About the Event
The Houston Bar Association (HBA) Energy Law Section and the Houston Producers Forum (HPF) invite you to their 2024 Spring Social. Located in the Wiess Energy Hall at the Houston Museum of Natural Science - 5555 Hermann Park Dr, Houston, TX 77030 - experience the most technologically advanced exhibition on the science and technology of energy anywhere in the world.
Visitors enter the expansive 30,000 square feet exhibit — almost the size of a football field — by stepping out of the elevator onto a 21st-century offshore drilling rig. Not far away, the Geovator takes visitors on a fantastic voyage plunging down through the museum floors into the earth, then back in time to the Cretaceous period for an attack by hungry pteranodons and a meteor strike.
The Eagle Ford Shale Experience, a.k.a. the “EFX 3000,” beckons visitors to step aboard for a wild ride out to prime Texas shale oil and gas drilling country and down into the borehole of an oil well, made real with curved projection techniques and mechanical motion effects. Reduced to microscopic size, the craft ventures into the narrow spaces of a hydraulic micro-fracture, surrounded by seemingly massive grains of proppant. Things may get a little dodgy for a bit, but the EFX makes a safe return to the museum!
