Unconventional Sources of Oil & Natural Gas: Implications for Energy Use in the Future

Thursday, March 29th at 7SciTalk: Oil Sourcespm ScienceWorks welcomes Len Eisenberg, local geologist of Ashland, Oregon, formerly with Chevron Overseas exploration and production.  Len will discuss exploration for oil and natural gas in new and unconventional settings, such as natural gas from hydrofractured shales, gas hydrates, deep water and sub- and pre-salt environments.  These new sources could introduce large amounts of oil, and especially natural gas, into the market for energy.  The effects on more environmentally friendly energy sources such as wind and solar, could be profound.  Decisions on how to deal with these developments will be the source of discussion after the formal presentation.
 
Len Eisenberg is a former international petroleum geologist who lives and works in Ashland, Oregon.  Len lead the effort to build the Briscoe Geology Park and the Climb through Time geologic climbing wall at ScienceWorks.  He also will help build a geologic history walk at the new Oregon Hills Park in Medford.  His current research focuses on unusual flood deposits in the 200-million-year-old Navajo Sandstone of central Utah.
