On Wednesday November 25th
in Academic Priority Time, Mr Matthew Evans spoke to a crowd of about sixty in
the Coffee Shop on his career in the corporate oil industry. Mr Evans
explained, in detail, the processes that one has to go through in order to
extract oil. He explained that you can use all of the technology that you can
to try to detect oil, but you never can be sure that you will find anything
until you drill into the earth. In fact, only two in three drilling sites
actually find hydrocarbons.
To conclude his talk, Mr
Evans talked about the profit making side of hydrocarbon extraction to bring a
fascinating talk to an end.
