Editorial Reviews

"It is a compact book which delves into some of the aspects of hydrocarbon exploration in India. The book is a collection of 12 papers on diverse fields, accompanied by detailed charts and pictures. . The diversity of information put together in this book will be useful to have in libraries of universities and oil industries, for individuals associated with the oil industry, as well as amateur geologists who are interested in the Indian hydrocarbon exploration scenario." (Partha Pratim Saikia, Journal of the Geological Society of India, Vol. 87 (87), 2016)
