'With a well paced, easy to read style, Pumped is a much needed primer to the Byzantine world of Canada's oil patch. From the fascinating history and politics (seven national energy programs, yikes!) to the booms and busts, mistakes and lessons, it's all here.'
Seasoned petroleum historian David Finch engages and entertains as he acquaints us with the basic vocabulary and mechanics of Canada's oil industry right through its most complex issues.
Perhaps you know the answers to some of the basics:
Do you recall the details of some of the programs?
Are you well versed enough in the politics to know the answers to these questions?
With short chapters, illustrations, maps, photographs, and a user friendly index glossary, Pumped makes the complicated, jargon rich, high stakes world of petroleum exploration, excavation, and consumption easy to understand.
Finch provides a balanced, knowledgeable, and often humorous primer on the mechanics, history, and politics of Canada's oil industry.
