Twilight in the Desert

The Coming Saudi Oil Shock and the World Economy

Matthew R. Simmons

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Twilight in the Desert reveals a Saudi oil and production industry that could soon approach a serious, irreversible decline. In this exhaustively researched book, veteran oil industry analyst Matthew Simmons draws on his three-plus decades of insider experience and more than 200 independently produced reports about Saudi petroleum resources and production operations. He uncovers a story about Saudi Arabia’s troubled oil industry, not to mention its political and societal instability, which differs sharply from the globally accepted Saudi version. It’s a story that is provocative and disturbing, based on undeniable facts, but until now never told in its entirety. Twilight in the Desert answers all readers’ questions about Saudi oil and production industries with keen examination instead of unsubstantiated posturing, and takes its place as one of the most important books of this still-young century.

Customer Reviews

A well researched book

I must admit up front that I have no real knowledge of the oil industry other than the various books in print on the subject. I found this book to be very detailed and has lots of supporting references for the conclusions of the author. I found that the book did tend to repeat itself in certain sections and therefore made it longer than it needed to be.

An interesting point is that 10 years after this book was published Saudi Arabia is still producing 11.5 million barrels of oil per day according to the EIA website.

A worthwhile read for those interested in this subject.
