Joint Workshop Tackles Wedge Plays

American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)
Contributors: Jeremy Richardson

The inaugural EAGE-AAPG workshop, titled “Basin-Margin Wedge Exploration Plays,” will be held Nov. 20-22 in Lisbon, Portugal.

The workshop intends to cover explora­tion play concepts, know-how and case studies, presented in oral sessions and discussed in a round-table format.

The sessions themselves will include a combina­tion of keynote papers and a call for papers, which closes on July 15.

The workshop’s theme is exemplified by several significant recent discoveries on the margins of the South Atlantic. Its intent is to promote dis­cussion on the strengths and failings of such a play concept and about the risks associated with each component of the petroleum systems:

  • Charge.
  • Reservoir occurrence and quality.
  • Vertical and lateral seals and traps.

The workshop is open to explo­rationists and specialists dealing with the architecture and evolution of continental margins, along with doctoral and post-doctoral students

The number of participants will be limited to 100-120. Priority will be given to participants who submit papers.

This inaugural EAGE-AAPG workshop is planned to be the first in a series of jointly sponsored events that will alternate each year between Europe and North America.

Comprising the organizing committee are, for EAGE, J.J. Jarrige, with Total; AAPG member H. Ligtenberg, with Shell International E&P; and C. Duguid, with Tullow. Representing AAPG are current AAPG vice president-Regions Stuart Harker, with Circle Oil; David Blanchard, with Energy XXI; and N. Frewin, with Hess.
