Can anyone recommend the Dictionnaire technique des termes pétroliers, 4ème édition 2012 anglais - français / français - anglais/Technical Dictionary of Petroleum Terms, 4th 2012 English - French / French - English? Claims to have more than 50,000 terms and expressions and covers various energy fields, not just petroleum. Paper dictionaries seem such a huge investment these days (though this particular offer I've received also includes the CD-ROM version too), so it would be nice to have some sort of endorsement before forking out.

Thanks,
Moira

One from Technip Jun 25, 2013

http://www.amazon.fr/Dictionnaire-pétrole-autres-sources-dénergie/dp/2710809117/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1372186904&sr=8-1&keywords=technip%20pétrole

Technip supplies the oil industry, so I tend to trust them. It says on the back cover 80,000 terms and expressions. I find it comprehensive and detailed, but I haven't had the time to read it all yet.
It is also helpful for mining, seismic and geology.

I would have liked drawings with part/component lists, but there are some appendices about reservoirs, units used and other interesting stuff.

And it feels good to handle paper on a regular basis.

Philippe

Hello Moira Jun 25, 2013

Could you tell us if the offer you mention is available somewhere on the net or is it a private thing?
Thanx,
Christophe
PS: thanx Philippe for the ref.

Thanks, guys Jun 26, 2013

Ah yes, the sweet feel of paper

Christophe, it's an e-mail I received (though I doubt it was personal), which went to my spam box! Same offer not available on the company's website, however. Dicoland (La Maison du Dictionnaire), based in Paris.

About the same price as my link above on Amazon. You may want to shop around to see if the offer is really an offer.

Different dictionary! Jun 26, 2013

Actually I've just realised that Philippe's Amazon link is to another petroleum dictionary. The one I'm talking about is pictured lower down the same page. See http://www.amazon.fr/Dictionnaire-technique-pétroliers-anglais-français/dp/2856082696/ref=pd_sim_sbs_b_2 - 4th ed. 2012 (cf 2008 for the Technip one).

you may want to have a look at Amazon.com / amazon.co.uk/ amazon.de, etc.
I ordered a book at Amazon-USA for 7€ last week instead of more than a 100€ in Europe!!
Happy shopping!
