This workshop will focus on the elements necessary for success in deep horizon and deep water exploration in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Worldwide attention is attracted to Latin America and the Caribbean as exploration of Cretaceous targets continues into frontier areas, especially within the deep water Caribbean/Atlantic margin. Challenges lie not only in identifying targets but also in establishing ways to commercialize them. Current understandings of the environmental impact, depth to target formations, technological considerations and production methods, will benefit from focused discussions by regional experts utilizing case studies to highlight the most recent developments in these fields.
To advance understanding and promote knowledge sharing, the AAPG Latin America Region and the Geological Society of Trinidad & Tobago will co-host GTW T&T 2013. The workshop is organized into four sessions.
Preliminary Session Themes:
- Session 1: Cretaceous Exploration in the Caribbean
- Session 2: Is the Cretaceous an Effective Petroleum System?
- Session 3: Deepwater Frontier Exploration—Global Analogues
- Session 4: Drilling and Operational Challenges in High Pressure/
High Temperature Environments
As we retrace geological history through to the Cretaceous, closing the Atlantic Ocean, and bringing together the eastern margin of South America and the western margin of Africa, so too are we attempting to bring together, share and benefit from the learnings and exploration experiences along these continental and oceanic plate margins.
The GTW format facilitates knowledge sharing through:
- Interdisciplinary talks
- Small group discussion among all workshop participants
- Unique exchange of fresh idea and best practices
- Opportunities for future collaboration
- AAPG Non-endorsement Policy
- The American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) does not endorse or recommend any products and services that may be cited, used or discussed in AAPG publications or in presentations at events associated with AAPG.
