Aimed at students and professionals, this book covers every major aspect of petroleum: the origin of fossil hydrocarbons and their chemical/physical properties; discovering hydrocarbon reserves; recovering oil, gas, and bitumen; purifying gas; the chemical and physical characterization of crude oil; refining crudes into fuels and lubricants; and converting simple chemicals into solvents, polymers, fibers, rubbers, coatings, and myriad other products, including pharmaceuticals. Readers will learn how the industry operates, from  "upstream" exploration and production, "midstream" transportation to "downstream" refining, and manufacturing of finished products. The book also contains unique chapters on midstream operations, learnings from major accidents, and safety /environmental laws and regulations. It builds on the authors' previous books and teaching material from a highly rated course that is taught at the Florida A&M University /Florida State University (USA).

Dr. Chang Samuel Hsu had over 32 year experience at ExxonMobil and BP before joining in Florida State University in 2010 to establish the Future Fuels Institute. He also established the Refinery of the Future Lab at BP. Currently, he is an Adjunct Professor at Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering of Florida A&M University/Florida State University teaching "Petroleum Science and Technololgy" and also at College of Chemical Engineering of the China University of Petroleum in Beijing teaching graduate level "Biorefinery". In 2012, he founded Petro Bio Consulting, LLC. Dr. Hsu was the first researcher to introduce ultrahigh resolution Fourier-transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (FT-ICR MS) for in-depth molecular characterization of petroleum fractions.  He was one of the pioneers to develop tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) at Exxon to provide an additional dimension for the determination of molecular structure of the components in complex mixtures.  Dr. Hsu’s research interests cover petroleum (both upstream and downstream), coal, shale and biomass oils. His current focuses are novel characterization of petroleum biomarkers for exploration and exploitation, and heavy hydrocarbon characterization for hydroprocessing, catalytic cracking, coking and fuels/lubes analyses. He also has extensive experience in environmental damage assessment and remediation for oil spills. 

During his 40 years in commercial energy, Dr. Paul Robinson visited more than 140 sites in 34 countries on 5 Continents, At nearly half of those sites, he led or participated in projects or provided operations support. He started his career at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where his research focused on generating hydrogen with thermochemical cycles for water-splitting. He then  spent more than 30 years in various roles at Unocal, Chevron, and Shell. At Unocal, he developed hydrotreating catalysts, studies convresion of s
