Depletion of existing fossil fuel reservoirs, together with the difficulty and rapidly increasing financial and environmental costs in reaching remaining deep and difficult reservoirs, is causing rising instability in world energy markets. Charles Miller will talk about the existing fossil-fluid energy and currently-available and emerging alternatives. This includes Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking) of shale beds and considers the choices other governments are making and their reasons for doing so. This talk will have been kept updated with new developments.
With over 25 years as a Consultant Engineer involved with oil and gas Drilling and Well Control and has worked in over sixty countries, Charles Miller has explored fossil fluids as well as sustainability of other energy systems being developed and implemented throughout the world and the reasons for or against making a change.
The forthcoming lecture will take place on Wednesday 5 April 2017 in the Dorset County Museum’s Victorian Hall and is FREE to the public; however a donation of £3 encouraged to cover costs. Doors open at 6.30pm and talks start at 7.00pm.
On Wednesday 9th November 2016 at 7.00pm (doors open at 6.30pm). Come and join us for an interesting talk by Dr Julie Richardson
This talk will look at definitions of shale oil and gas, their distribution, the UK potential, and environmental concerns, with possible solutions.
Dr Richardson started off in DPhil in geothermal energy, then joined BP in research looking at histories of sediments. After having a family she had a mixed career, in and out of geosciences. Most recently she has been working on Libyan fields and, after the overthrow of Gaddafi, looking speculatively at the shale oil and gas potential.
Wednesday 9th November 2016 at 7.00pm (The Museum doors open at 6.30pm). The talk is FREE although a donation of £3 is encouraged to cover costs.
