Field Seminars

Getting out in the field and being able to touch, see and feel the objects of your training makes for the best possible experience. Our field seminars are designed to maximize your time and travel with a combination of field work, lecture and class work.

 
Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa
22-23 June 2017

Led by De Ville Wickens (Geo-Routes Petroleum, Cape Town) and Doug Cole (Council for Geoscience, Bellville)

Participants of this field excursion will be introduced to the stratigraphy of the southwestern Karoo Basin by visiting the prime outcrop areas of the Dwyka and Ecca Groups in the Laingsburg and Tanqua Karoo regions. The southwestern Karoo Basin hosts a considerable amount of information on glaciogenic, deep-water and deltaic sedimentation with present day erosion allowing 3D-viewing of laterally continuous (tens of kilometres) outcrops. The Ecca Group in these areas, for example, hosts the world's best examples of deep-water basin floor to slope fan complexes, making it the most sought after “open air laboratory” for studying fine-grained deep-water sedimentation.

The objective of this field trip is to gain a better understanding of the tectono-sedimentary history and stratigraphic evolution of southwestern part of the Karoo Basin, basic depositional processes, facies development, controls on sedimentation patterns and post-depositional diagenetic and structural changes. It further aims to integrate different scales of observation and interpretation, namely the basin (exploration) and the development and production scale (facies distribution and bed-scale stratigraphy). This two-day field trip will focus on show-casing the glaciogenic Dwyka Group, and the Prince Albert and Whitehill Formations of the Ecca Group, which are main targets for shale gas development in South Africa.

Forums

Forum is a new teaching environment for AAPG. The Forum goal is to maximize knowledge transfer by encouraging lively interaction and thoughtful consideration of experts' findings, experience, and insights. Practicing experts provide in-depth presentations on topics that have immediate bearing on success in exploration, development, and operations.

Short Courses

A wealth of information in a short period of time. Short courses are an effective and efficient way to learn about the industry. With so many to choose from, there’s something for everyone.

AAPG Event Jakarta Indonesia 24 October, 2016 Geochemistry and Basin Modeling, Petroleum Systems 8:00 AM 8:00 PM 30 August, 2016
 
Jakarta, Indonesia
24-25 October 2016

This course provides a systematic approach on petroleum exploration, using examples from SE Asia. In a Play-Based Exploration approach, the 'play' is used as the main tool for evaluation.

Workshops

AAPG Geosciences Technology Workshops (GTWs) deliver up-to-date technical content to AAPG members and the industry. Their agendas address the question “How are we doing it now?” through an examination of the latest practices as illustrated with case studies and field examples. The focus is on the sharing of information among knowledgeable individuals in a highly-interactive environment.

Attendees, practitioners and scientists have an opportunity to discuss real cases, issues, and experiences. GTWs follow two tracks for discussion: research and application. Joint workshops are produced in cooperation with other societies, expanding their scope to an even broader spectrum of participants and geoscience topics.
