Niobrara to Star at RMS

American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)

The potential of Wyoming's Niobrara shale play will be in the spotlight during this year's AAPG Rocky Mountain Section meeting, set June 25-29 in Cheyenne, Wyo.

The meeting's theme is "Energy on the Rocks," and while the technical sessions will offer a varied program, the relatively new focus on the Niobrara will be featured.

The Niobrara focus will include a field trip, core workshop and a plenary session that offers papers on such topics as:

  • Exploration and development history.
  • Facies and stratigraphy.
  • Models for accumulation and preservation of organic matter.
  • Kerogen type and thermal maturity trends across the Rocky Mountain region.
  • Mapping wireline log properties.

Also, meeting organizers have planned a public session addressing Niobrara exploration and production concerns, addressing questions on geology, land, water and governmental regulations that surround Niobrara oil and gas development. Other technical sessions will address:

  • CO2 EOR and sequestration.
  • EMD sessions on geothermal, uranium and coal.
  • Evaluation of unconventional plays.
  • Rocky Mountain structure.
  • Stratigraphy and sedimentology.
