From offshore platforms and drilling ships to inland waterway barges and floating production and storage vessels that are larger than aircraft carriers, giant energy companies rely on the maritime industry to deliver oil and gas to the nations of the world.

Bob Davis, author of the new book, Gusher!, will give readers an inside look at the early history of how ships were used in the oil business. Selected stories from his book will be highlighted, including his family’s historical connection to the early shipping trade and how companies like ExxonMobil came to employ a host of specialized vessels in their worldwide operations.
