“This book is a valuable tool in understanding the dynamics of the oil industry from both a broad and specific economic perspective. It contains insights into the underlying features and mechanisms of the oil industry and its many branches, as well as a special emphasis on relevant international problems. It also provides a wealth of statistical information and should be of interest to all concerned with energy matters” (Euroil).

“Petroleum Economics, by Jean Masseron, is a fine introductory text to the entire scope of activities and economic conditions facing the world-wide petroleum industry” (AAPG Bulletin).

“This book, already used by many organizations, should be especially useful for engineers, economists and managers concerned with energy matters, and also those who, beyond the technical aspects, wish to acquire and in-depth understanding of the economic mechanisms in a vital sector for world development today” (JCPT).
