THE guest speaker at last week’s meeting of Brechin Rotary Club held in the Caledonian Hotel, was Mark Reynolds, who was invited by club member Ron Stewart.

He gave an in depth look into his work as a geologist involved in the world of petro physics.

Mark lives in Brechin and is based in Aberdeen, but is involved in projects worldwide, especially in the West African country of Cote d’Ivoire.

He gave a detailed and fascinating look at just exactly what an oilfield geologist does in helping to find oil, and more importantly to make sure it can be extracted profitably.

In his talk, Mark explained the finer points of vertically exaggerated regional seismic lines, gamma ray logging, and gas oil contact reflection technology.

While not all the members were conversant with some of these technicalities, they appreciated hearing Mark, an expert in his field – someone who was able to put over the complexities of his industry in an understandable manner.

Mark was given a vote of thanks by club member Jim Houston, who commented on how impressed he was with the equipment, the expertise and the teamwork revealed in the presentation that goes into the business of keeping our fuel tanks full.
