Eastern Section Spotlights Shales

The onshore shale petroleum systems of eastern North America will be in the spotlight during the AAPG Eastern Section’s annual meeting, set Sept. 25-29 in Kalamazoo, Mich.

The meeting’s theme is “Perseverance – The Pipeline to Prosperity,” and four of the technical program’s sessions – comprising 22 papers and eight posters – will be devoted to the much-publicized eastern shale systems.

Several presentations will deal with exploration and development in the Marcellus Shale.

Specific talks will include:

Regional Sequence Stratigraphic Interpretation of the Marcellus Shale.

Characteristics of the Utica Black Shale in New York and Pennsylvania.

Applying 3-D Seismic in Marcellus Shale Development.

What’s New With the New Albany Play in Illinois in 2010?

Bloomin’ Algae! How Paleogeography and Algal Blooms May Have Significantly Impacted Deposition and Preservation of the Marcellus Shale (see page 26).

Other technical sessions will deal with:

Reservoir Characterization.

Geological Sequestration of CO2 and CO2/EOR.

Trenton and Black River Exploration and Production.

Responsible Development of Energy Resources in an Environment of Climate Change.

Structural Analysis and Basin Modeling.

Quantitative Applications for Reservoir Characterization and Production.

GIS and Computer Applications.
