Oil is the lifeblood that flows through the veins of industrialized nations. From gasoline to toothpaste and other practical necessities, oil's importance touches each and every one of us. Without oil, the world would cease to exist as we know it.

Terrorism & Oil is the first book to take an in-depth look at the oil industryÂ?s vulnerabilities to terrorism. Written by Neal Adams, one of the most influential voices in the oil industry, Terrorism & Oil delivers a powerful and thought-provoking message to a society addicted to this threatened resource.

September 11, 2001 terrorists proved they could deliver a devastating blow to a global heavyweight like the U.S. But nothing could deliver a knock-out to industrialized nations like pulling the plug on their economic lifeblood—Oil.

In his new book, Terrorism & Oil, Neal Adams discusses the vulnerabilities faced by the global petroleum supply and infrastructure in the wake of the war on terror. Beginning with the economic impact of oil, Adams educates readers on:

  • Worldwide energy vulnerabilities
  • Potential terrorist modes of attack
  • Oilfields and related targets
  • Effective preparation and response strategies

Valuable to both industry and non-industry readers, Terrorism & Oil is essential for anyone working in oil-related professions or concerned about resource security. From tool pushers to engineers; from executives to government officials and financial advisors; from city planners to rescue and response professionals; everyone will gain insight from this study on oil security issues.

Terrorism & Oil will not only help you understand the impact a terrorist attack can have on the global oil industry—with it you can be proactive in facilities security and implementing a company-wide program.
