For Exhibitors
ACE FT 03 | Young Professionals Guided Hike to Stanley Glacier and Marble Canyon, Kootenay National Park Registration Form

The tour will lead participants up the Stanley Glacier trail, through the notorious burn zone of 2003, now a beautiful regrowth area, and up to the Burgess shale outcrop where views of the Stanley Glacier valley are spectacular.

ACE FT 13 | The Mid-Paleozoic Exshaw/Banff Unconventional Petroleum System, Alberta: Correlative of Bakken Tight-Oil Play in Williston Basin download form

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.

ACE FT 14 | Sequence Stratigraphy and Resulting Facies Architecture of the Upper Devonian (Frasnian), Main and Front Ranges, West Central Alberta download form

This two and a half day post conference field trip will examine Upper Devonian (Frasnian) shallow water carbonate platform and time equivalent basinal strata (Winterburn, Woodbend and Beaverhill Lake Groups subsurface) at a number of well exposed outcrops in the Main and Front Ranges of West Central Alberta.

ACE FT 15 | Montney Formation in the Jasper Area download form

This field trip focuses on the Montney Formation in the Foothills and Front Ranges outcrop belt in the Alberta Rockies. On Day 1, we shall depart Calgary and drive west towards Banff. Our first stop will be at road cuts on Mt. Norquay to observe the basal contact of the Montney succession. On Day 2 we will travel to the Cadomin area, just outside of Jasper National Park, where we will spend the full day looking at the ‘proximal’ Montney. The third and final day of the field trip focuses on more distal Montney successions.

ACE SC 10 | Assessment of Alberta Oil Sands – Integration of Geology, Geophysics, Geochemistry and Reservoir Engineering for Reservoir Characterization and Optimizing Thermal Recovery download form

This two day seminar integrates the principles of Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) and emerging production enhancement technologies with reservoir characterization, primarily focused on the McMurray Formation. Developing a 3-dimensional view of these oil sands deposits, understanding the impact of reservoir heterogeneity on steam chamber growth and identifying production risk are important considerations for developing optimal recovery strategies. Hands-on examination of representative oil sands cores provides critical observations for each reservoir type. Post-steam core provides direct knowledge of production mechanisms and steam chamber growth and conformance.

This course reviews the basin analysis methods and workflows used in oil and gas exploration, with special emphasis on the integration of geologic, geophysical and geochemical data. The workflows are built on three main disciplines: sedimentology, sequence stratigraphy and seismic geomorphology. Logs and 2-D/3-D seismic will be used to characterize clastic and carbonate depositional systems through time and space in the principal sedimentary basin types, including extensional basins (rifts, growth fault margins and passive margins), foreland basins and confined basins associated with mud and salt diapirism.

This course is designed to teach graduate students the principles, concepts and methods of sequence stratigraphy. Sequence stratigraphy is an informal chronostratigraphic methodology that uses stratal surfaces to subdivide the stratigraphic record. This methodology allows the identification of coeval facies, documents the time-transgressive nature of classic lithostratigraphic units and provides geoscientists with an additional way to analyze and subdivide the stratigraphic record.

ACE SC 13 | Advanced Geochemical Technologies: Methods That Reveal the Rest of Your Petroleum System download form

The technologies and methods to be presented in this course have been underutilized compared to the wealth of new understanding they can bring forth when applied to petroleum system analysis and modeling. The course content will cover three selected topics in advanced geochemical technologies

ACE SC 14 | Integration of Petroleum Geochemistry and Reservoir PVT Analyses for Evaluation of Hydrocarbon Resource Plays download form

This course will address integration of source rock, produced oil and gas, mud gas and reservoir engineering data to better understand and exploit 3-dimensional details of petroleum systems. Source rock, carbon isotope and oil biomarker geochemistry will be stressed as a way to determine quantity and type of generated hydrocarbons and migration distance and direction within source rock and tight oil plays.

ACE SC 15| The Three P's of Stratigraphic Geosteering:  Principals, Practices and Pitfalls download form

This course presents the basic mission critical information needed to understand the “Stratigraphic Geosteering” process from pre-drill plan to kick-off to final TD. The course includes an introduction to terminology, concepts, drilling processes, data acquisition, data delivery, and appropriate LWD tool selection; all from the perspective of the instructor’s many years of experience in different plays.

ACE SC 16 | Rock & Seismic Sequence Expression of Carbonate Systems – Exploration & Reservoir Characterization download form

This two-day workshop provides an introduction to the application of carbonate facies, diagenesis, and seismic sequence stratigraphy to exploration and production. This includes marine and lacustrine systems, and conventional and unconventional carbonate reservoirs. The workshop combines seismic, well log and rock data, and the concepts of sequence stratigraphy to develop interpretations that help predict carbonate hydrocarbon systems, and characterize carbonate reservoirs and seals. At the completion of this workshop, participants will be able to integrate carbonate and sequence stratigraphy principles to their work.

ACE SC 7 | Sequence-Stratigraphic Analysis of Shales: Key to Paleoclimate Archives, Subsurface Fluid Flow and Hydrocarbon Source, Reservoir and Seal download form

This workshop combines interactive lectures and exercises addressing the expression of depositional sequences in mudstones on seismic, well-log, core and outcrop data. Examples include the New Albany Shale, Barnett Shale, Shublik Formation, Kimmeridge Formation, Kingak Formation, Hue Shale, Mowry Shale and Monterey Formation. Participants will practice recognition and correlation of significant stratigraphic packages through seismic stratigraphy, stacking pattern analysis of well-log, core and outcrop data, shale sedimentology, thin-section and geochemical data.

ACE SC 8 | Principles of Stratigraphy download form
ACE SC 9 | From Rocks to Models: Geological Reservoir Characterization and Modeling download form

The course provides an introduction to the concepts and methods of geological reservoir characterization and modeling through lectures, exercises, and case studies. A variety of topics are discussed that include sedimentary and reservoir-rock properties, heterogeneity and flow units, well logs and pay determination, unconventional resources, siliciclastic and carbonate deposits and reservoirs, structural controls on reservoir heterogeneity, and reservoir modeling concepts and methods. Exercises and case studies using data from well logs, cores, seismic, and outcrops will be presented to strengthen participant understanding of concepts and methods.
