Join Dr. Bernie Bernard, TDI-Brooks’ VP/Technology Director, as he presents on “Near-surface Hydrocarbons as Indicators of Subsurface Petroleum Generation and Entrapment: The Evolution of Sample Collection, Analysis, and Interpretation” at the upcoming Hedberg Conference. The conference will be held on March 4-6, 2019 in Houston Texas at the Norris Conference Center with the primary title of “The Evolution of Petroleum Systems Analysis: Changing of the Guard from Late Mature Experts to Peak Generating Staff“.
This Hedberg research conference will focus on the changes in petroleum systems analysis from the late 1970’s to current day. The goal of this conference is to be a “passing of the torch” with an exchange of ideas from experienced specialists to young professionals. The attendees will be a mix of seasoned experts with a depth of knowledge and historical perspective, and exploration and development petroleum systems staff on the learning curve. The last 30 plus years have seen tremendous change in the methods and technology applied on the analysis and evaluation of geochemistry data and on the building and evaluation of petroleum system models.

Dr. Bernie B. Bernard received a Ph.D. in 1978 in chemical oceanography from Texas A&M University. After teaching Organic Geochemistry and Isotope Geochemistry at the University of Oklahoma for two years, he accepted a position as VP of O.I. Analytical, Inc., a supplier of analytical instruments for the determination of organic contaminants in water, soil, and air. In 1993 he joined the Geochemical and Environmental Research Group of Texas A&M University as Deputy Director. In 1996, Dr. Bernard formed TDI-Brooks International, Inc. with his partner, Dr. James M. Brooks, where he currently is the VP/Technology Director. Dr. Bernard’s career has focused on the molecular and isotopic compositions of the light hydrocarbon gases in marine sediments, and his models for interpretation of sources of light hydrocarbon gases in marine sediments (“Bernard Plots”) are commonly used by scientists worldwide
