On the cover: What in the world is going on? This month’s EXPLORER, our annual World Developments issue, provides a glimpse into the 2006 success stories that highlighted a year of several important finds – including those shown on the cover. The two top photos are scenes from the Wenchang oil field in the South China Sea, and the larger image is the Jack Bates semisubmersible rig used to drill the Clio-1 well in offshore northwestern Australia.

Photos courtesy of Husky Energy (Wenchang) and Chevron (Clio-1).
