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.

 Amazon has the book in stock. You may click on the book cover icon to order from Amazon. On 10/2/2012 the advertised Amazon price was about $7.00 cheaper than the direct from the publisher advertised price.Things change over time so we have copied to you the publisher's advertisement. The "Order" button may or may not work but their ad has both a website address and an 800 phone number. You might want to shop price a bit but this book will no doubt be a standard reference for the Petroleum industry and policy makers for some years to come. Add it to your professional library before the first run sells out.
