Balgownie Geoscience in 2023 – Supporting the Energy Transition

by | Dec 20, 2023 | 0 comments

The end of the year is fast approaching. Before we start looking ahead to 2024 we thought it would be good to look back on an incredibly busy and successful year for Balgownie Geoscience.

This year we ran our highest number of field courses for clients. Something we are extremely proud of, and something we are looking to improve on again in 2024. Feedback has been great with clients happy with our ability to deliver bespoke and cost-effective trips. The gorgeous Scottish summer weather probably also helped.

One highlight of the year was running the DEVEX Conference Field Trip on the Angus coast. We also managed to fit in a visit to the Arbikie distillery at the end of one trip. A great opportunity to sample the world’s first Climate Positive Spirits whilst overlooking the beautiful Lunar Bay.

We attended and presented a poster (Are We Fully Utilising an Easily Accessible World Class Geoscience Resource in the Energy Transition? #ScotlandsGeoLab) at the highly successful EGC1 Conference in Aberdeen. This generated lots of interest and discussion with feedback clearly suggesting the need for more fieldwork. The topic was also presented to GESGB members in one of its monthly meetings.

Balgownie Geoscience also spent some time in Southern Spain, scouting locations for a future field trip. Watch this space. Last but not least, Steve also commenced a part-time PhD at the University of Aberdeen. He will be focusing on “the Upper Old Red Sandstone of Scotland and its Continental Shelf” working with Professors Adrian Hartley and John Howell.

It’s been an incredibly enjoyable year. We are very much looking forward to an even busier year in 2024. Why don’t you follow our progress via the recently published “Balgownie Blog“. We will also continue to update our followers on X, Instagram and LinkedIn throughout the year.
