Sequence stratigraphy is an evolving field that has thus defied all attempts at formalization. Part of this resistance to stability is because central assumptions core to the science maintain scrutiny and occasionally undergo either modification or full refute.

The past 30+ years have witnessed a wide variety of exploration strategies and a number of technological “revolutions” in the search for oil and gas. Although the exploration landscape and tools of the trade are so different than they were in the early 1980’s, in one aspect we appear to have come full circle, realizing that a deep understanding of our basins is the critical element in any success.

The New Madid seismic zone (NMSZ) is the second highest risk area for earthquake hazard in the United States. Its fame arises from a cluster of at least three great earthquakes during the winter of 1811/1812 that shook most of the North American continent. A repeat of these earthquakes would deeply impact the mid-continent region and potentially be devastating to the nearby cities of St. Louis and Memphis.

There’s little that’s conventional about this year’s UnconventionalResources Technology Conference URTeC), slated this year for a newlocation and boasting a technical program that is cutting edge in content and expertise. URTeC 2015 will be held July 20-22 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio.
