Oil under the water

Britain's Offshore Oil and Gas takes sixth-formers through the story of these products with a scientifically demanding text linked to a first-rate series of maps, charts, diagrams and drawings. We learn about the underlying geology, about the engineering used in drilling and extraction and about the construction of platforms, with an examination of the significance of by-products for transport and housing and of implications for the economy and the environment. Published by the UK Offshore Operators Association at pound;9.95 with discounts to schools and colleges.
