U.T. to core methane hydrates
in GC 955 in 2017

In Spring 2017, the University of Texas (UT Austin) will drill two research wells in Green Canyon Block 955 (GC 955) to core and log methane hydrate trapped within channel margin levees that are approximately 1350 feet below the seafloor (Fig. 1). The program will acquire and analyze pressurized cores to study the potential of methane hydrates as an energy resource. UT Austin invites interested parties to participate in this operation (see attached).

Beginning with the 2012 Annual Convention in Austin, Texas, the GCAGS will publish a yearly collection of formally peer-reviewed articles in a new GCAGS Journal Series: Gulf Coast Geology.

The Journal series will focus on all geoscientific aspects of the greater Gulf of Mexico region. A hardbound journal will be produced each year in concert with the traditional GCAGS Transactions volume, and both will be distributed at the yearly convention. An editorial board, which will serve for a 3-year term, will oversee the review process.

Each Journal volume will consist of 10 to 20 articles selected by an editorial board from among the extended abstracts submitted specifically for the Journal each year. The volume will also contain invited papers. Like Transactions contributors, authors of journal articles will make either an oral or poster presentation at the annual convention.
