Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the publication of five new geology books. These include the updated and revised third edition of Elements of Petroleum Geology, written by preeminent petroleum geologists, Dr. Richard Selley and Dr. Stephen Sonnenberg.
Elements of Petroleum Geology reviews the concepts and methodology of petroleum exploration and production, and reflects the vast changes in the field since publication of the previous edition. It features new information on drilling activity and production methods including crude oil, directional drilling, thermal techniques, and gas plays as well as additional coverage of 3D seismic interpretation. With first-time sections on pressure compartments, and hydrocarbon adsorption and absorption in source rocks, it is a comprehensive resource for geophysicists, geologists, and petroleum engineers in the oil industry.
Editor Dr. Richard Selley is a Senior Research Fellow and Emeritus Professor of Petroleum Geology at Imperial College, London. He has more than 50 years of experience in the teaching, research and practical application of geoscience to petroleum exploration. Co-editor Dr. Stephen A. Sonnenberg is a Professor and holds the Charles Boettcher Distinguished Chair in Petroleum Geology at the Colorado School of Mines. He specializes in unconventional reservoirs, sequence stratigraphy, tectonic influence on sedimentation, and petroleum geology.
