Database provides information on petroleum reservoirs, type and abundance of constituents dissolved in produced water, geochemical reactions between the water and rock, hydrology and geologic, spatial distribution of petroleum production areas.
PDF Recent trends in Cuba's mining and petroleum industries [More info]
Mines, mineral processing facilities, and petroleum facilities as well as information on location, operational status, and ownership in Cuba, as well as current status of known mineral industry projects and trends in the industry there.
PDF Remaining recoverable petroleum in giant oil fields of the Los Angeles Basin, southern California [More info]
We estimated between 3.2 and 5.6 billion barrels of additional oil may be recovered with existing technology in this area using a probabilistic geology-based assessment methodology.
Scientists discover analog for extraterrestrial life in Idaho Hot Springs [More info]
Report on a community of microscopic organisms, Archaea, found deep in an Idaho hot spring living on hydrogen and carbon dioxide that could possibly exist on other planets. Includes links to related studies, investigators, and microbiology.
PDF Thermal Properties of Methane Gas Hydrates [More info]
This unusual form of hydrocarbons can alter the thermal properties of host sediments; the analysis presented here helps us understand how those sediments might behave under natural or human-induced changes in the environment.
