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 Cancun Mexico 05 September, 2016 Member, Short Courses, Conventions, Pre-Convention, Geophysics 8:00 AM 5:00 PM 09 May, 2016
 
Cancun, Mexico
5-6 September 2016

This course is based on the systematic, comparative interpretation of modern, long offset, regional seismic profiles with time and depth migration and several suites of selected 3-D data in the deep-water realm from around the world.

Hydrocarbons are increasingly more difficult to find because reservoirs are often located in geologically complex areas. The geologic complexity has motivated a significant paradigm shift from time imaging towards the extensive use of seismic depth imaging. Depth imaging improves the definition of the structural and stratigraphic frameworks and provides a better assessment and mitigation of risk in E&P.

Cancun, Mexico
5-6 September 2016

This course will introduce the science and technology that geologists will use in the next decade. These concepts will be shown how they can be applied to Mexican petroleum basins. Several interpretation exercises will be done to emphasize the key points for each theme.

AAPG Event Cancun Mexico 05 September, 2016 Member, Student, Short Courses, Conventions, Pre-Convention, Sedimentology and Stratigraphy 8:00 AM 4:00 PM 09 May, 2016
 
Cancun, Mexico
5-6 September 2016

This course is designed to provide geoscientists with more advanced methods in sequence stratigraphy to recognize, interpret, and map the key play elements of the petroleum system (reservoir, seal, and source rock). The course will cover problems of predicting play element presence, distribution, and quality from business scales ranging from Exploration to Production.

AAPG Event Cancun Mexico 10 September, 2016 Member, Student, Short Courses, Conventions, Post-Convention, Structure, Salt Tectonics 8:00 AM 5:00 PM 09 May, 2016
 
Cancun, Mexico
10-11 September 2016

This two-day short course will provide an overview of salt tectonics in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM), including both the US and Mexican portions of the basin. It will cover a range of topics ranging from the fundamental mechanics of salt-related deformation to the regional distribution of different structural styles, including relevant aspects of extensional, contractional, vertical, and allochthonous salt tectonics. It is intended for geoscientists with different levels of expertise, from those new to the GoM or salt tectonics to those with years of experience in exploring in this complex basin.

AAPG Event Houston Texas United States 22 September, 2016 Business and Economics, Economics 8:00 AM 8:00 PM 08 August, 2016
 
Houston, Texas, United States
22 September 2016

This course will consist of lecture and exercises to assist the new industry energy professionals with understanding the principles of petroleum economics; including the value of money, quantifying financials risks in petroleum investments, rates of return, forecasting cash flows and the fundamentals of capital budgeting.

 
Houston, Texas, United States
3-4 October 2016

This course is for earth scientists and engineers involved in exploration or production from carbonate rocks. This is an introductory course that assumes no pre-existing knowledge. It moves from basic principles to advanced ideas and case studies that will also help experienced geoscientists with practical aspects of carbonate depositional systems.

AAPG Event Houston Texas United States 03 October, 2016 Geochemistry and Basin Modeling, Petroleum Systems, Source Rock, Sedimentology and Stratigraphy, Carbonates, Oil and Gas Analysis 8:00 AM 5:00 PM 21 June, 2016
 
Houston, Texas, United States
3-4 October 2016
This course will provide sufficient background to better understand basic principles of petroleum geochemistry, how best to use geochemistry in their exploration or development study area, determine the limitations of geochemical data/interpretation, and types of samples and analysis required to evaluate a basin, region, play, or well. 
AAPG Event London United Kingdom 04 October, 2016 8:00 AM 8:00 PM 18 August, 2016
 
London, United Kingdom
4 October 2016

This workshop focuses on the diagenesis of biogenic silica bearing sediments, although the lessons learned from this system may be applicable more generally.

AAPG Event Houston Texas United States 07 October, 2016 Development and Operations, Engineering, Development geology processes 8:00 AM 12:00 PM 18 July, 2016
 
Houston, Texas, United States
7 October 2016
This course is intended to help development geologists (and geophysicists) with 0 - 2 years’ experiences to quickly become effective contributors to field development. Workflow, well planning, support and post-well evaluation will be covered.
 
Houston, Texas, United States
6-8 December 2016

Here is an introduction to the tools and techniques that geologists and geophysicists use to locate gas and oil, that drillers use to drill the wells and that petroleum engineers use to test and complete the wells and produce the gas and oil. Exercises throughout the course provide practical experience in well log correlation, contouring, interpretation of surface and subsurface, contoured maps, seismic interpretation, well log interpretation, and decline curve analysis.

The paradigm of sequence stratigraphy has entered a new phase and these once revolutionary concepts are now applied in pre-drill exploration at ever-increasing resolution. The concepts also prove useful in production geology, especially in enhanced oil recovery efforts in previously abandoned fields.
