Petroleum exploration is not the most politically popular activity with some people these days, due to the burning of fossil fuels; a major factor in climate change and sea level rise. However, what is frequently overlooked is that while we must develop 'low carbon' economies, it cannot be done overnight. Join Dr Mark Lawrence in looking at petroleum formation and the challenges of finding and extracting oil and gas.

This talk is in collaboration with Lower Hutt Cafe Scientifique. The Sources of Our Resources is a series of science seminars from GNS Science to inform, educate and raise awareness of New Zealand’s unique natural resources. GNS scientists will offer insights into the latest research and the challenges and issues around their use and exploitation.

Come along and ask questions to initiate an informed dialogue on where these resources are found and how they will be managed and cared for in years to come.

For more information on upcoming talks in this series see Hutt City Libraries website.
