Abstract

The ESSO RESEARCH AND ENGINEERING COMPANY IS NOW CONSTRUCTING A RADIATION LABORATORY at Linden, New Jersey. This new centre will, according to Eger V. Murphree, president of the company and a member of the Atomic Energy Commission's General Advisory Committee, be devoted to applying “the vast potential of atomic energy to the petroleum industry”. It is claimed that it will be the first privately financed radiation laboratory of its type, and that it should make possible an intensive research programme for the oil industry.
