    • Persistent Geo-Blunder Discovered: Huge Boost For Oil And Gas Exploration (Oil and Gas Online)- March 29, 2010
    • San Diego, CA - For decades, an unsuspected geological blunder has limited crucial technical understanding of how, where and why petroleum and natural gas deposits form. Exposing and correcting that vital mistake offer the promise of new insights and potentially vast new energy-resource discoveries. Since the 1930s, the idea of mantle convection has been inextricably rooted in common geological interpretations of the Earth's dynamics. In a paper just published in the March 25, 2010 issue of Curr... More...
    • India to launch rocket with own engine technology in a month (The Economic Times)- March 26, 2010
    • BANGALORE: India is set to launch in a month its powerful rocket with the homemade cryogenic engine to propel a satellite into a geosynchronous orbit and become only the sixth nation to develop this complex engine. The much awaited launch has been billed as a landmark event for the country's space programme after its maiden unmanned moon mission Chandrayaan-I in 2008. India had been using Russia-made cryogenic engines so far for satellite launchings. A cryogenic engine will be used for the first... More...
    • Large Hadron Collider Breaks Energy Record—By 300% (National Geographic)- March 19, 2010
    • The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) set a new energy record this morning, tripling its former peak performance. In doing so, the "big bang machine" took an important step toward full-power operation. At 5:20 a.m., local time, in Geneva, Switzerland, physicists sent two proton beams racing around the Large Hadron Collider's oval-shaped, 17-mile-long (27-kilometer-long) underground tunnel. Each beam packed a powerful 3.5-trillion-electron-volt (TeV) punch—the highest energy yet achieved in a particl... More...
    • Taking steam out of the oilsands (CBC News)- March 18, 2010
    • A new technology being developed by a Calgary company could address one of the biggest problems of the oilsands: high water usage. Petrobank Energy and Resources' process recently passed a significant hurdle, validating a technology its backers say will not only get out more oil, but also have a smaller environmental footprint. Petrobank's Whitesands underground combustion pilot project near Conklin, Alberta, south of Fort McMurray.(Petrobank Energy and Resources) Last week, independent engineer... More...
    • US producer prices fall as energy costs drop (BBC News)- March 17, 2010
    • US producer prices - the wholesale price of goods leaving the factory gate - fell by more than expected in February, official figures have shown.The seasonally adjusted index for producer prices fell 0.6% in February, the biggest fall since July. The fall was attributed by the US Labor Department to a 2.9% drop in energy costs. Analysts said the figures indicated that there were few inflationary pressures in the economy. Stripping out energy and food costs, core producer prices rose by 0.1% n Fe... More...
