Organic-rich and carbonate-rich Eagle Ford Shale is a self-sourced oil and gas reservoir with little alteration of gas chemistry as might be affected by petroleum expulsion and migration. As such it provides an ideal natural laboratory to quantify the compositional variation of gases generated from oil-prone type II kerogen during thermal maturation.

“I was always looking for a deal where I could get some slice of the pie.” That’s AAPG Emeritus Member Terry Mather, this year’s Norman H. Foster Outstanding Explorer Award winner, talking about motivation, talking about his life in exploration (specifically wildcatting), talking about the excitement, and talking about – at times – the letdown, where there wasn’t a slice of the pie.
