Home > Press > Oil Industry Jumps the Curve with Nanotechnology

Abstract:
In 2003, I wrote the book, The Next Big Thing is Really Small: How Nanotechnology Will Change the Future of Your Business. Far from being a wide-eyed look at many of the truly futuristic applications of nanotechnology (of which there, in fact, quite a few), the book took a hard-headed, realistic view of how a variety of industries could employ nanotechnology to improve their existing business in the near term. One of the applications I dedicated a good amount of time to in the book was nanosensors.

Well, it has taken the oil and gas industry almost five years to get the message, but earlier this month it was announced that the Advanced Energy Consortium -- which consists of seven prominent oil companies—will be investing $21 million over the next three years to explore how nanosensors can help the industry squeeze more oil from its existing reservoirs. It is money well spent.
