Seismic Helps Discover Largest Natural Gas Resource Ever Examined


​Estimates of the Haynesville and Bossier formations are estimated to contain more than four times the amount of natural gas originally thought to be in that area in 2010. 


“It’s amazing what a little more knowledge can yield,” said USGS scientist Stan Paxton, lead author of the assessment. “Since the 2010 assessment, we’ve gotten updated geologic maps, expanded production history and have a greater understanding of how these reservoirs evolved.

Could You Survive Living
in the Dark Ages?

Beyond the technology behind your computers and cell phones, oil & gas products are used in making the electronics themselves. Without the industry, life would revert to the dark ages!
It Takes Gas,
Plane and Simple

You know oil and gas are essential to fuel your vehicle and transport systems, but these products are crucial to building those vehicles in the first place.

TAKE THE CRUDE AWAKENINGS CHALLENGE

We want to challenge your assumptions about oil and gas and urge you to chronicle what you learn.

We all know that we use oil and gas to run our cars and heat our homes.  But did you know oil and gas products are also used in life-saving medical devices and in more than 6,000 products in our homes?

Environmental Activist campaigns like the Keep it in the Ground movement encourage governments to keep the world's remaining fossil fuels in the ground. But what impact would this have on your everyday life beyond the resources needed to power your home and fuel your vehicles?

We urge you to learn about the crucial role oil and gas plays in our daily lives and the technology that starts the entire process, and challenge any assumptions you may have about the oil and gas industry. Then share what you discovered. 

Follow us on Twitter at @CrudeAwakenings or on Facebook at @CrudeAwakeningsChallenge. Then share how your oil and gas assumptions have been challenged at #CrudeAwakeningsChallenge! 

Be sure to tell us what you discovered during the week of March 5-9 2018
