“Every trade or profession has its language. The language is what gives it its unique identification. The oil and gas industry, just like other trade and professions, has its peculiar language. For those whose activities revolve round this industry, the surest way to build a bridge across to it is to be familiar with its unique identification”, Mr. Owhoko disclosed in the new book.
The author further said that the book is vital to all stakeholders in the oil and gas industry, particularly professionals, practitioners, journalists, contractors, businessmen and students, as it provides explanation to hitherto grey areas with robust clarity of concepts.
Indeed, the book is a must read, as all lives are impacted directly or indirectly by the oil and gas industry one way or the other.
