David R. Wunsch, state geologist and director of the Delaware Geological Survey, was invited by U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette to serve on the National Petroleum Council (NPC), representing the American Geosciences Institute (AGI). Wunsch is the president-elect of AGI, which is a nonprofit federation of geoscientific and professional associations that represents more than 250,000 geologists, geophysicists and other earth scientists. The NPC is a federally chartered and privately funded advisory committee established by President Harry S. Truman in 1946 to provide advice, information and recommendations on matters related to the oil and gas industries. The NPC membership includes well-balanced representation from all segments of the oil and gas industries, as well as members with interests outside of oil or gas operations, including representatives from academic, financial, research, Native American and public interest organizations and institutions. Wunsch will serve a two-year term on the council.
