Nowhere did the Oil Embargo of the early 1970s produce more concern than within the ranks of the petroleum and energy-related industries. Suddenly, the discovery of additional and alternative energy sources became paramount, and with it, the need for current information on oil production and energy technology.
This comprehensive microfiche collection offers managers, engineers, scientists, and researchers a single-source reference to the most recent developments in petroleum drilling and production technology. The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) is the world's leading technical society covering the drilling and production phases of petroleum and related fields. This collection contains nearly 8,000 technical papers published by the SPE from the mid-'50s to 1979, along with updates through 1994.
The topics within these papers include such things as:
Other subject areas include mineral economics and evaluation, management, and the emerging technical areas of geothermal energy, solution mining, in situ leaching, and coal liquification and gasification.
The SPE has a membership of more than 50,000 and it prepares and distributes approximately 1,000 papers annually from its worldwide meetings. It also publishes Journal of Petroleum Technology and other publications.
In addition to serving the information needs of engineers, geologists and other professionals, this collection provides an excellent research resource for graduate and undergraduate study.
