The Color Of Oil
The 204-page book provides a concise history of the oil industry and explains how the role of the industry has grown over time. The Color of Oil logically brings together all of the elements of the industry as it weaves the story of a business upon which the entire world is dependent for survival.
Economides and Oligney conclude their work by stating their conviction that the world is not running out of oil or gas. They hold that natural market forces will generate the resources and technology to solve the world's seemingly insatiable thirst for hydrocarbons. To this optimistic conclusion, however, they add a serious warning - governments should stay out of the petroleum business.
