About this book

This significantly updated second edition identifies the issues and constraints for each stage in the production of petroleum products - what they are, who is imposing them and why, their technical and financial implications. It then looks in detail at the technological solutions which have been found or are being developed. It also places these developments in their legal and commercial context and looks at the longer term environmental outlook in the light of increasingly sophisticated models in predicting climate change and other consequences of use of petroleum products.

From the reviews of the second edition: "The book is simply fantastic. It is easy to read and understand with relevant cases and good layout. This book includes everything we needed. It covers a wide range of realistic situations. ! it contains relevant information that you can't find in a lot of books supposedly covering environmental aspects. Written primarily for those working in the oil and related industries, this book also provides essential reference material for government and research institutions and all those with an interest in environmental technological issues." (Current Engineering Practice, 2008)
