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-EAGE Geoscience Technology Workshop

The goal of the workshop is to improve understanding of carbonate play types around the world, and to optimize efforts by using analogues for poorly understood discoveries, and challenging reservoirs where characterization may be complex. Studies will include microbialites in Brazil, carbonate-dominated unconventionals, and diagenetically altered reservoirs, along with other case studies and research.

The productive extent of the Eagle Ford has expanded, thanks to new information and understanding of the factors that make the formation producible in a particular prospect or location. The same is true of adjacent formations such as the Buda and the Austin Chalk, along with Cretaceous extensions of the Eagle Ford, which extend from the Eaglebine to the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale.

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.
