1 Where can you learn about the latest Bureau research, hear from great speakers, mingle with guests from companies and agencies large and small, and have Texas barbecue among the rocks of one of the largest core collections in the world? Nowhere else but the Bureau's Industry Day! This year's event, "Discovering the Bureau: Energy, Economics, and the Environment", was held on April 11 in the Core Research Center. Sixty-five guests from 33 companies and eight state agencies experienced firsthand the breadth of BEG research by talking to Bureau researchers and students at 38 research posters featuring everything from new findings in carbon capture and storage to pore structures in shale plays. Guest speakers Scott Anderson of the Environmental Defense Fund and Peter Duncan of MicroSeismic presented new information in their respective fields which was of great interest to attendees. Director Scott Tinker's luncheon keynote highlighted the many important Bureau-industry partnerships. Associate director Eric Potter was also able to unveil plans for a new West Texas Resource Initiative to an interested crowd during Industry Day's special session. The annual event accomplished its goal of informing a broad spectrum of industry and agency representatives about new ways to engage with the Bureau.
