Book Preface

To petroleum engineers and geologists, the basics of oil and gas production are virtually second nature. That’s what they do. But what about the rest of theworld-the mud salesman, the information technology specialist, the environmentalist, the accountant, the facilities engineer, the seismic crew member, the… well, you get it. All these people have to deal with petroleum engineers and geologists, providing the goods and services. How do they get a grip on the challenges of extracting oil and gas from the ground? How do they relate announcements about new technologies and innovations to what their clients are currently doing?
And how does another group, those abruptly thrust into the industry-a landowner, a royalty-interest owner, or an incrediblylucky heir-eatch up? We wrote this book with all those people in mind. Some are engineering graduates. Many havc only a vaguely related technical education. Others don’t even have that arrow in their quivers. So this book attempts to reduce the technology to understandable prose. Oh, there are one or two sections that have formulas, but that’s all. There may be complicated charts and diagrams, but everyone has an easy explanation-even though we acknowledge that production is a complicated business.

The meat of this book is in the second two-thirds. But at any proper meal, an appetizer, soup, and salad should come first. That’s why the first third has the “upstream part” of the upstream-some geology and geophysics, some legal stuff, and drilling. All the petroleum engineers and the geologists had to learn it before they eould function. Without it, the business of production would remain a mystery.
