Never trust a wellbore diagram drawn by someone else. If the workover rig finds a fish in the well that is also in the well records but not shown on your wellbore diagram, YOU LOSE!

Just sold my 1000th hardback color book "Oil and Gas Survival Guide, Handover Notes for the Next Generation". On my way to being a best seller. LOL. Everyone likes Chapter 1 in Volume 1, "Reputation, Integrity, Morals, and Respect" with the stories about people lacking these qualities in the oilfield. Available at oilandgassurvivalguide.com


I have seen ideas work on paper but not in the field, but have never seen ideas that did not work on paper work in the field. Sean S. Murphy, P.E., author of Oil and Gas Survival Guide


Oilandgassurvivalguide.com Sold Vol. 1 and 2 to a tax accountant today wanting to learn about the oil and gas industry. I told him he was going to be a petroleum engineer by the time he finished the book.


A few comments about the book sent to me from readers. You can purchase the book at oilandgassurvivalguide.com:

"Book is one of a kind having both the engineering and stories that back up the recommendations. Even in the boring procedures section, you broke the boredom by providing a photo and details about the farm outhouse. Laughed my ass off."

"Took me from laughter to tears over and over. Never seen an engineering book so entertaining."

"I thought I had seen the worst in management but know now that my managers in their lifetime did not cost their companies as much as some of the managers making a single decision in your book."

"I never realized the oilfield was so dangerous. No wonder they pay so much to work in the oil and gas industry."

"Highly recommended for oilfield workers, engineers, and managers. Might keep some of them from getting fired or even killed."

"I thought the BP Deepwater Horizon Macondo blowout was the worst oil spill disaster in the world. I guess the makers of the film did not read your book."

"My generation never knew about the New London School explosion. This tragedy needs to be passed down from generation to generation as it teaches us that safety is more important than saving money."


Thanks for making my book a success
