Product Description


English for Global Industries: Oil and Gas

English for Global Industries: Oil and Gas is a study and practice book aimed at industry professionals working in or training towards managerial positions in the oil and gas industry. Although designed primarily for self-study, the book can be easily adapted for classroom use.

The main focus is to help students develop essential professional language and increase their effectiveness when they work in English. Full of up-to-date, industry-specific content, the units have four integrated components:

  • Focused reading
  • Vocabulary-building activities
  • Individualized ‘Put it to work’ activities
  • Full glossary of terms

There is a full answer key at the back of the book.

Each one-hour unit can be studied independently of the other units. Users can therefore select units that are most relevant to their needs. Topic areas include:

  • The Business of Oil and Gas
  • Working on a Rig
  • Drilling Operations
  • Geological and Geophysical Operations
  • Producing and Delivering
