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.

The discovery and imaging of a mammoth magma reservoir beneath the Yellowstone supervolcano is a capstone to decades of research. Scientists have long known of a smaller magma chamber, but the new chamber – 4.4 times larger – helps answer the questions about the volcanic system.

The Arctic has experienced significant plate motion from Cretaceous to present, and because of the ambiguities in the oceanic signature, resolving the most likely kinematic history is critical in understanding paleogeography and hence reservoir and source distribution. I will show a 3-stage kinematic model which, while not a unique solution, seems to best satisfy the known constraints.

The past 30+ years have witnessed a wide variety of exploration strategies and a number of technological “revolutions” in the search for oil and gas. Although the exploration landscape and tools of the trade are so different than they were in the early 1980’s, in one aspect we appear to have come full circle, realizing that a deep understanding of our basins is the critical element in any success.
