Well, one thing is for sure: I will neither register nor post anything on THAT site! Sounds like "Arbeit macht frei", but first you will have a quick shower...
These guys are not known for their particularly high ethical standards when going about with their business.

OK, it seem to be well funded and they seem to intend to make a lot of noise in TV and elsewhere. It IS terribly interesting and clearly a breach with everything previously said and done by ANY big corporation. I arrive at two immediate comments:
1) Will they also get to feeling the force of Denial? I guess they will. This is really an acid-test for the Denial Theory (which I happen to nurture close to my heart).
2) Wait a minute - are THEY asking US for help??!! I always thought that some experts would provide handy solutions to this PO mess. Does this mean that they ALSO are completely clueless? [/irony]

I broached the subject once in 2001 and the discussion lasted all 10-15 minutes. Then we went on to build a reservoir geologic model. In other words it was not something high on our agenda. WORK was.
