If there was one personal lesson that I learned while moving from conventional oil and gas exploration efforts to broach the realm of unconventional resources more than 15 years ago, it is that many, if not all paradigms were bound to be broken. This sometimes came with a degree of trepidation. The less obvious answers were often tied to challenging previously accepted principles in the hope that another conundrum could be solved.

When one lives in Louisiana, even in the northern part, February and early March are full of tidings of “laissez les bon temps rouler!” or “let the good times roll!’’ Only geoscience nerds like you and I would apply that to May’s exceptional 2019 AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition in San Antonio. So, start these good times rolling now by registering early on or before March 21 for a great discount.
