  This is a very hard to find Field Handbook from 1963 which is the first edition that replaced the Field Pocketbook. It covers drilling, production, engineering activities, and more! Great illustrations and graphs. The cover shows marks and the starting of a split on the front vinyl covering, but the interior is very good. No writing besides the previous owner name up front, Doug LeVan.

Bataafse Petroleum Maatschappij (BPM), also known as Bataafsche Petroleum Maatschappij (English: Batavian Oil Company) was a subsidiary of the Royal Dutch Shell oil company established in 1907 which extracted and refined oil in the Netherlands East Indies. The company was 60 percent owned by the Royal Dutch Petroleum Company, and 40% by the Shell Transport and Trading Company; it acted as a Dutch holding company for the merged Royal Dutch Shell Group along with its UK analogue the Anglo-Saxon Petroleum Company. The two were merged in 2005 creating a single holding structure for Shell.
