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 Petroleum Geochemistry Toolkit for Petroleum Exploration and Development 2-day course, is designed to provide the geologist, geophysicist, and engineer with a general understanding of applied petroleum geochemistry and how it can be used in petroleum exploration and development. The petroleum systems analysis examines geological elements and processes that are essential for the petroleum accumulation.

Reservoir modeling has changed dramatically with the ability to incorporate new technologies and imaging techniques. Welcome to an interview with Randal Utech, Geology and Geophysics Advisor for Schlumberger, who discusses new developments in building effective reservoir models that can be used for decision-making and generating new ideas.

The Petroleum Economics is designed for New Energy Professionals. The course consist of lecture and exercises to assist the new industry energy professionals with understanding the principles of petroleum economics; including the value of money, quantifying financials risks in petroleum investments, rates of return, forecasting cash flows and the fundamentals of capital budgeting.

In an economic environment of constrained exploration and development budgets, surface geochemical techniques are often one of the tools of choice. Welcome to an interview with Rick Schrynemeeckers of Amplified Geochemical Imaging, who talks to us today about how and why hydrocarbon detection using surface geochemical methods has become so valuable.

Thinking about solutions at the nano-scale continues to be an area of opportunity for geoscientists, and it often requires new ways of thinking. Welcome to an interview with Monte Swan, whose experience in large-scale plate boundary research is complemented by his work in nano-scale environments where it is possible to find new ways to reduce the buildup of scale, paraffin, asphaltene, and more.

The Carbonate Depositional Systems course is an excellent introductory course that assumes no pre-existing knowledge. It is designed for earth scientists and engineers involved in exploration or production from carbonate rocks. It moves from basic principles to advanced ideas and case studies that will also help experienced geoscientists with practical aspects of carbonate depositional systems.

Basin-scale modeling can provide new insights into depositional processes in extremely complex deepwater and shelf environments. New models can identify previously overlooked or unenvisioned traps, and can help propose the existence of an entirely new reservoir. Welcome to an interview with John W. Snedden, Senior Research Scientist and Director of the Gulf Basin Depositional Synthesis Project at the University of Texas-Austin.

It is important for geologists to be polished and dynamic technical presenters, and Dr. David Pelton is committed to helping everyone achieve that goal by develop a series of four video tutorials for AAPG. Welcome to an interview with David Pelton, who shares tips and lessons learned in helping individuals engage audiences and be extremely effective communicators and presenters. At the end of the interview, you will see links to the four video tutorials.

Where is the oil? How much is there? and What is the best strategy for recovery?

These are a few of the questions that we'll answer at the Making Money with Mature Fields - Geosciences Technology Workshop, October 5-6, 2016, Houston, TX. The goal of this workshop is to review mature fields and to identify the amount and nature of oil that can be recovered, and to evaluate competing strategies for economically producing the remaining reserves. In addition to looking closely at fields, we will review new and improved technologies that may help revitalize reservoirs and overcome problems such as low pressure, paraffin, corrosion, and more.
