Post M.Sc. Petroleum Geology thesis topic
Hi Everyone,
I am looking for an interesting topic to research on for my M.Sc. My first topic involved analysis of path lines (secondary migration) but coincidentally a colleague is doing something almost identical. However, I would have changed it to something slightly different but we have limited resources (no software for modelling) in my country and exploration for oil just started so the big companies may not be so generous with data and software.
So, I would appreciate if there is someone with a topic they can pass along. (I will credit your contribution). Thanks :)

You might consider studying the impact of "fracking" on the environment and on surrounding communities. Lots of naysayers out there claim that fracking causes earthquakes and other environmental disasters, and contaminates groundwater to the point that it is unusable by society. I personally don't know what the real story is, but from the standpoint of oil and gas production, fracking is thus far proving to be quite valuable. Despite the energy benefits, fracking as a practice is facing legal and regulatory opposition in the United States, which could result in cessation of the practice. Exploring the impacts, both pro and con, could make for a pretty comprehensive Master's Thesis.
