G&G 274: Fossil Fuels and World Energy: Home

This is a course guide for those looking for information on the oil & gas industry. It includes helpful tips, search strategies, and links to relevant Yale resources.

Let's get started!

Do you need to find information on oil fields or the oil and gas industry for your course's problem set (or a paper)? If so, you've come to the correct place! This guide will walk you through a few very helpful concepts and resources that we have available locally.

  • Search strategies in Articles+. This page will show you tips and techniques for locating information about very large (and very new) oil fields in Articles+ using several key facets.
  • Reports, Articles, & Industry Research. The information you need won't be in just one place — you'll need to make use of a large cross-section of our article & abstract databases to find what you need.
  • Online reference and research materials. Depending on what you need, you may need to consult a Treatise or two — such as the Treatise on Geomorphology or Geophysics or Geochemistry. These contain entries signed by eminent researchers that provide topical overviews and key information about concepts.

Some energy-related information is held in other subject guides, such as those used in F&ES. Below, please find a list of other places that will be helpful if your question is really sticky. You can also email me (see the contact info at the right) with questions.
