Hi - this is a very late reply in this thread but here goes anyway. My dad was a geologist on Penrod 74 - I was only 12 or so when he was there but I recall many stories about it. He was quite moved by his experience there (he'd worked as a consultant all around the world) as he was certain that somewhere under there was a HUGE crude oil deposit but in the same sentence he would lament over how deep and rough it was out there.
Anyway I am sure I could think of lots of stories he told me if anyone is interested. Also would love any contact from anybody who remembered my Dad.
