WALTHAM, Massachusetts, August 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

New titles on drilling, pipeline, oil and gas, and safety position Elsevier  as leading book publisher for petroleum engineering industry

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced that it has acquired certain book assets of Gulf Publishing Company (GPC). The portfolio of 32 books includes petroleum engineering titles in drilling, pipeline, oil and gas, and safety.

The GPC titles are for professionals in upstream oil and gas engineering and cover drilling, recovery methods, reservoir management, processing, and pipeline transmission. They include the Gulf Drilling Series, which emphasizes current techniques and technologies in the drilling industry; handbooks in oil and natural gas engineering; books on enhanced and non-conventional recovery techniques, including the high interest area of hydraulic fracturing (fracking); and data handbooks useful as reference sources for researchers and applied engineers working with the physical and chemical properties of hydrocarbons.

"The acquisition of the Gulf titles expands Elsevier's petroleum engineering offering, positioning Elsevier as the leading book publisher for the oil and gas industry," said Suzanne BeDell, Managing Director, Science & Technology Books, Elsevier. "The titles are of high-quality and complement our existing energy and fuel list, which is a benefit for corporate and academic customers using our ScienceDirect platform."

All of the GPC books will be available through the Elsevier Store and on ScienceDirect, a full-text scientific database offering journal articles and book chapters from more than 2,500 peer-reviewed journals and more than 11,000 books. Many of the titles are also available on Knovel, a web-based application integrating technical information with analytical and search tools to deliver answers engineers can trust.
