Greening of Oil - Latest from Mac Ackers

RUBBING SHOULDERS WITH AL GORE … In Greening of Oil’s quest to determine how “clean” coal can get, our reporter’s trail took her to Saskatchewan, Canada, to Dr. Malcolm Wilson, an expert in carbon capture and storage technology at the University of Regina.

Quoted in Rose Ragsdale’s article, “N.D. power co-op leads CCS race,” Wilson was a lead member of the United Nations’ climate change group, which was a co-recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize awarded former U.S. Vice-President Al Gore.

JOURNALISM NOT DEAD … Kudos to the University of Northern Colorado’s student newspaper, The Mirror, which takes a realistic look at the survival of print news in the article, “Reports of news writing’s death largely exaggerated.” (It graciously mentions Greening of Oil.)

BEAT US TO THE PUNCH … The Calgary Herald beat us to the punch with a Jan. 23 story about Canadian Mat Systems FiberCon rig mats being used deep in Brazil’s Amazon region. It’s a good read: “Edmonton mat system welcome in fragile terrain.” Who knew rig mats could be so exotic?

NORTH SLOPE JOB HUNTERS … If you are looking for a high paying job in the oil industry on Alaska’s North Slope, check out Mary Whitehurst’s comment (and Web site) on Greening of Oil’s Buzz page at http://www.greeningofoil.com/buzz.aspx.
