Tuesday May 21, 2019 7:15 pm – 9 pm Room 214 A in the San Antonio Convention Center. It is on the Meeting Room level of the convention center. This year we are focusing on how much petroleum comes from come from outside the landing zone / reservoir (and the implications for inventory, spacing, etc.). The first three talks address this issue as well as the problems associated with geochemical techniques that attempt to quantify out-of-zone flow. Alton Brown will follow with a talk that builds on last year’s conversation about pressure generation during petroleum generation and explusion.

Spindletop’s glory days were gone, or so it was believed. That landmark discovery on Jan. 10, 1901 at Spindletop Hill near Beaumont, Texas had defied existing American geological thought and changed the course of history, but had faded into memory by the 1920s. But, a novel geological hypothesis would soon change all that.
