Thank You!

Ben Burke provided an interesting and informative June Technical Luncheon on Geology.  His presentation gave an excellent history of the formation of the DJ Basin, as well as insight on what geologists actually do in the O&G world (a complete mystery for most of us!).  We greatly appreciate Dr. Burke taking the time to present to WOGA!
