The role of physicists can be crucial in the oil and gas industry, especially in a world where “easy oil” no longer exist. A number of aspects of hydrocarbon exploration and production will be discussed in which physicists play an important role, specifically in the fields of petrophysics and geomechanics. Examples are applications of logging tools that measure natural gamma ray emissions, neutron absorption, and formation fracture pressures.

This talk is part of the Surfaces, Microstructure and Fracture Group series.
