Learning is important—now more than ever. How do you equip yourself for changing times? How do you deepen and broaden your knowledge? Here is an informal place to find out what we’re doing, what we’re planning, and how we’re listening to you. Dr. Susan Nash, AAPG’s Director of Education and Professional Development, shares the new territory she’s introducing to AAPG with courses and dynamic new workshops. She is also planning more interactive, Web 2.0 offerings. So, give her your input about the best and worst of the wild and woolly world of webinars, Web-based training, and open courseware.

The goal of this two-day workshop is to develop strategies for success in difficult times. We will bring together engineers, geologists and geophysicists to explore new ideas, workflows, techniques, and technologies for revitalizing existing wells.

A mixture of thirteen courses being taught by outstanding instructors in their respective fields.  Five days of knowledge sharing, case studies, exercises and more to take with you and add to your working knowledge of geoscience.

The 7th Annual AAPG Deepwater and Shelf Reservoirs Geoscience Technology Workshop will bring together the latest developments in geology, engineering, geophysics, and geochemistry in order to determine the best possible ways to understand and develop fields, as well as identify bold new exploration targets.

This short webinar will focus mainly on “source-to-sink”, and will detail methods used to quantify and qualify the sediment mass transported from the hinterland to the depocenter and the storage sites in route. This segment will train in the “fulcrum” approach for quantitatively approximating the sediment budget for ancient source-to-sink systems.

The AAPG "Ambient Seismic Imaging Throughout the Life Cycles of Unconventional Fields" e-symposia provides an overview of a new ambient seismic imaging method and applications of the method throughout the lifecycles (exploration through refracing) of unconventional oil and/or gas fields.  These applications include: direct imaging of hydraulic fractures, hydraulically stimulated natural fractures, stimulated reservoir volumes, and producing volumes; stress mapping in three dimensions before, during and after fracing; and Discrete Fracture Network (DFN) frac and reservoir simulation.

Build your resume with skills and knowledge. Attend AAPG's Unconventionals Update GTW, and receive a certificate of participation, CEUs and PDHs, and a you'll have a true resume builder, especially if you decide to present a poster. We'll video your presentation and put it on YouTube to maximize your exposure.

AAPG has a set of new e-symposia for this fall, just in time for you to build on your strengths and stay strong during a downturn.

AAPG's e-symposia presented in a "live" one-hour program, and then are archived for any time / any place access. You also receive access to articles, review questions, video, audio files, and a PDF of the presentation.

The AAPG course on “Reservoir Engineering for Petroleum Geologists” is designed for persons who wish to acquire a broad understanding of the factors that influence the production of oil and gas from reservoirs. It will be useful for geoscientists, land management specialists, managers and others with no previous training in reservoir engineering. This course is part of AAPG’s upcoming Fundamentals Education Conference, taking place November 9-13, in Houston, TX.

The AAPG course on “The Petroleum System: An Investigative Method to Explore for Conventional and Unconventional Hydrocarbons,” emphasizes how the petroleum system concept can be used to more systematically investigate how hydrocarbon fluid moves from the active source rock to a conventional or unconventional accumulation and thereby reduce risk. This course is part of AAPG’s upcoming Fundamentals Education Conference, taking place November 9-13, in Houston, TX.

The objective of the AAPG course on “Clay Minerals (Classification, Structure, Chemistry, Properties, Diagenesis) in Reservoir Evaluation” is to instill enough fundamental and applied information about clay minerals so that a person will know what questions are relevant when formulating a work flow for a project, when evaluating real data, or when trying to figure out what might have “gone wrong” during a project. This course is part of AAPG’s upcoming Fundamentals Education Conference, taking place November 9-13, in Houston, TX.
