Description

This is intended for the non-technical reader. As far as possible, I have avoided using terms such as blowdown drum and ISOM unit, so that readers unfamiliar with refinery technology will not be put off. I would describe this as a work of organisational sociology, about how and why organisations fail to learn, with relevance far beyond the petroleum industry.
