What the
Oil is Thinking

The Prospect and the Prospector

I met a man who had been an engineer in the army in Iraq during the first Gulf War. He then spent 15 years prospecting for oil from Nigeria to Alaska. He told me which geology journals to look for in the British Library and how with sound imaging they could look inside the earth and make amazing pictures of its strata and faults.
