Oil and Gas Production Handbook
This handbook has been compiled to give readers who are interested in oil and gas production industry an overview of the main processes and equipment. When the authors started to search for a suitable introduction to be used for new engineers, they discovered that much of this equipment is described in standards, equipment manuals and project documentation. But little material was found to quickly give the reader an overview of the entire upstream area, while still preserving enough detail to let the engineer get an appreciation of the main characteristics and design issues.

Metal Mining and the Environment
Society’s requirement for metals establishes a strong link between our standard of living, the Earth, and science. Decisions about the development and use of Earth’s metallic resources affect the economic, social, and environmental fabric of societies worldwide. The authors' challenge is to balance these important attributes.
Using vivid illustrations and nontechnical language, the authors offer an Earth-science perspective on metal mining and the environment. The colorful 18” x 24” poster and student activity included in the back of the book make Mining Metal and the Environment an especially valuable educational resource.
