      BOOK REVIEW By: Wole Akinyosoye. I read Managing Petroleum Resources- The Norwegian Model by AL-Kasim long before I read Nigeria’s Petroleum Industry: A Maverick Pioneer, the recently released autobiography by Chief FRA Marinho. The latter, you will recall, served as the first and only Managing Director of the defunct Nigerian National Oil. Redwood’s Petroleum: A Treatise, published in , was the first major systematic book on various aspects of the petroleum industry, and trained several generations of petroleum experts in the early 20th century. The book is still a valuable source of historical information on oil.
