Explorer President’s Column

January’s President’s Column in the EXPLORER covered creative and collaborative space in exploration to “recycle” or revitalize petroleum basins for an economic industry. February’s column discussed development and enhanced oil recovery to maximize recovery of reserves for an optimized industry. This month’s column, in turn, addresses the third, and an increasingly important aspect of sustainable petroleum development: carbon capture, use and storage for a viable industry.
