Perhaps a certain JimBob may know the answer.

Perhaps JimBob doesn't know. He hasn't talked with the president of Exxon for over a month an he hasn't spoken with BP CEO Tony Howard for six or seven days now. Last time Tony called me we were trying to figure out what to do if Israel or President Bubba attacks Iran before the end of the year. Our time is more valuable than some H.R. manager's time.

SO. I suggest that you, jezza, contact the fine people at the Jackson School of Geoscience using the info you find at this link.

These people will know for sure. And they will help if the companies do offer grants or other support.

WOW! If only you could open, and walk through a gate without needing major surgery.

OK, OK, I should have used the truck to push the gate open. At least I have hair on my head.
