Guest Speaker: Denise M. Cox

Denise Cox is President of Storm Energy, Ltd. (USA) where she is responsible for evaluating projects and partnerships for the company’s oil and gas portfolio. Ms. Cox began her petroleum geoscience career with Marathon Oil Company at the Denver Research Center. During her 20-year career in Marathon’s research, production, and exploration offices she specialised in the application of new technology to carbonate petroleum reservoirs and later the evaluation and development of unconventional reservoirs. She is currently interested in sustainable development and data analytics to maximise recovery of reserves in new and old fields.

Denise Cox received her B.S. with Honours from Binghamton University and M.S. from the University of Colorado. She is an AAPG Certified Petroleum Geologist and licensed geologist in Wyoming. Ms. Cox is President of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists and Past-President of the Association for Women Geoscientists. She has held leadership positions on numerous geological society committees where she is best known as a geoscience “connector” and for her outreach activities with students, young professionals, and women.

Joint SPE-PESA SA/NT March Technical Luncheon

The Role of Geoscience in Sustainable Energy Development – “Recycling” Petroleum Basins

When: Thursday 14th March, 12pm for 12:30

Where:Ayers House, 288 North Terrace, Adelaide SA

Speaker: Denise M. Cox (AAPG President; Storm Energy)

In petroleum systems, sustainability can be viewed in terms of a petroleum basin’s diverse resource and potential to be productive indefinitely, dependent on the geology and application of technology. By communicating the environmental, economic, and social contributions of the petroleum industry along with the technical aspects of development we can better advocate for the role the petroleum industry plays in sustainable energy solutions.

In the Permian Basin of West Texas, USA, historical knowledge of the play concepts, enhanced recovery methods, and drilling technology illustrate how data and analytics can be used to learn from a petroleum basin’s past, understand the value of current development, and make projections about future potential. Knowledge of the raw data, ability to formulate insightful questions, and the experience to evaluate the answers are fundamental parts of petroleum data and analytics. It is the diverse perspectives and creativity of geoscientists in concert with engineering and technological advances that ultimately can create value.
