We all have to think about how we can reduce our carbon footprint. Working in the oil and gas industry does make you think about our long term effects on climate change. 

Solar panels installed in 2009 to offset the electricity consumed by our hardware have now generated over 60,000 kW. So on a sunny day the system can be used to process seismic data and still export electricity to the grid.

I recommend that everyone should read “Silent Spring” by Rachel Carson. Once you have read this book you can thank yourself that you were in the oil and gas industry and not the chemical fertilizer, pesticide or insecticide industry.

We are fortunate to have carbon sequestration from over 500 trees and 6 acres of rough grassland. A mini-rewilding project still in its infancy. Although no where near as comprehensive as Knepp it is a step in the right direction.
