The ceremonies, held on May 28th 2013 in Abu Dhabi and on June 2nd 2013 in Muscat, were hosted by António Costa Silva, Managing Director of PARTEX Oil and Gas.

The distinguished speakers who were invited to introduce the book were Fareed Abdulla, Society of Petroleum Engineers Regional Director (Middle East, North Africa and India) in Abu Dhabi and Abdullah Al Lamki, former Deputy Managing Director of PDO, in Muscat.  

The book launch brought together leaders from the private and government sectors and served as a forum to highlight the importance of the sharing of knowledge between industry and academia and the preparation of today’s professionals for tomorrow’s challenges.

Drawing on more than 60 years of the combined industry experience of its authors, this comprehensive textbook covers all major technical and non-technical aspects of the industry, from the exploration of oil and gas to their supply to the markets.

From the genesis and origins of petroleum to market issues, the book addresses the whole chain of the oil and gas industry: geology, exploration, development, production, refining, organizational and contractual matters, HSE, services, standards, markets, etc. It is truly a comprehensive manual that can be of particular use to the newcomers to the industry.
