Managing Director - Yale Center for Natural Carbon Capture

The Yale Center for Natural Carbon Capture (YCNCC) is a newly established center at Yale University. We are currently seeking a Managing Director who will be responsible for the day-to-day administration of the center and will work closely with the Center Directors. The Managing Director will contribute to new program development.

VG Abstract

This lecture will discuss the differences between carbonates and siliciclastics from their chemical composition through their distributions in time and space. Building on these fundamental differences, we will explore the challenges carbonates pose to petroleum geologists in terms of seismic interpretation, reservoir quality prediction, field development, etc. Peppered with humorous personal stories, still raging academic debates, and the heartfelt frustrations of real industry professionals, the aim is to inspire students and young professionals to rise to the occasion and embrace the reservoir rocks that petroleum geologists love to hate.
