About this Textbook

Petroleum geoscience comprises those geoscientific disciplines which are of greatest significance for the exploration and recovery of oil and gas. These include petroleum geology, of which sedimentary geology is the main foundation along with the contextual and modifying principles of regional, tectonic and structural geology. Additionally, biostratigraphy and micropalaeontology, organic geochemistry, and geophysical exploration and production techniques are all important tools for petroleum geoscientists in the 21st century. This comprehensive textbook present an overview of petroleum geoscience for geologists destined for the petroleum industry. It should also be useful for students interested in environmental geology, engineering geology and other aspects of sedimentary geology

Reviews

From the reviews:

"However, there should be no doubt that the present book covers the basic needs for all students in petroleum geoscience. Moreover, because of its coverage of basic principles it should also be a valid reference for professionals who want to update themselves on subjects in which they do not have special expertise." (H. Carstens, GeoExpro Issue 5, Vol 8 2011, pp 88)

“The hallmark achievements of this introductory work in petroleum geology exploration are its balance of important subject coverage, clarity of text and illustrations, and selectivity of references. … Illustrations throughout the text, most in color, are outstanding. … it is a valuable primer for tackling much more specialized, in-depth information and issues that confront graduate students and professionals. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners.” (T. L. T. Grose, Choice, Vol. 48 (11), July, 2011)
