Check Out Art Berman on This Week in Energy, Wednesday 17:00 UTC

One of the ideas we have been tossing around here at The Oil Drum for a couple of years was the prospect of a world-reaching, web-based weekly (and archived) energy-focused show that took advantage of live chat, call-ins and other interactive capabilities available with the web--the problem was that no one around here really had the means, wherewithal, or the technical chops to execute it to our standards on a weekly basis.

Well, someone's started one, and from what I have seen thus far it has a lot of potential. It's called "This Week in Energy." The show is hosted by Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield and Bob Tregilus. The TWiEpodcast streams live each Wednesday at 17:00 UTC (10:00am PDT & 1:00pm EDT) and runs for 90 minutes. Here is the link if you want to watch it live and/or participate in the live chat: Watch Live.

This week the featured guest will be The Oil Drum's own Art Berman; Art will be talking L/CNG, the natural gas business, peak oil, and all sorts of other related topics. Art is a geological consultant with thirty-one years of experience in petroleum exploration and production and is a specialist in prospect and play evaluation, reserve assessment, risk evaluation, subsurface geological and geophysical interpretation, and database management, so it should be quite a show.

We are very excited to work with the folks at TWiE now and in the future, and we hope you too will support their efforts. TWiE is on twitter at @twiepodcast, Nikki's handle is @aminorjourney and Bob can be found at @bobtregilus (and don't forget, The Oil Drum can be found at @theoildrum).

Make sure you get your chat in before memmel. Go Mike ;-)

Special thanks to The Oil Drum for providing This Week in Energy (TWiEpodcast) with an amazing guest: Art Berman! The archived edition of TWiEpodcast, episode 17, Got Gas?, should be posted at our website no later than 18:00 UTC on March 25th.

We look forward to having other editors and contributors from The Oil Drum on future TWiEpodcast shows where we discuss the past, present and future of energy.

Hitch a ride with Nikki (in the UK) & Bob (in the USA), every Wednesday at 18:00 UTC, as they unplug their electric car [okay, plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV)] and take a ride down the the smart-grid superhighway! ;>)

Update 20:43 UTC (1:38pm PDT):

We're sorry for the delay. Nikki had some issues with encoding the video portion of the show and on top of that has a stomach flu. She says the show should be posted soon...We're really sorry for the delay and any inconvenience this might be causing.
