I was looking for a resource that would explain how to use PM in the oil and gas industry or even better how does the industry do PM. The book has several chapters upfront with information about the oil and gas industry with some words that project management is necessary to manage the industry. Then a lot of discussion about generic project management and references to the PMBOK. The one detailed case study related to oil and gas is a case study for doing a trade study to select a drilling method (chapter 9). A lot of information (pages 351-355 about selecting office furniture - really?) but little or no method for connecting oil and gas industry and project management. Appendix A has about 500 briefing charts mostly describing engineering related to resevoirs.

The "Oil and Gas Industry" in the title could be omitted.
I think it was put there just to add $50 to the book's price.
Most of the chapters are ordinary Project Management guidelines (nothing special for the O&G Industry). Actually, there is one chapter which refers to O&G, but this is reproduced by another book!
Having read the contents, they are misleading (There are a lot of Oil & Gas related headings, but they point out to minor paragraphs in the text!)
I wouldn't recommend it...

I am impressed by the book's list of international contributors. It truly gives a global view on Project Management.
As a Full Professor of Fluid Dynamics and Director of the Graduate Program on Energy Geopolitics at the Argentine Army School of Engineering (Buenos Aires, Argentina) I'm very interested in books related to those subjects. Currently, I am working on the relationship between Project Engineering and Global Energy Geopolitics focused in the Oil& Gas International Projects, so this book is an important source to add, confirm, correct, and review my own views on the academic field I teach.
This book deals on very complex subjects that demands knowledge, experience, and an exhausting effort. I know because I've been unsuccessfully trying to finish mine for years. In short, an excellent book that Project Engineers and Managers should have in their library.
I would love to contact the book's authors as we work in the same academic field. I can easily be found in the main browsers under my name, "Ing Guillermo Martinez Funes". Thanks for the book. You can add this remark to any of your publications and quote me.
