Paul Frankel: Common Carrier of Common Sense, A Selection of his Writings 1946-1988 [Signed by Frankel]

£50.00

Product description

Published in 1989 by Oxford University Press for the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies. Edited by Ian Skeet with an epilogue by Robert Mabro. Includes an index.

Paul Frankel worked for independent oil refining and marketing companies and Manchester Oil Refineries before setting up his own consultancy company, Petroleum Economics Limited, in 1955. He lectured widely on the economics of the oil industry both on an academic and commercial basis. To celebrate his 85th birthday and his formal withdrawal from the oil industry, with which he has been associated for over 60 years, this book brings together a selection of his writings. The text enables the reader to trace the development of Frankel's thought in response to the enormous changes that have taken place in the world oil industry since he first expounded his theories on petroleum economics in "Essentials of Petroleum", published in 1946 and reprinted in an abridged form in this collection.

This a first edition signed by Paul Frankel on the title page.

Complete with original unclipped dust jacket and in a crisp, fresh and clean condition throughout. Slight creasing to the top edge of the dust jacket.
