Could a single plant species have really changed the Earth from a greenhouse world towards the modern icehouse state – and what are the implications of this for both petroleum exploration and climate change?
Young geoscientists need resilience to succeed in their studies during these difficult times. Kirsty Lewis, a recent graduate of the Masters programme at Aberdeen University, explains the challenges she faced and overcame to obtain her MSc and a job with an oil company.

Many may argue about the best use for Artificial Intelligence: is it in the exploration or the development of oil and gas resources? This article illustrates with case studies that AI sits comfortably in both, and forms a bridge between the two, allowing interpretation continuity.
GeoStreamer X, a faster, smarter acquisition and subsurface imaging solution, reveals greater hydrocarbon potential in the Viking Graben by illuminating complex geological targets, with a significantly reduced environmental footprint.
A geologist turned reservoir engineer makes a plea to fellow reservoir engineers to use all the tools at their disposal, including studying 3D visualisations to better understand hydrocarbon reservoir simulations.
2D and 3D seismic data are major sources of information in the oil and gas industry, as well as for geothermal energy activities, carbon sequestration in geological reservoirs and offshore wind energy. In this short article we will cover the basics of seismic horizon interpretation and how this is used to obtain stratigraphic information.
