For the eleventh consecutive year, H-M Oil Company hosted a group of graduate students from the Nicholas School of the Environment (Duke University) at the Garrett-Cole Lease (Brookshire Dome) in Waller County, Texas. The Division of Ocean and Earth Sciences of the Nicholas School sponsors an annual field trip to the Houston area where the students tour several energy museums and exhibits, go to refining facilities and R&D centers, and hear a series of lectures ranging from energy geo-politics to unconventional oil sands. The trip out to the Brookshire field is designed to show the graduate students the “other side” of the oil business, focusing on the contrast between a small, independent oil producer and the fully integrated major oil companies. Seeing the “old school” production facilities and hearing from oilmen who measure their use of modern oilfield technology on a strict cost-reward analysis offer a tremendous visual contrast to the hi-tech facilities the students are exposed to in the rest of their field trip. Additionally, the students engage in discussions with H-M’s principals about the independent oilman’s state-of-mind and point-of-view on a broad range of topics, e.g., government regulation, environmental issues, product pricing, etc.
