The ConocoPhillips Center for a Sustainable We2st is hosting a special lecture with Greg Lackey. Lackey will be presenting "Surface Casing Pressure as an Indicator of Well Integrity Loss and Stray Gas Migration in Colorado." Abstract: Faulty oil and gas wells, with compromised structural integrity, allow for the unwanted vertical migration of hydrocarbons along the wellbore. These fugitive hydrocarbons collect at the wellhead and build a pressure in the outermost annulus of the well that we refer to as surface…

 “Scalable seismic monitoring with fiber optics beneath our feet” Eileen Martin, Ph.D. Candidate, Geophysics Department at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory   Continuously recording, dense seismic arrays could help us better understand earthquake and landslide hazards, permafrost thaw, our hydrological cycle, and near surface changes at energy production sites. But such arrays have typically been expensive to maintain long-term and are logistically difficult to install in populated areas. We combine two methods to make continuous subsurface monitoring significantly cheaper: estimating wave equation…

 “Advanced imaging for practitioners” Dr. William W. Symes, Rice University, Houston, TX   Seismic migration has been a core geophysical technology for more than 50 years and continues to evolve in its capacity to reveal detailed quantitative information about the sedimentary earth. Integration of ever more accurate and complete seismic wave physics, more precise numerical methods, and rapidly improving computer hardware and software environments have made formerly “advanced” methods such as prestack reverse time migration (RTM) relatively routine.

 “Earth’s Rock and Roll: Understanding rotational ground motions” Dr. Heiner Igel, Professor of Seismology, Department of Earth Sciences, Ludwig-Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Germany When the ground shakes from earthquakes, the oceans, or the atmosphere, it not only translates (up-down, sideways), but also undergoes rotational motions. To fully characterize seismic sources and wave fields theoreticians have insisted for decades that these motions should also be measured. However, this was hampered by the substantial technical difficulties in observing rotational motions with the necessary sensitivity.…

Reactive sulfur species, such as H2S and sulfane-sulfur compounds, play key roles in different (patho)physiological processes. In addition, these small molecules are also key targets for new donor motifs that function both as important research tools and pharmacological agents. Aligned with this importance, our lab has recently developed a palette of new donor motifs, including H2S- and persulfide-releasing molecules. In addition, we have also recently developed new donor strategies that release carbonyl sulfide (COS), which is quickly converted to H2S…
