Change and Continuity

Abstract:
This award, which elevates me to the ranks of its previous distin-guished recipients, gives me great pleasure, especially since I am the first non-American to receive it. This in itself is an indication of the ever-widening scope of the Association. It comes to me at the end of a long life devoted to our industry. It is almost sixty years since I entered it as a junior business executive ... It is now forty years since I wrote my first book, appropriately titled Essentials of Petroleum, and almost thirty years since I left business to make my hobby my job when I formed Petroleum Economics Ltd., an international consulting firm.
