Counter The Standard Handbook of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering was originally published as the Practical Petroleum Engineer's Handbook, by Zaba and Doherty, first published in 1937. The book went through five editions until Bill Lyons undertook the project in the 1980s and gave the book a new title and new direction, offering the oil and gas industry a complete overview of operations, from equipment and production to the economics of oil and gas.

Written by over a dozen leading industry experts and academics, the Standard Handbook of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering provides the best, most comprehensive source of petroleum engineering information available. Now in an easy-to-use single volume format, this classic is one of the true "must haves" in any petroleum or natural gas engineer's library.
