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.
