2000 Digital Petroleum Atlas Annual Report
The world-wide-web and publish as-you-go design of the Digital Petroleum Atlas Project provides immediate and ongoing technology transfer activities. Based on increased usage statistics and informal industry feedback, the DPA model appears to provide an efficient method of technology transfer to the geographically dispersed high technology petroleum industry (Figure 3 and Appendix A). The pages that comprise the DPA are among the most visited on the Kansas Geological Survey web site and usage continues to grow (figures 3-5). Periodic email updates provided to interested operators and individuals have been well received. As part of technology transfer efforts, formal talks and paper were prepared and presented to local and national meetings (Table 1; Buatois, et. al. 1999; Carr and Adkins-Heljeson, 1999; Luchtel and Carr, 1999; Allisa and Carr, 1999). In addition, the Digital Petroleum Atlas Project has been integrated into the Internet for the Petroleum Professional Course. This is a popular course for oil and gas producers and is taught as part of the North Midcontinent part of Petroleum Technology Transfer Council (For example see online version of the Internet course at http://www.kgs.ku.edu/General/Tutorial/Internet/findex.html).
