Summer NAPE was a sizzlin’ event at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston -- which was sizzlin’ in a whole different way during the “dog days” of late August.

To some, the academic world of colleges and universities represents Ivory Towers, detached from reality. To the U.S. Department of Energy, they represent a crucial – and practical – research potential.

Even with a proven product and willing investors putting together a big money deal can be a daunting project.

There’s nothing quite like a successful field project to demonstrate the commercial viability of a particular technology. So chalk one up for the recently completed wide-azimuth OBS (ocean bottom sensor) node survey over the BP-operated Atlantis field in the challenging deepwater Gulf of Mexico.

When you’re hot, you’re hot -- sizzling, in fact. Whether offshore -- like the Western Neptune, left, acquiring a wide-azimuth seismic survey in the Gulf of Mexico -- or deep in undeveloped territory, the seismic industry is having no trouble finding work to keep them busy.

Explorer Geophysical Corner

In last month’s Geophysical Corner we considered how to improve the seismic resolution of deepwater, near-seafloor geology using P-P data acquired with seafloor-positioned multicomponent sensors. This month we move to part two: We show how P-SV (converted-shear) data acquired with these same sensors provide even greater resolution of deepwater, near-seafloor strata.

“Clean coal” is rapidly becoming more important as energy demands continue to rise. Clean coal is coal that has been stripped of minerals and other impurities. It is then gasified and burned, and resulting flue gases can be treated with steam and re-burned to make CO2 in the flue gas economically recoverable.

Verbal write-offs of the Gulf of Mexico are nothing new; it wasn’t all that long ago that the region was derisively referred to as The Dead Sea. To the surprise of many industry watchers, however, the “dead” region came roaring back to life -- rather quickly -- becoming the locus of an unprecedented level of E&P activity.

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.

This is a less-technical education topic. It can be condensed to an hour or given as 2 two-hour sessions. It stresses selected controversial aspects of fracking that touch some combination of environment and economics and includes a short video of how fracking is done.

VG Abstract

In 1991, Gulf Indonesia and its partners discovered South Sumatra Basin’s first major gas field at Dayung in the Corridor PSC. A key feature of this field is that most of the reserves are held within fractured basement rocks of pre-Tertiary age.
