There is hope

Oil prices surged today, so did oil stock prices. We have been hit by both oil price war and pandemic, but we will come out of it!

Re: Why Schlumberger Is Reducing Its Seismic Survey Fleet

Oil price has fallen to about $60/barrel. Besides its apparent impact on economy in a large scale, it's going to affect geophysicist hiring in two aspects. On one hand, exploration is going to slow down so in the near future geophysicist hiring is also going to slow down. But on the other hand, frac...

Re: UT gets huge grant to study potential game-changing global energy source

From BBC News: And the deposits of these compounds are enormous. "Estimates suggest that there is about the same amount of carbon in methane hydrates as there is in every other organic carbon store on the planet," says Chris Rochelle of the British Geological Survey. In other words, there is more en...

Re: fracknation

The general conclusion (from the published research I have read) seem to be that there are some very real issues, however in most cases they are not a result of the fraccing process itself, but saving money (deep waste water disposal) or cutting corners (well completion failures) I agree with this....

fracknation

I just watched the documentary "fracknation" on Netflix. Although it's apparently pro-fracking, it tells some truths about fracking- at least fracking is not as bad as what some media telling the public. I think fracking practice should still be judged case by case, on earthquake and drinking water ...

Geophysicist investigating Greeley quake’s cause

Does anyone know this story in June have an update yet? "A geophysicist from the University of Colorado is hoping to settle the question of whether a small earthquake last weekend near Greeley was caused by wastewater injection wells." http://www.coloradoan.com/story/news/local/colorado/2014/06/06/g...

As you said, the oceans are vast. Given the speed we currently survey, it can take at least hundreds of years to cover them.

Re: FAQ in an interview: "Tell my about yourself"

If your background doesn't look very strong for the job, probably you should highlight some important things about you for this job. Otherwise after a few seconds they peek at your CV, they will throw it away. In my opinion, the purpose and the only purpose of a CV or resume is to get you an intervi...

You can focus on what's important for the job. You can use your hospital experiences as an example to show you can be trained for any jobs and you are a quick learner. Try to highlight what you've accomplished during this time. Also, you can use your traveling experiences to demonstrate that you enj...

Re: thomas and stieber model

The template should be created by using samples of nearby thick shale zones. One of the assumptions using Thomas-Stieber model is that properties including the resistivity and porosity of nearby thick shale zones are similar to the shale laminae in the zone of interest. If "existing copied template"...
