The petroleum industry is unique: it is an industry without which modern civilization would collapse. Despite the advances in alternative energy, petroleum's role is still central. Petroleum still drives economics, geopolitics, and sometimes war. The history of petroleum is, to some measure, the history of the modern world. This book represents a concise but complete one-volume reference on the history of the petroleum industry from pre-modern times to the present day, covering all aspects of business, technology, and geopolitics. The book also presents an analysis of the future of petroleum, and a highly useful set of statistical graphs. Anyone interested in the history, status, and outlook for petroleum will find this book a uniquely valuable first place to look. This new second edition incorporates all the revolutionary changes in the petroleum landscape since the first edition was published, including the boom in extraction of oil and gas from shale formations using techniques such as fracking and horizontal drilling.
This second edition of Historical Dictionary of the Petroleum Industry contains a chronology, an introduction, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 500 cross-referenced entries on companies, people, events, technologies, countries, provinces, cities, and regions related to the history of the world's petroleum industry. This book is an excellent resource for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about the petroleum industry.
[This second edition] takes a wide-ranging, multidisciplinary approach, embracing technical, economic, and geopolitical and historical aspects. This edition contains over 500 well-written entries, which have many cross-references and cover prominent individuals in the industry, political leaders, companies, events, countries, regions, types of oil, major pipelines, and technologies. New areas of emphasis include horizontal drilling, tight gas, shale oil, and hydraulic fracturing (fracking); the most in-depth coverage is given to exploration and production. A thorough chronology ranges from ancient times to 2017. The extensive bibliography is divided by content and also contains an excellent introductory essay on the literature of the petroleum industry. Thirteen appendixes give statistics and other figures, and there is a handy list of abbreviations and acronyms used throughout the volume, as well as helpful graphs. This volume should be found in university collections supporting energy engineering, political science, or business programs. Highly recommended. (CHOICE)
