Product Description

Review

"Russian ecologist Patin synthesizes the massive research on all aspects of the impact of expanding the industry onto the continental shelf on the environment, fish stock, and fisheries in shelf waters. He emphasizes the environmental levels, behavior, and toxicities of oil and gas hydrocarbons and related chemicals and wastes, including so-called low-toxicity drilling muds and cuttings. He also analyzes strategic principles of environmental management and regulation for environmental protection and ecological monitoring in relation to offshore oil and gas activity. An impetus for the work is the increasing exploitation of Russia's offshore oil and gas resources, the richest in the world, and the recent bitter dispute with Exxon about it." -- SciTech Book News, Book News, Inc. December, 1999
