Dr. Stefan Orszulik is the Editor of the 3rd edition of the Environmental Technology in the Oil Industry ISBN BSc PhD chemistry from Royal Holloway College, University of London. Postdoctoral research into enzyme mechanisms at University of Strathclyde. This significantly updated edition looks at each stage in the life cycle of petroleum products, from exploration to end use, examining the environmental pressures on the Oil Industry and its response. The Oil Industry produces a range of products without which modern civilization could not exist. Nevertheless, in today’s environmentally conscious world, society demands that the industry manufactures and markets the products without unduly polluting the environment. Environmental technology is the scientific study or the application of methods to understand and handle problems which influence our surround ings and, in the case of this book, the surroundings around oil industry facilities and where oil products are used.

Environmental technology in the oil industry. [S T Orszulik;] -- This timely book examines in detail the life-cycle of petroleum products, the environmental issues arising, and how the industry has responded to these challenges with the application of technology. The chapter introduces oilfield environmental control technology (ECT) as a part of petroleum engineering discipline that concerns interaction between the technology and natural environment. coexist in a marine environment that is sensitive to exploitation and contamination. Fisheries Research Services (FRS) has a significant role, providing advice on the nature and extent of the impact of the O&G industries to their regulator, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). Environmental Effects of Oil and Gas Production Exploration. Environmental technology is the scientific study or the application of meth-ods to understand and handle problems which influence our surroundings and, in the case of this book, the surroundings around oil industry facilities and where oil products are used.
