As humankind figures out how to provide energy in a sustainable way for the Earth's growing population in the future, the story of unconventional energy-specifically, how these resources came about, and what their arrival means for all of us-will figure prominently in our discussions and planning about what to do next. Dorraj and Morgan are the perfect choice to tell this story via the many and varied contributions captured in this book. This makes a valuable contribution to this important topic. -- Robert K. Perrons, Queensland University of Technology
Unconventional oil and gas resources are contributing a growing share to the world's fossil fuel supply, and will continue to do so for a while, despite the growth of low carbon energy. Ken Morgan and Manochehr Dorraj have performed a valuable task by assembling a group of specialists to provide insightful accounts of the most important of these resources. The analyses cover a range of historical, technological, commercial and regulatory issues, and provide the reader with a solid understanding of this important source of energy. -- Philip Andrews-Speed, National University of Singapore
