Review quote

I don't doubt that in those specialized companies and support groups there are many, many people who want to and ought to know more about the processes of producing oil and gas . . . . This book by Leffler and Raymond is a broad leap across the gap between the mysteries of production operations and the need for better understanding by those who help make it happen.--John F. Bookout, President & CEO (retired)
