Spotlight on Education
AAPG has several education opportunities for you in the month of April.
Now is the time to sign up for AAPG’s short courses and field seminars offered in conjunction with our annual convention in Long Beach in early April. Log on to AAPG’s Web site for a complete listing of courses and registration details for the convention at www.aapg.org/longbeach2007/toc.cfm.
The always-popular “Modern Terrigenous Clastic Depositional Systems” field seminar will be held April 13-20 in South Carolina, beginning in Columbia and ending in Charleston. It is taught by Walter Sexton, the complete course description is at www.aapg.org/education/fieldseminars/details.cfm?ID=6.
Another favorite field seminar, “Clastic Reservoir Facies and Sequence Stratigraphic Analysis of Alluvial Plain, Shoreface, Deltaic and Shelf Depositional Systems,” scheduled for April 22-28, begins and ends in Salt Lake City. Thomas Ryer is the leader – and he’s been teaching for AAPG for over 15 years! Course details are at www.aapg.org/education/fieldseminars/details.cfm?ID=9.
Due to demand, we’ve scheduled two offerings of our “Basic Well Log Analysis” short course, and the first will be held April 23-26, in Denver. This course is taught by industry experts George Asquith and Daniel Krygowski. The course description is at www.aapg.org/education/shortcourse/details.cfm?ID=109.
If some of your support staff could benefit from a non-technical course that explains the language and processes of petroleum exploration, drilling and production, they can take advantage of the April 24-26 offering of Norman Hyne’s course on “Basic Petroleum Geology for Non-Geologists.” This course will be held in Houston, co-sponsored by AAPG and the University of Tulsa’s Continuing Engineering and Science Education (CESE) Department. Find out more at www.aapg.org/education/shortcourse/details.cfm?ID=69.
