I would like to suggest that far too much of the technical work purporting to guide exploration for petroleum is trivial, redundant and has little of use to offer toward finding new oil and gas accumulations. All geology is interesting; some geologic work is novel; damn little of the work we see is useful in finding new oil and gas fields!

Imagine it’s early in the morning and you’re collecting water from the kitchen faucet to start a cup of joe. Suddenly, the water ignites. Scary, huh? Such far-out stories and more continue to circulate as foes of the myriad shale plays ratchet up their attempts to curtail drilling and, perhaps above all, hydraulic fracturing.

At the start of the now-phenomenal shale play bonanza, the thinking in general was that the rocks were homogeneous across an area of interest. Then reality set in as the shale E&P players came to realize via the drill bit that heterogeneity rules, and homogeneity and uniformity are not even bit players in the big picture.
