Current Issue: April 2017
The April issue of the Explorer is now online.
It's our annual Seismic Advances issue and continues our "The Next 100 Years" series with a piece on the future of Big Data in the oil field, as well as coverage of a massive collection of seismic data on the Permian Basin.
Speaking of the Permian, we have coverage of the recent flurry — about $30 billion worth — of investment and acquisitions in the area.
We also have a profile piece on this year's Geosciences in the Media Award winner, photographer, geologist and polymath Michael Collier.
We also have a piece examining some of the new economic and social risks in the oil industry owing to the rise of social media, along with other industry news and, of course, all of our regular columns and features.
