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.

Calgary, Alberta, Canada
23-29 June 2016
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.

Calgary, Alberta, Canada
24-26 June 2016
In Conjunction with AAPG Annual Convention & Exhibition (ACE) — Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists (CSPG)

This trip is designed to examine the components of one of these unconventional systems, the Bakken-equivalent Exshaw and lower Banff of the southern Alberta Rockies. The latest Devonian to earliest Mississippian Exshaw Formation and overlying black shale of the lower Banff Formation provide an opportunity to see a coeval outcrop analogue of the Bakken petroleum system in the Williston Basin.

Calgary, Alberta, Canada
25-26 June 2016
In Conjunction with AAPG Annual Convention & Exhibition (ACE) — SEPM (Society for Sedimentary Geology)

This field trip focuses on the Montney Formation in the Foothills and Front Ranges outcrop belt in the Alberta Rockies immediately west of Calgary and provides a review of facies patterns in a variety of proximal and distal basinal settings.

Cancun, Mexico
3-5 September 2016
In Conjunction with AAPG | SEG 2016 International Conference & Exhibition (ICE) - Mexican Association of Petroleum Geologists (AMGP)

The objective of this field trip is to visit locations in the Mexican Caribbean Shore, to study recent sedimentary environments in carbonates related to coastal dunes, oolite sedimentation by eolian activity (eolinites), fracture systems in the Yucatan Platform, and their possible relationship with the formation of inlet, as well as modern sedimentary environments for the development of current reefs.

Columbia, South Carolina, United States
11-18 September 2016

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
12-17 September 2016
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
18-25 September 2016

Participants will learn a specific and comprehensive methodology for finding and developing conventional and unconventional oil and gas resources associated with lake deposits. The seminar will start with the Quaternary Bonneville basin in Utah, to build familiarity with lacustrine depositional processes. Participants then examine world-famous exposures of organic-rich mudstone, fluvial sandstone, and carbonate microbialite facies in Wyoming.

Grand Junction, Colorado, United States
28 September - 5 October 2016

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.

Naples, Italy
1-7 October 2016

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.
