Sydney. 1992. First Edition;. pages xx, 172, bibliog., index; 44 colour plates, 5 maps, 71 text illustrations; hardcover in dust jacket (protected); erasure mark on back of front endpaper o/wise fine condition. ISBN-064610246X Out-of-print, very scarce. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR. When black oil flowed in an area to the west of Lake Kutubu, Southern Highlands Province, Papua New Guinea, in 1986, it was the culmination of an exploration effort that had begun seventy years earlier. Dr Frank Rickwood, a highly experienced geologist, tells the story of the search for oil in Papua New Guinea with an insider's knowledge. He describes the experiences of the early geological survey parties who travelled on foot into unmapped country and made contact with people who had, in some cases, never seen a European. He explains how geological information was painstakingly gathered, and theories were formulated to explain the tantalising shows of gas and oil. Difficult to obtain as this book, when new, is reported not to have been sold in bookshops.
