While the outcry against the petroleum industry drilling in residential areas is as high as ever, a small, privately-held petroleum and real estate company in Midland, Texas, is making headlines for pulling off what some might consider an impossible feat: creating communities where people are willingly moving onto active oil and gas fields and living harmoniously with t he industry.

The StatesFirst working group on induced seismicity just released its report,” Potential Injection-Induced Seismicity Associated with Oil & Gas Development: A Primer on Technical and Regulatory Considerations Informing Risk Management and Mitigation.” The report describes the causes of and ways to prevent induced earthquakes. It also looks at the interaction between regulators and the public, and the report includes case studies of how states have responded to instances of suspected induced seismicity in California, Oklahoma, Ohio, Illinois, and Colorado.

Explorer Historical Highlights

The discovery and untimely loss of the Jusepin Deep Field in Venezuela is a story of creativity, perseverance, technical excellence and emotion – which are qualities we as geoscientists like to feel we bring to our jobs every day.

The key elements for shale resource evaluation are the mineral content – such as clay, quartz and calcite – the total organic carbon (TOC) content, the brittleness and some mechanical properties of the shale rocks. Geomechanical studies are necessary both for understanding wellbore environment stability and also interpreting well log data, by estimating the mechanical properties of the subsurface.

Times may be tough for seismic companies, but not all companies are waiting for the current storm to pass. Spectrum ASA recently moved to gain a greater global footprint by purchasing Fugro’s 2-D seismic library – a move Spectrum CEO Rune Eng called a “game changer” for the multi-client seismic imaging company.

VG Abstract

The following short course option was developed for geology and geophysics students that have not had much exposure to how geoscience is applied in industry. It can be tailored for undergraduate juniors and seniors or graduate students. The agenda can be modified to meet specific needs and time constraints. Contact the presenter to discuss options.

VG Abstract

In comparison with the known boundary conditions that promote salt deformation and flow in sedimentary basins, the processes involved with the mobilization of clay-rich detrital sediments are far less well established. This talk will use seismic examples in different tectonic settings to document the variety of shale geometries that can be formed under brittle and ductile deformations.
