Elsevier has acquired 32 books fromĀ Gulf Publishing Company (GPC). The portfolio includes petroleum engineering titles in drilling, pipeline, oil and gas, and safety.

The GPC titles are described as for professionals in upstream oil and gas engineering and cover drilling, recovery methods, reservoir management, processing, and pipeline transmission. They include the Gulf Drilling Series; handbooks in oil and natural gas engineering; books on enhanced and non-conventional recovery techniques; and data handbooks useful as reference sources for researchers and applied engineers working with the physical and chemical properties of hydrocarbons.

'The acquisition of the Gulf titles expands Elsevier's petroleum engineering offering, positioning Elsevier as the leading book publisher for the oil and gas industry,' said Suzanne BeDell, managing director, Science & Technology Books, Elsevier. 'The titles are of high-quality and complement our existing energy and fuel list, which is a benefit for corporate and academic customers using our ScienceDirect platform.'

All of the GPC books will be available through the Elsevier Store and on ScienceDirect. Many of the titles are also available on Knovel.
