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.

In addition to bypassed, stranded, or overlooked pay, there is also pay that was left behind because the well was perforated in the wrong zone, thanks to a phenomenon known as “pipe creep.” Teddy Pledger talks to us today about the potential for new production in wells in which the perfs might have missed the best part of the pay. It could be an excellent opportunity for enterprising geologists, especially if they team up with a petrophysicist.

Creativity and the innovative use of technology are hallmarks of successful geologists, and often the best engineering breakthroughs are possible because of the specialized knowledge and in-depth understanding of the earth. Welcome to an interview with Daniel Flores, an AAPG member who lives and works in Peru, who has developed an innovative slim-hole drilling and sampling tool that can work in many settings.

The “shale revolution” that occurred after the advent of universal implementation of horizontal drilling and massive, multi-stage hydraulic fracturing, was dramatically impacted by the collapse of oil and gas prices.

The Delaware Basin is the habitat of the fire-scorched Oil Phoenix, which rises from the ashes of a 3-year oil industry meltdown that has savaged companies that have held acreage, operations, and infrastructure in the costly resource plays of Colorado, Texas, Pennsylvania, North Dakota, and more.

It's not easy, but I'm going to tackle the question of "What happened to the Great Crew Change, and where are the geologists?"

We're in our third year of downturn, and yet there is quite a bit of activity in some plays such as the Permian Basin and the STACK play in the U.S. MidContinent and in Middle East fields. The reasons have to do with increased efficiency in drilling and completing horizontal wells, and the ability to recover reserves that were previously not recoverable.

Drone technologies and applications are quickly evolving and it is useful to take stock of the new equipment, sensors, and capabilities. What are some of the new directions and new developments that we are seeing with drones? What are some of the threats? Welcome to an interview with Kelly Coble of BCAeronautics in which he discusses how his company is incorporating changes to improve oil and gas exploration and production.

The pitches are starting to flow in! To be held in conjunction with the Annual Convention and Exhibition (ACE) on April 6 in Houston, Pitchapalooza features pitches, but with a twist. Each will feature an innovative use of technology, techniques, and scientific discoveries.

New analytical techniques that work with a massive volume of data of extremely wide variety are enabling geoscientists and engineers to understand the nature and extent of reservoirs in ways never possible before. Welcome to an interview with Kamal Hami-Eddine, Paradigm, who explains big data and deep learning as they are being used today in the petroleum exploration and production.
