  • Drilling activity off the California coast is discussed. The Point Arguello field is scheduled to begin production before the end of next year, bringing on stream a major source of new oil off California. Chevron, the field's discoverer in 1981, has made significant progress toward this goal. Late last year, the California Coastal Commissions unanimously approved the company's Platform Hidalgo development plan, finding it consistent with environmental and other provisions of the state Coastal Management Program. The action followed earlier approval of Hermosa, the field's first platform, which is scheduled for installation this summer.
  • A list of Goldsmith's producing zones reads like a correlation chart of Permian Basin geologic strata. After locating the largest pay in the San Andres (4300 ft), operator found pools in the Clearfork (6300 ft), Fusselman (7760 ft), Devonian (7875 ft), and Ellenburger (9500 ft). When the field was being drilled, operators may have wondered if they would ever reach the bottom. Within the Clearfork sequence, they found a zone above the usual pay interval that was named the 5600 because of its depth, a more prolific formation than any except the San Andres. Another zone found between more familiarmore » pays was the Holt, located just above the Glorieta, which is usually the zone right below the San Andres. Altogether, the Texas Railroad Commission identifies 32 distinct fields in the Goldsmith Complex, discovered between 1935 (the San Andres) and 1972 (the most recent new zone). Now it seems that operators will never find the end of new ways to make all these pay zones produce more oil. Extended production is being obtained by waterflooding and infill drilling.« less
  • Resources, business aspects, and programs to develop biomass plantations for fuel production are summarized in the article. The Electric Power Research Institute estimates the available supply of wood and agricultural wastes is sufficient to generation up to 10,000 megawatts of power. Although biomass fuels are more expensive than fossil fuels, they produce less sulfur dioxide emissions, reduce carbon dioxide while growing, use simple technology, and provide an economic boost to rural areas. Programs briefly outlined include public utility cofiring with wood waste, US Department of Energy projects, gasification/combined-cycle processing, and fast pyrolysis.

  • All representations presently being used in analyses of nucleon-nucleon scattering above the inelastic threshold are flawed by lack of implicit unitarity, generality, or failure to encode reasonable physical behavior. We examine unitarity from the point of view of an extended K matrix, and derive a representation which is unitary, general, and which uses physically interpretable, bounded parameters.
