In an advance summary of his comments, Green said, “The coming changes in the global energy balance have political, environmental, economic, and security implications … recognizing and facing energy realities, learning from history, and developing an integrated plan is critical for an industry that requires lead times of 10 to 15 years.”

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 1, 2005) -- Arthur R. Green, who retired in 2003 as the chief geoscientist for ExxonMobil Exploration Company, is scheduled to speak at 7 p.m. April 6 at the University of Kentucky campus about “Global Energy – The Next Decade and Beyond.”

He will speak in the Mining and Minerals Resources Building on Rose Street as part of a national lecture series sponsored by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists. The lecture is free and open to the public. Free parking will be available in Parking Structure #2, next to the Mining and Minerals Resources Building.

Green’s experience in the field of petroleum geology began in 1962, when he worked as a well-site geologist with the Humble Oil Company of Houston. He received a master’s degree in geology from the University of Oregon in 1962, has authored many geologic studies, and has published papers about the evolution of the Earth’s crust.

His talk comes as oil prices reach record levels, oil-rich regions have experienced political and military upheavals, and the worldwide appetite for energy continues to escalate. In an advance summary of his comments, Green said, “The coming changes in the global energy balance have political, environmental, economic, and security implications … recognizing and facing energy realities, learning from history, and developing an integrated plan is critical for an industry that requires lead times of 10 to 15 years.”

Green’s UK visit is sponsored by the KGS and the Kentucky Society of Professional Geologists.
