June was an extraordinary month from the legislative perspective: Both the House and Senate Appropriations committees acted with unexpected alacrity and completed their work on DOE’s oil and natural gas budget activities. While both houses of Congress restored funding to the program in several areas, very little of the funding is targeted for the historical oil and natural gas programs.

As many members already are aware, the U.S. House of Representatives during consideration of the federal government’s 2007 budget has appropriated approximately 25 percent of its 2006 budget for oil and natural gas R&D. While few of us, as taxpayers, believe that growing the deficit is good for tomorrow’s taxpayers, the climate in which the House actions has proceeded reflects both the unpopularity of the oil and gas industry in Washington and the tendency of elected officials to play to popular themes in the eyes of their constituents.

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.
