended, when I studied Master degree in Petroleum Engineering, and I used it extensively through out the course.

"Colourful, funny, and a damn fine page turner." - by Malcolm Erskine
Stone’s adventures smack of real life experience and are told in an easy-to-read conversational style. What a character. And what a ride. You have to admire the guy. Reminds me of the opening narrative to that TV show in the seventies, Alias Smith & Jones. “The two most successful outlaws in the history of the West. And in all the banks and trains they robbed, they never shot anyone.” (For me, the worst thing Stone does in his autobiography is to shoot that old goat. He does explain how he'd been having a really, really bad day. Yeah, sure, but not as bad as the goat’s!) Living, as we do, in an Age of Puritanism and hypocrisy, I found Chasing Black Gold immensely enjoyable. And informative in an eye-opening jaw-dropping way.

"Oil guide for everyone, not just dummies" - by Serene Gardiner (UAE)
If you are just starting out, this is by far the best starter pack. Easy to read and follow. It covers every facet of the industry and hence, brilliant for those who want to impress. I wish I had this when I started.

If you are like me and I have been in the oil industry for a while, you will find this an invaluable reference guide. Whenever my brain fails me, I'd flip through for answer as it is well laid out and covers nearly everything. Not bogged down by excessive formula and chemistry, but just enough details to jog my brain back into action.

"Pragmatic and practical" - by A. W. Jefferies (The Netherlands)
If there is such a thing as a great analytical reservoir engineering read this is it. Dake makes a complex subject understandable, practical and at times humorous. If you are actually going to some PE work then this is one to have in the filing cabinet.

"Giving a clear view of oil's past, present and future" - by Andrew Dalby (oxford)
This is the second of the books from the polity series that I have read. The first was about food. Here the authors describe the rise of the oil industry as one of the most important political and economic forces in the modern world. They show how it has moved from domination by international oil corporations to developing world national oil companies and how the creations of lobbying groups such as Opec have sought to regulate the price of oil.

More recently the price of oil has been volatile because of the increased influence of the financial markets and the speculators. This had resulted in oil becoming an asset of last resort (like gold) to avoid devaluation of the dollar and the weaknesses of the first world economies. The book also covers the wider social and economic consequences and the curse of oil to local populations, as well as the failure ... full review

"Superb.Succinct." - by GMW (Wales)
A fantastic book. Easy to read - although with some technical aspects I am unfamiliar with (not being in the Oil Industry). Key aspects I needed to understand, I found, digested, and am happy with the investment! Well done to the authors!
