Commit to Safe and Efficient Operations is a road-map (recipe) for transforming your organization, division or team's safety culture. After reading this book, you should not only believe that transforming your culture is possible, but you will be armed with the practical knowledge to do so. It's time to trade Safety vs Performance attitudes for a Safety AND Performance mindset. Both are operational objectives. Safety and Efficiency must become one as we continue to deliver operations that are safe for our workforce and deliver outstanding operational performance that maximize a return to our shareholders. A popular Operations Vice President was addressing his crews when he revealed this truth about the oil field culture. Most of you in this room know me or have heard of me. When I was coming up through the organization, I got promoted because I took risks and got the job done. In fact, I did it so well they made me a Vice President. The only way I still have my job today is that I had to change. I would be fired today for the same behaviors that got me promoted five years ago.

Operating Expenses, Cash Flow, Finding and Development Costs, Return on Capital Employed are but a few of the hundreds of measurements and metrics used to analyze performance in the oil and gas industry. From individual wells to entire portfolios, performance analysis is used to make decisions throughout an organization. Unfortunately, performance analysis is generally conducted in the higher echelons of an oil and gas company, and thus its value in creating actionable information at the field level is generally lost. This book seeks to bridge this gap by introducing the basic concepts of oil and gas performance analysis. Features and Benefits A common sense methodology that will keep any performance analysis focused, on point and capable of providing useful and actionable information An introduction to the myriad of data sources used in performance analysis including lease operating statements (LOS reports), reserve reports and financial statements An introduction to the most relevant performance metrics used in oil and gas performance analysis including production and cost metrics, reserves, cash flow, and other financial metrics How to analyze, interpret, and evaluate the performance of individual fields, portfolios and overall company performance
Brian James Leech provides a social and environmental history of Butte, Montana's Berkeley Pit, an open-pit mine which operated from 1955 to 1982. Using oral history interviews and archival finds, The City That Ate Itself explores the lived experience of open-pit copper mining at Butte's infamous Berkeley Pit. Because an open-pit mine has to expand outward in order for workers to extract ore, its effects dramatically changed the lives of workers and residents. Although the Berkeley Pit gave consumers easier access to copper, its impact on workers and community members was more mixed, if not detrimental. The pit's creeping boundaries became even more of a problem. As open-pit mining nibbled away at ethnic communities, neighbors faced new industrial hazards, widespread relocation, and disrupted social ties. Residents variously responded to the pit with celebration, protest, negotiation, and resignation. Even after its closure, the pit still looms over Butte. Now a large toxic lake at the center of a federal environmental cleanup, the Berkeley Pit continues to affect Butte's search for a postindustrial future.
