For our many readers involved in the search for, or production of offshore oil, we provide this copy of an advertisement that we found and checked out. The author Louis W. Powers proved out to have a fine record as a professional employee of EXXON (about 19 years) and ARAMCO (about two years) with decades of service as an independent petroleum consultant. His work comes recommended by serious petroleum Industry professionals and academics like Dr. John Lee, Petroleum engineering professor at Texas A&M and Gene Ames, former chairman of the Independent Petroleum Association of America. We think the book runs about $69. If you are concerned professionally with the real level of global proven oil reserves and other critical oil related questions of the day so likely to influence economic development, war and peace; American Admiralty Books recommends this reference work.
