The Woodford Shale produces across a fairly wide area, and an understanding of the lithology, structure, geochemistry, and formation fluids is vital. This forum brings together experts in geology, geophysics, engineering, and geochemistry to take an integrated view of the reservoir, with the goal of improved exploration, completion, stimulation, and fluids management.
Join us for presentations by experts, discussion, and a networking reception in the hub of the Woodford, Oklahoma City.
What is the structure of the event?
The “Forum” is a new format for the AAPG, which encourages in-depth presentations by practicing experts on topics that have immediate bearing on success in exploration, development, and operations. The goal is to maximize knowledge transfer by encouraging lively interaction and thoughtful consideration of the experts' findings, experience, and insights. Presentations will be longer than in most venues, which allows an in-depth look, and there will be ample time given for questions and discussion. All participants will have the opportunity to take a “test your knowledge” quiz over the content, and to obtain AAPG Continuing Education Units and DPA professional development hours.
Venue: The Skirvin Hilton
The Skirvin Hilton is a historic hotel located in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City. For over a century, this landmark hotel has accommodated some of the world’s most influential people, from presidents and politicians to actors and athletes. In 2007, the famous Skirvin building was architecturally restored to ensure that it remains a historically significant landmark in the Oklahoma City landscape.
The Skirvin Hilton is the go-to venue for business people, event hosts, and party-goers alike. With spectacular ballrooms and lavish boardrooms, the Skirvin Hilton’s meeting and event space is ideal for just about any event.

For the business traveler, the Skirvin Hilton’s hotel business center provides a highly efficient and effective work environment with a variety of services, office equipment, and high-speed Internet access. Health-conscious guests will enjoy working out on the latest cardio and strength equipment in the fitness center before taking a dip in the heated indoor pool.
