The third annual AAPG Winter Education Conference returns Feb. 6-10, featuring several encore courses plus some exciting new additions.
The conference offers 12 courses over five days, creating an opportunity for intensive training all in one place. That includes four concurrent sessions each day, with staggered start/stop times throughout the week, allowing attendees to attend up to four courses, depending on their interest and training needs.
Courses range from one to three days in length, and are built around a "practical application" focus, offering tools and skills participants can begin using immediately in their jobs.
Courses also are grouped in similar "tracks," making it easier to follow a particular theme throughout the week.
As in the past, there will be one tuition for the entire week and badges are transferable -- for one full-week paid registration, one person can attend a course early in the week, then pass the badge to a co-worker to attend a course later in the week.
A full-week registration fee is $1,195 for AAPG members ($1,295 for non-members), but courses also are priced individually for those that prefer the "ala carte" option.
The 2006 list of courses includes:
- Reservoir Engineering for Geologists.
- Rock Properties of Tight Gas Sandstones.
- Evaluation and Development of Unconventional Resource Plays.
- Well Completions and Interventions.
- Introduction to DSTs for Geologists.
- Practical Wireline Tester Interpretation Workshop.
- Basic Openhole Log Interpretation.
- Log Analysis of Shaly Sands.
- Integrated Exploration and Evaluation of Fractured Reservoirs.
- Essentials of Subsurface Mapping.
- Introduction to Computer Mapping.
- Practical Mapping of Surfaces, Properties and Volumes for Reservoir Characterization.
