Instructor Program Expands for Second Season
One for Domestic Audiences, One for International
AAPG’s Distinguished Instructor program, entering its second season, will expand to two instructors – one for domestic groups, and one for international.
The Distinguished Instructor program is intended to complement the Distinguished Lecture series. DI instructors, who serve two-year stints in the program, offer half-day, full-day and/or two-day short courses as opposed to one-hour lectures.
Their itinerary is based on requests received at headquarters in Tulsa.
This year’s instructors are:
Vitor Abreu, last year’s inaugural instructor, is back for a second year, offering a course on “Sequence Stratigraphy for Petroleum Exploration.” He is with ExxonMobil Exploration in Houston.
His international itinerary to date includes:

His course will be “a hands-on workshop on the expression and correlation of depositional sequences in seismic, well-log, core and outcrop data using Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic examples.”
