Abstracts are still being sought for the next AAPG Hedberg Conference, which deals with “Heavy Oil -- Origin, Prediction and Production in Deepwaters.”
The abstract deadline, however, is fast approaching; abstracts must be submitted by Aug. 15.
The conference, sponsored by the AAPG Research Committee, will be held Oct. 8-10 in Veracruz, Mexico.
It is designed for experts from industry, academia and government agencies -- in both research and E&P activities -- to examine the mechanisms of formation of heavy oils; the pre-drill prediction and identification of these hydrocarbons; present and future technologies; and their potential importance to future oil production.
The technical program comprises posters and 30-minute talks, set around the themes:
- Deepwater Setting -- Geology, Economics and Technology.
- Oil Quality Controls -- Review and Case Studies.
- Heavy Oil, Deepwater and Offshore Case Studies.
- Comparison with Onshore Production Techniques -- State of the Art.
