Titles have been chosen with their availability in mind and should be found in most metropolitan public libraries and in medium-sized academic and corporate libraries. Obscure works that could be found only in a few research libraries have been excluded.

Primarily titles published in English and deemed of interest to American companies operating abroad or engaged in the international marketing of oil have been selected. So that the titles listed are as accessible to the reader as possible, most date from 1985 and ought to be found in libraries or still in print.

This guide is organized to provide initially some background sources where
