Dr. Douglas McCarty, former Senior Staff Geologist at Chevron ETC, presents "Clay Minerals, Organic Matter, and NM-scale Pore Systems in Tight Rock Oil and Gas Reservoirs" during this week's Earth Sciences Seminar. This presentation will be held on Thursday, November 8th at 12:15pm in Gaines 243. Coffee will be provided. Seminars are free and open to the public.
"Oil and gas production from tight rock reservoirs with nm-scale pore systems made the United States a net petroleum exporter for the first time. There is an important interplay between surface, electrostatic, and capillary forces and properties of the solid organic matter (OM) and clay minerals in these formations that influence or control oil and gas production."
