Middle East Region Sets GTW Lineup

Contributors: Abeer Al-Zubaidi

In an effort to continue serving the geosciences community in the Middle East, AAPG Middle East Region will be offering a number of Geosciences Technology Workshops (GTWs) where the attendees, practitioners and scientists will have an opportunity to discuss real cases, issues and experiences.

The AAPG Geosciences Technology Workshops, offering the latest in cuttingedge technology in an interactive environment, follow two tracks for discussion: research and application.

The GTW Middle East schedule for the next several months includes:

  • “Hydrocarbon Trapping Mechanisms in the Middle East,” Dec. 10-12, Istanbul, Turkey
  • “Fracture Monitoring Using Passive Seismic,” Jan. 28-30, Dubai, UAE.
  • Rock Physics, Feb. 4-6, Kuwait City, Kuwait.
  • Geosteering and Well Placement in Thin Reservoirs, Feb. 25-27, Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.
  • E&P Data Management, March 11-13, Dubai, UAE.
  • Seismic Reservoir Characterization, March 25-27, Abu Dhabi, UAE.
  • Geosciences Workforce: Attraction and Retention, April 8-10, Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt
  • Exploring and Producing Fractured Reservoirs, April 22-24, Dead Sea, Jordan.
  • Exploration of Subsalt Structures in Rift Basins, May 6-8, Amman, Jordan.
  • Looking Ahead of the Drilling Bit, June 3-5, Beirut, Lebanon.
  • Young Professionals Workshop: Mentoring to Bridge the Gap, June 17-19, TBD.

Shale gas and associated hydraulic fracturing or “fracking” has become a hot-button environmental issue in the United States and around the world. The purpose of this talk is to provide some background geological and engineering information on the issue and to take a more in-depth look at some of the environmental pros and cons of shale gas development.

As the U.S. increases its production of crude oil, pressure continues to build to allow crude exports. U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) has been asked to study the economic impacts of potentially lifting the ban and those studies are expected to be released in the late 2014/early 2015 timeframe.
