Photos Of The Oil and Gas  and Alternative Energy Industries

This site features photos of the energy industry, which includes oil and gas, wind power, solar, nuclear and biofuels.

These are some of my recent  oilfield photos taken in Texas and New Mexico.

 I have posted some articles for those considering a career in the oilfield. It is a financially rewarding career path, but one that can be full of hardship and hazards.  You'll find a list of oil field slang and terms that will come in handy.

"Oil Patch Bookstore" for some good  oilfield books  and books on the  oil and gas industry. The two books that  I recommend the most are The Nontechnical Guide To Petroleum Geology, Exploration, Drilling and Production   and A Primer Of Oilwell Drilling Edition 7 by Paul M. Bommer.  Both used by many colleges and technical schools as well as Oilfield Service companies in their training programs. I hope you enjoy the site and the oilfield photos.  Nolan
