As you read this column, the results of the mid-term elections will be relegated to the annals of history -- at least we can hope that is the case and we are not mired in issues of “hanging chads” or other election process quarrels.

This month the Senate will take up the bill addressing leasing the OCS Area 181 in the Eastern Gulf of Mexico. The expectation is that the Senate bill (S. 3711, called the “181 Bill”), if passed, will be the counterpart to H.R. 4761, the Deep Ocean Energy Resources Act passed by the House of Representatives on June 29. Conference proceedings likely will begin shortly after Senate action and naming of conferees for both the House and Senate. Both houses are expected to move quickly to name conferees if the Senate passes its OCS legislation.

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.
