View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This dictionary covers terms related to oil and gas drilling and drilling and recovery techniques. Care has been taken to incorporate terms and expressions used, by gathering information from reliable scientific and technical documents such as manuals, guides, brochures, specialized glossaries and diagrams. The fact that different companies and manufacturers use varying terms to describe similar objects or operations has not been overlooked.

Special attention has been devoted to important areas such as geology, drilling methods and equipment, logging, sampling, well servicing, mud engineering, offshore and permafrost conditions and preparation for shipping and monitoring; the dictionary therefore facilitates communication between those involved directly and indirectly with the development and management of energy resources. Oil companies, engineers, equipment manufacturers, students, translators and interpreters, and all those involved in the field of energy production will find this dictionary an invaluable reference tool.

There is a real need for a multilingual dictionary of oil and gas terminology, and this dictionary will largely satisfy this need...the compilers are to be congratulated on a successful outcome of this mammoth task... The dictionary is well produced and easy to read. Those in and around the petroleum industry will find it a valuable aid, and it is recommended to the libraries of companies and governmental agencies, and to all those who work in more than one language.
Earth Science Reviews
The difficulties experienced by foreign language operators in reading some U.S. oilfield literature can be imagined only by those who have experienced the problems even from a base of standard English... Elsevier have tackled the problem head-on with this extraordinary dictionary... This is an ambitious project of considerable complexity and it is to be hoped that it meets with the acceptance which the effort merits.
