GLOBAL ENERGY CHALLENGES AND GEOPHYSICS 

by Dr. Lawrence Millard C. Gochioco

President
GeoNano Technology Corporation

Date: 29 Jan 2011 (Sat)
Time: 10:00-11:00 a.m.
Venue: Faura 318

ABSTRACT

The recent global economic crisis temporarily lessened global demands for energy which could create a misguided mind set that there are no near-term impeding energy crises. When the global economies slowly recover however, energy resource demands will strain the system again as spare capacities are extremely limited. Statistical data will be presented from key reliable sources on the production and consumption of hydrocarbons and renewables sources, coupled with projected future needs to meet the ever increasing energy demands of growing economies in particular Asia.

The role of a physicist/geophysicist is highlighted to address a good portion of the complex energy markets. Career choices and opportunities are also presented to demonstrate the importance of developing and applying innovative and nano technologies across the wide spectrum of the upstream and downstream sectors of the energy fields Students will eventually gain valuable insights into the challenges and opportunities associated with various energy issues.
