Information on the petroleum geology of the North Sea continues to accrue at an astounding rate, which alone would warrant a fourth edition of this classic work. However, since the publication of the third edition emphasis within the petroleum industry has shifted from exploration to the appraisal and development of existing hydrocarbon resources. This change is reflected in this new edition, which has been significantly expanded to accomodate the additional material. The centrepiece of the book, however, remains a series of descriptions, in stratigraphic order, of the depositional history
Petroleum Geology of the North Sea can still be highly recommended to industry geologists without prior knowledge of the region, to university teachers looking for a case study in a petroleum geology or basin analysis course, and to undergraduates on the receiving end of such courses. Geological Magazine on the third edition " ... now out in a long-awaited, fully revised edition, (the book) has been the mainstay for many courses on the North Sea for the past eight years." New Scientist on the third edition
