Student Fellowships

FRAC graduate students Magdalena Ellis, Peter Hargrove, and Juan Inigo are recipients of fellowships from the GDL Foundation for their research on the structural diagenesis of petroleum reservoirs and reservoir analogs. Other Fall 2007 fellowship recipients in this competition are from Yale, Harvard, and Stanford. Ellis and Hargrove study fractures in tight gas sandstone analogs in Scotland and in cores from the western United States. Inigo is working on fractured sandstones in Bolivia.01/29/08

Laubach Elected to Petroleum Group Committee of GSL

In late December Steve Laubach was elected to the Petroleum Group Committee of the Geological Society of London, which, among other things, sponsors GSL’s petroleum-related conferences and publications (some in collaboration with AAPG and SPE). Although Steve will be appearing in person for a committee meeting in February in London, he’ll be able to participate in most committee activities via conference call. Congratulations, Steve! 01/07/08
