SECTION SOUTHWESTERN SHELL DEDICATION Thursday, J)ecember 4,1947 HOUSTON, TEXAS Page 1, Section Two $1,300,000 Shell Research Laboratory Stages Its Formal Opening Under the premise that many of the problems of exploration (the initial attempt to find oil fields) and the production (the subse- quent exploitation of discovered fields) are closely related and that research in one field helps the other, Shell has devised a new pro- gram for experimentation. The re- search division is divided, not into exploration and production de- partments, the usual method, but into chemical, physical and geolog- ical departments. In addition, strong efforts are made to break down the barriers between the sci- entists with all working together for the ultimate good. Improvement and a better un- derstanding of already successful techniques will be included in the program, but the main objective of the laboratory will be the search for radically new tools and tech- niques. To achieve this aim, con- sid...

SOUTHWESTERN TIMES Thursday, December 4,1947 CONGRATULATIONS, MOTHER EARTH! With Shell Oil Company dedicating its new Exploration and Production Research Laboratory to the intensified search for new oil fields, new horizons and new production methods, things are "looking up" for Mother Earth. In the light of today's world-wide petroleum shortages, the Shell management's foresight in launching plans for this proj- ect before the war's end speaks well for the future. As pioneers in the design of welded steel structures and controlled conditions buildings, we are grateful for having had the opportunity to apply these time-tested engineering principles under The Austin Method of "undivided Responsi- bility" in a laboratory that is destined to influence the future course of technological, economic and social developments in such an important way. The vision and courage of Shell in the planning of this labora- tory have made it another outstanding achievement in a quarter century of Austi...

Coopera- tion and coordination between the two groups will be an important factor in the program. The greater Houston area was chosen as the site for the laboratory because within a radius of a few hundred miles is one of the world's great- est concentrations in variety of oil fields and potential oil fields. Thus, the scientist will be able to make field expeditions for ex- periments and will also be in close contact with the men in the field. A fleet of instrument trucks, trailers and boats (for marine ex- periments) are included as part of the laboratory's equipment. New Technique.
