If recent events in the oil and gas sector, especially as it relates to the fallout and contraction from COVID-19, illustrate anything, it is the need for companies to create resilient businesses and business models. “That means having a business plan that anticipates and can adapt to changing conditions due to evolving environment, societal, and governmental pressures.” That’s Joseph R. Davis, independent direct at BKV Corp, an investment E&P firm. “You can’t separate ESG from sustainability,” he said, “for ESG is how business addresses sustainability.”

Taking fiber optics and downhole sensors to the next stage by creating 3D-printed customized Smart Pipes has the potential to not only make operations more efficient, but to easily convert depleted wells into producers of other energy sources, such as geothermal energy. Welcome to an interview with Alex Finch, part of the team of Tri-D Dynamics. He talks to us about their exciting new smart pipes and RFID (radio-frequency ID) technologies. Tri-D Dynamics will be participating in AAPG’s U-Pitch New Technology Showcase.

AAPG functions because of you, the members, and there are many different ways for you to get involved in your organization. Some choose to start in their local affiliated society, working on committees and holding offices within them. Others get involved through leadership and organizing events within the sections and regions. These are the grassroots of our membership, and AAPG leadership is working to strengthen these roots.

I received my 40-year certificate from AAPG. At the bottom it reads, “In Recognition and Appreciation of your Loyalty to AAPG,” but it is I who should be thanking AAPG for allowing me to be part of this great organization. AAPG allowed me to network and make contacts with smarter people than me and to learn and expand my knowledge base. This is a great profession, and I have found a career in the geological sciences to be extremely rewarding.
