Tucker Hentz Tucker Hentz gave a talk to a capacity crowd (79 people) at the May 26 luncheon meeting of the Houston Geological Society. The title of his presentation, co-authored by Bill Ambrose, was “Cleveland and Marmaton Tight-Gas Reservoirs (Pennsylvanian), Northwest Anadarko Basin: Sequence Stratigraphy, Depositional Framework, and Production Controls on Tide-Dominated Systems.” The Cleveland Formation tight-gas sandstone is an
active play in the Texas Panhandle part of the Anadarko Basin. Many attendees at the luncheon were from smaller independents (among the most active in the play) and a few majors. The project was conducted under the STARR project.

On May 24–25, Director Scott Tinker hosted a group of leaders from around the country for a roundtable discussion on factors that influence the supply of natural gas in world markets today. The Natural Gas Supply Roundtable, supported by a grant from the Sloan Foundation, comprised participants from industry, government, and academe—William L. Fisher, Svetlana A. Ikonnikova, Robert Bryce, Jesse H. Ausubel, Porter Bennett, John R. Browning, John B. Curtis, Ted Greenwood, John A. Harpole, Ken B. Medlock III, Tony Meggs, Richard Nehring, Tad Patzek, Barry Smitherman, Mark A. Snell, and Charles S. Whitmore. The roundtable had as its aim an examination of factors that impact natural gas supply, infrastructure, economics, and policy.

From June 1st through June 4th the Advanced Energy Consortium (AEC) held its semiannual All Projects Review event at the Schlumberger Doll Research Center in Boston. Over the course of 3 days presenters from the AEC portfolio of 34 funded projects relayed their scientific findings, experimental results, and research plans for the coming months to nearly 160 attendees. Topics included nanomaterial mobility, contrast agents, nanomaterial sensors, and microfabricated sensors. The program comprised not only presentations and panel discussions, but also tours of laboratories at Harvard, Boston, and Northeastern Universities. Member companies and event attendees could visit sites where experiments take place and meet with project investigators, co-project investigators, postdocs, and graduate students at receptions held at each university.
