Offshore Oil and Gas PEOPLE: Overview of Offshore Drilling Operations
Offshore Oil and Gas PEOPLE: Overview of Offshore
Working on an offshore drilling rig is something most people will never get to experience in their lifetime. It is like no other workplace in the world and only those who have worked offshore can appreciate the diversity of people, cultures and roles that are represented in their remote “office”. Offshore Oil and Gas PEOPLE is an overview of what it’s like to work on an oil rig, and the role everyone plays in getting the job done safely and on time. The saying “Time is Money” is the mantra that everyone works to offshore with wells costing up to one hundred million dollars to drill. With such big money at stake it’s easy to see why it is such a high-pressured environment to work in. This handy guide can serve as a pre-deployment induction manual for all new starters in the industry so they know what to expect when they get to a rig for the first time.

The Economics of Oil: A Primer Including Geology, Energy, Economics, Politics (SpringerBriefs in Energy)
The Economics of Oil: A Primer Including Geology,
This book examines the ways that oil economics will impact the rapidly changing global economy, and the oil industry itself, over the coming decades. The predictions of peak oil were both right and wrong. Oil production has been constrained in relation to demand for the past decade, with a resulting four-fold increase in the oil price slowing the entire global economy. High oil prices have encouraged a small increase in oil production, and mostly from the short-lived “fracking revolution,” but enough to be able to claim that “peak oil” was a false prophecy. The high oil price has also engendered massive exploration investments, but remaining hydrocarbon stocks generally offer poor returns in energy (the energy return on investment or EROI) and financial terms, and no longer replace the reserves being produced. As a result, the economically powerful oil companies are under great pressure, both financially and politically, as oil remains the backbone of the global economy.>Development scenarios and political pressure for growth as a means of solving economic woes both require more net energy, which is the amount of energy available after energy (and thus financial) inputs required for new sources to come on line are deducted. In today’s economy, more energy usually means ...

The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels
The Moral Case for Fossil
Could everything we know about fossil fuels be wrong?For decades, environmentalists have told us that using fossil fuels is a self-destructive addiction that will destroy our planet. Yet at the same time, by every measure of human well-being, from life expectancy to clean water to climate safety, life has been getting better and better.How can this be?The explanation, energy expert Alex Epstein argues in The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels, is that we usually hear only one side of the story. We’re taught to think only of the negatives of fossil fuels, their risks and side effects, but not their positives—their unique ability to provide cheap, reliable energy for a world of seven billion people. And the moral significance of cheap, reliable energy, Epstein argues, is woefully underrated. Energy is our ability to improve every single aspect of life, whether economic or environmental.If we look at the big picture of fossil fuels compared with the alternatives, the overall impact of using fossil fuels is to make the world a far better place. We are morally obligated to use more fossil fuels for the sake of our economy and our environment.Drawing on original insights and cutting-edge research, Epstein argues that most of what we hear about fossil fuels is a myth. For instance . . .Myt...
