AAPG Division of Environmental Geosciences selects KGS researchers as recipients of the Best Poster award
Brandon Nuttall, recently retired from KGS, and KGS researchers Tom Sparks and Steve Greb received the Best Poster award from the American Association of Petroleum Geologists' Division of Environmental Geosciences for their poster presented at the 2019 AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition held in San Antonio, Texas. Their poster, "Explorations in TOC for Assessment of CO2 Storage and Enhanced Gas Recovery for the Middle Devonian Marcellus and Upper Ordovician Utica Shales for the Midwest Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership," was selected by members of the AAPG Division of Environmental Geosciences executive committee.
According to AAPG, the Best Poster award is given to presenters who received high scores and remarks from the judges. Normally, this award is presented at the DEG luncheon typically held at the AAPG annual convention but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 conference and award announcements have been postponed.
