Geoscientists have more opportunities than ever to make working with drones and drone data part of their skill set and services rendered. But, there are often a number of misconceptions, especially when getting started. Welcome to an interview with Michael Nash, who provides a reality check about drones and drone capabilities.

Please note that the drones references are the small drones used by the general public, and are not the large UAVs used by the military and other entities.

Petroleum Economics is one of the "must know" areas of the petroleum industry which can have a great impact on the professional success of geoscientists and engineers. Larry Chorn, Ph.D., a well-respected expert in petroleum economics talks to us today about his experience in the industry and how and why petroleum economics matters now more than ever.

The goal of this workshop is to review mature fields and to identify the amount and nature of oil that can be recovered, and to evaluate competing strategies for economically producing the remaining reserves. In addition to looking closely at fields, we will review new and improved technologies that may help revitalize reservoirs and overcome problems such as low pressure, paraffin, corrosion, and more. We will identify companies willing to offer a “no money down” approach, or other forms of innovative financing. In addition to reviewing the technology, we will review case studies.
