We would all like to wish Marianna the best, as she starts her maternity leave! We shall all miss her, and can’t wait to meet the new addition to her family……..Good luck from us all, Marianna!
Julie Dewit is flying out to speak at the conference. The aim of our presentation is to present an up-to-date review and provide valuable insights into the carbonate plays of the circum-Adriatic area, with a strong focus on exploration-related issues.
The presentation is aimed at both Industry personnel and academics alike, and will provide an excellent regional context in which to understand the future potential of these carbonate reservoirs.
Thanks to everyone; staff, clients, sub-contractors and students who have worked with us. Happy Birthday
This month, Benoit had an article published in Sedimentary Geology – the article is entitled “High resolution ion microprobe investigation of the δ18O of carbonate cements (Jurassic, Paris Basin, France): New insights and pending questions” – please feel free to download the attached copy for your reference.
Congratulations from everyone at Cambridge Carbonates to Marianna and Luke on the safe arrival of baby Elias! We can’t wait to meet him!
AAPG have recently published Jo and Andy’s presentation from the Bahrain conference last year as part of their Search and Discovery Series. The presentation, entitled “Underexplored Opportunities in the Arabian Plate: Application of Global Analogues” can be downloaded here.
The 2017 Mountjoy Conference, sponsored by SEPM and CSPG, will be held at the University of Texas Learning Commons and the Texas Bureau of Economic Geology core facilities. The Conference will showcase new approaches and results through oral and poster sessions as well as core workshops and selected fieldtrips.
Congratulations to both Francis and Benoit, who have had their abstracts accepted for the upcoming Mountjoy meeting in Austin in July 2017.
In the week leading up to Easter, Jen set us all at CCL a task - an exciting Easter Egg Hunt! Solve the clues, and find the most Easter Eggs!
Julie found the most eggs and Shaun was the overall winner for finding the surprise egg with a T-rex in it! Great fun!
On 16th May, Benoit will be presenting at the Finding Petroleum meeting at the Geol Soc. In London. He will be presenting on fractured carbonates: http://www.findingpetroleum.com/event/Finding-Petroleum-Opportunities-In-The-Middle-East/a46c4.aspx
We are pleased to announce that Cambridge Carbonates will soon have a permanent presence in Norway! Julie Dewit will be moving to Oslo in October, and will be our main contact for all our new Norwegian work.
In October, Cambridge Carbonates will be presenting and chairing sessions at several conferences:
We look forward to seeing everyone there!
Andy Horbury has just completed the chapter on Mesozoic reservoirs entitled ‘The Amazing Carbonate Plays’ for the forthcoming book, to be published by Pennwell under the auspices of Sierra Oil, titled ‘History of Oil Exploration in Mexico’ (Ivan Sandrea et al.).
Everyone at Cambridge Carbonates would like to wish all our clients and friends a Happy New Year!!! Here’s to a happy, healthy and prosperous 2018.
Jo and Andy will be taking part in the “Understanding Fractured Reservoirs & Rocks” meeting at the Geological Society in London on Tuesday 23rd January. Jo is presenting on “Natural Fracture Systems in Carbonate Reservoirs” and we will also have an exhibition stand where we can discuss carbonates! We hope to see you there!
Congratulations to Jenny and Simon on the safe arrival of their beautiful baby girl, Robyn. Robyn arrived into the World on January 3rd, weighing a healthy 8lb 9.5oz.
Happy 60th birthday to Peter one of the co-founders of CCL.
This month saw National Science Week, and as part of our science outreach, Jo ran mini dinosaur and fossil workshops for the Reception classes at St Alphege Infants School! The kids had great fun identifying fossils and were each given an ammonite and fossils sharks tooth to take home..... let’s hope there are some new geologists in the making!
