Current Issue: January 2022
The January EXPLORER is our World Developments Issue. In it, we review the major events of the oil and gas industry during 2021, and we also look ahead at the expected transformations to the industry wrought by new technologies and new demands from a world thirsty for energy. We also give significant attention to the new political pressures shaping the industry, such as the newly announced “Beyond Oil and Gas Alliance” at COP26, and industry leaders’ response to such pressures at the World Petroleum Congress held recently in Houston. Also, we take a look a movie that’s in the works about the life of AAPG Member Glen Penfield and his transformative discovery of the Chicxulub asteroid crater.
