An exciting exploration play -- based on a new interpretation and good ol' geologic detective work -- is gathering momentum in the Tucumcari Basin of eastern New Mexico.

Seeing (more) is believing (way more): Laser technology and cutting-edge computers are providing stunning -- and increasingly useful -- 3-D outcrop images.

Hierarchical knowledge management? Take all the 3-D seismic, the explosion of processing techniques apply these to today’s exploration and production projects and this proliferation of data raises the question ... what to do with it?

Has your computer been bitten by the virus bug? Many have -- but here's some things you can do to help build your own personal computer security system.
