Leffler has a knack for demystifying very technical processes related to the petroleum industry, and again he has created a great basic primer, this time on deepwater exploration. The book discusses the history, equipment, and technology used in offshore exploration and production and covers everything from geology to production. The book is written in very understandable language and the reader only needs to have a basic understanding of science and physics to follow along. As the title ...more

Given the current media dribble, this is a good primer on what deepwater exploration and production is and its challenges--in simple English.
Leffler, Pattarozzi, and Sterling did an admirable job of explaining the history and continued development of technology to go deeper and deeper in petroleum exploration and production. Along the way, they show the wave in the evolution of Oil and Gas Exploration from onshore, offshore, and deepwater in a graph of technology change over time.

Having plowed through a number of books about oil production now, I have found this to be the clearest and best explained of them all. The jargon of deepwater drilling, so baffling to me in my previous encounters with it, suddenly made a lot of sense after reading Leffler's explanations. The book is concise, impeccably structured and virtually free of fluff after the first two chapters. You could not ask for a better treatment of the topic. Highly recommended.

Recommends it for: Everyone
Magnificently well written book with fun and humour that makes it an extremely interesting book to read.... covers all the basic aspects of Deepwater Operations pretty well with wonderful diagrams, pictures and flow charts. I will highly recommend it to anyone wanting to start on Deepwater from scratch.
