Durham Energy Institute Director speaker at AAPG Luncheon
(16 August 2011)
Professor Richard Davies, Director of Durham Energy Institute, is to give a talk at the high profile American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) annual conference in Milan in October 2011.
The talk, part of the AAPG Luncheon Series, is entitled "The oil and gas industry: fairly dragged through the mud". It will look at the role of academia as a potential independent source of expertise and will review two case studies: the trigger for the Lusi mud volcano in Indonesia and the potential for contamination of aquifers with methane as a result of shale gas operations in Pennsylvania.
