Many oil companies have sponsored this work during different periods. Currently our sponsors include ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil, and Anadarko. Sponsoring companies have access to the consortium data and are invited to participate in core workshops and a coastal fieldtrip which is titled "Modern Depostional Systems of the East Texas Coast: Analogs to Ancient Deposits."

We would also like to thank Lee Krystinik and Mike Boyles, formerly of Union Pacific Resources, and Mark Thomas of Shell for leading students on a field trip in the Book Cliffs in the fall of 1996. Thanks also to John Van Wagoner and Rob Wellner of Exxon Production Research for leading a field trip for students in the fall of 1997, also in the Book Cliffs of Colorado and Utah. (Photos)
