Everything Canadians wanted to know about their crude oil and natural gas industry

    ...but didn't know who to ask

    CALGARY, Sept. 8 /CNW/ - The origins of crude oil and natural gas. How
many litres are in a barrel of oil. How gasoline prices are set. All of this
information, and more, is available in the latest edition of Our Petroleum
Challenge, released today by the non-profit Canadian Centre for Energy
Information (Centre for Energy).
    The release of the fifth printing of the seventh edition of Our Petroleum
Challenge marks the 31st anniversary of the book's introduction. Over the past
three decades, Our Petroleum Challenge has become a must-read publication for
anyone with more than a passing interest in the oil and natural gas
    "The book is part primer, part reference guide and part dictionary," says
David M. Carson, Vice President of the Centre for Energy. "The information in
this book is comprehensive, but it's written in very accessible language which
makes it perfect for teachers, new industry hires, or others seeking a deeper
understanding of the industry."
    An important aspect of the information contained in Our Petroleum
Challenge is that the material is reviewed for accuracy and balance by a
number of industry and non-industry representatives.
    Our Petroleum Challenge is also supplemented by a number of teaching
resources for educators. Many education institutions across the country
include the book in their libraries and as part of their curriculum.
    Beyond the basics of the oil and gas industry, additional information and
news about Canada's energy industries can be found on the Centre for Energy's
web portal at www.centreforenergy.com.
    Copies of the book can be ordered at the Centre for Energy's online
bookstore at www.centreforenergy.com/Education/Bookstore.
