Current Issue: June 2015

This is the Rocky Mountain issue in which the EXPLORER highlights some in-depth coverage of what Rocky Mountain petroleum geologists are doing to make the most of the downturn. Readers will also find:

  • An update on the heated political climate in Colorado, where industry and activists have been squaring-off over hydraulic fracturing.
  • An examination of how the United States has overtaken many OPEC nations to become the top producer in the world.
  • A profile on pioneering geologist Anny Coury: how she defied expectations, and Nazi occupation, to become one of AAPG’s most celebrated figures.
  • Coverage of one AAPG member’s involvement in a landmark deepwater discovery offshore Colombia.

We also include some coverage of several individual plays throughout the Rocky Mountain Section, a look at the new industry taking shape in Mexico, as well as the regular columns and news features that are staples of the monthly EXPLORER.
