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.

A Joint AAPG-STGS Geosciences Technology Workshop

With dramatically lower oil prices, it is more important than ever to optimize the productive zones within the Eagle Ford. This year's GTW will focus on case studies, experiences, and new applications of technologies that have been used to pinpoint sweet spots, identify understimulated zones, locate bypassed / stranded pay, and thus successfully optimize production. Techniques will include lesson learned and case studies on re-fracturing, geochemistry, integrated reservoir characterization and more.

Proactive Reservoir Management – PRM and Beyond

Permanent Reservoir Monitoring, also known as Life-of-Field Seismic, using permanently installed seismic cables, has been characterized by a few key marker projects but did not reach mainstream status during its first ten years. However, since the start of its second decade we have witnessed a flurry of new projects and activity so far, both in the Americas (Brazil) and Europe (Norway). Within a time span of about three years, these efforts combined are already dwarfing the efforts of the first 10 years.

An AAPG Asia Pacific Geosciences Technology Workshop

Make plans to attend an AAPG Geosciences Technology Workshop (GTW) to be held in Wellington between 21-23 April, 2015. The workshop will comprise four half-day sessions focused on broad depositional environment settings. The aim is to better understand modern depositional systems, and how they can help us to better interpret ancient petroleum reservoirs.
