Salt Lake City, Utah, United States
3-9 May 2014

The seminar focuses on the lithologic variations that characterize clastic reservoir facies and on development of models that can be used to predict these variations in the subsurface.

Las Vegas, Nevada, United States
31 May - 6 June 2014

For those who have not visited the region previously (or have not had the chance to tour it in depth), this field seminar will provide a comprehensive journey into the geological story of this fascinating landscape.

Las Negras Spain 01 June, 2014 06 June, 2014 31
 
Las Negras, Spain
1-6 June 2014

The field seminar develops and evaluates the sequence stratigraphic framework and controls on location and reservoir character of Upper Miocene-Pliocene carbonate sequences from a variety of carbonate systems within the context of the regional paleogeography.

Watkins Glen New York United States 23 June, 2014 27 June, 2014 147
 
Watkins Glen, New York, United States
23-27 June 2014
A Joint AAPG / University at Buffalo field seminar

The attendee will gain a working knowledge concerning how faults and fractures develop and their terminology, methodologies utilized in collecting and analyzing fracture data, characteristics of faults and fractures that affect the sedimentary units (including black shales) in the northern Appalachian Basin of New York state, and tectonics that led to the formation of the structures in the northern Appalachian Basin and the adjacent Appalachian Orogen.

Great Falls Montana United States 14 July, 2014 19 July, 2014 108
 
Great Falls, Montana, United States
14-19 July 2014

Participants will explore a number of classic geological sites that affected the Lewis and Clark expedition in Montana on this six-day excursion.

Alberta Canada 20 July, 2014 26 July, 2014 149
 
Alberta, Canada
20-26 July 2014

This structural field course in the Front Ranges of the Canadian Rockies focuses on relating outcrop to seismic expressions of compressive structural styles that are common in fold-and-thrust belts and deepwater passive margins (toe thrust belts) worldwide. Participants will recognize common types of structures in fold-and-thrust belts, apply fault-related folding concepts to interpret these structures, identify petroleum traps and their major structural risk elements, and recognize similarities between styles of trap and reservoir-scale deformation.

Grand Junction Colorado United States 04 September, 2014 11 September, 2014 86
 
Grand Junction, Colorado, United States
4-11 September 2014

Participants will learn through the use of spectacular outcrops, subsurface datasets, and stratigraphic modeling how these systems tracts and key surfaces (flooding surfaces and sequence boundaries) may be recognized.

Columbia South Carolina United States 04 September, 2014 11 September, 2014 2575
 
Columbia, South Carolina, United States
4-11 September 2014

This field seminar offers an excellent opportunity for the students to walk on a variety of modern terrigenous clastic depositional systems while observing sedimentary processes, modern sedimentary structures, and numerous trenches illuminating the three-dimensional architecture of each area.

Great Falls Montana United States 08 September, 2014 13 September, 2014 150
 
Great Falls, Montana, United States
8-13 September 2014

The seminar will utilize traverses to examine multiple thrust sheets exposed in Sun River Canyon, the famous Teton Anticline, and an outstanding example of an exposed fractured reservoir along a fault‐propagated fold in Mississippian carbonates as Swift Reservoir. Participants will examine the mechanics of fracturing, folding, and faulting in thrust belt terrains, identify and discuss new ideas regarding the geometry and kinematics of the development of thrust belts, compare seismic interpretation with outcrop examples, and analyze stratigraphic concepts which are essential in the exploration of thrust belt targets.

Salt Lake City Utah United States 14 September, 2014 21 September, 2014 151
 
Salt Lake City, Utah, United States
14-21 September 2014

This course therefore aims at developing an understanding of the unique aspects of lacustrine source rocks, reservoirs, and basin evolution that will aid future exploration and development efforts.

Naples Italy 20 September, 2014 26 September, 2014 36
 
Naples, Italy
20-26 September 2014

The main part of the field seminar will focus on the description of the fractured carbonates and the extrapolation from the outcrop observations to the subsurface for building geologically plausible reservoir models.

Barcelona Spain 22 September, 2014 26 September, 2014 153
 
Barcelona, Spain
22-26 September 2014

Participants will examine illustrative outcrops of thrusts, fault-related folds, stratal architectures and facies of depositional systems affected by growing structures, which are good analogues for hydrocarbon reservoirs. Objectives include interpreting complex thrust structures, identifying and understanding strain and fracture systems in fold-thrust belts, and analyzing patterns of growth strata in areas with synsedimentary folding.
