Rocky Mountain, Eastern Section Meetings Set This Month

American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)

September will be a busy month for the AAPG Sections – two groups will be holding their annual meetings, both in locales that boast geologic industry history and plenty of entertainment opportunities.

Rocky Mountain Section Annual Meeting

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a former oilman and current member of AAPG, will be the All-Convention luncheon speaker at this year’s Rocky Mountain Section meeting, set Sept. 9-12 at the Two Rivers Convention Center in Grand Junction, Colo.

It is the first time Grand Junction has hosted the annual RMS event.

The meeting theme is “Vintage Geology – Perfectly Aged,” and the technical sessions will include updates on the most recent work on resource plays across the region, the sedimentary and structural architecture of the latest plays in the Rockies and the impact and future of energy minerals.

Some of the specific session topics are:

  • New Ideas in Piceance Creek and Uinta Basins.
  • Resource Plays – Exploration and Exploitation.
  • Tight Oil and Gas Reservoirs – Where, How and Why?
  • Colorado Plateau Geology and Paleontology: A Tribute to

Robert G. Young.

The All-Convention luncheon will begin at 11:45 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 10.


Eastern Section Annual Meeting

The Eastern Section’s 41st annual meeting returns to Cleveland, the site of the Section’s very first meeting, Cleveland, for a gathering built on the theme “Classic Rocks – 153 Years of Performance.”

The meeting will be held Sept. 22-26, and the technical program offers short courses, field trips and a technical program that centers on the Section’s four major basins.

Technical sessions will include:

  • Case Histories and Development of the Marcellus Shale Reservoirs.
  • Horizontal Wells: Design, Drilling, Completion and Fracturing Techniques.
  • Regional Geologic Concepts and new Plays in the Appalachian and Illinois Basin.
  • Trenton-Black River Exploration and Production in Michigan and Indiana.
  • Exploration and Production of Shale Source/Reservoir Rocks.

Entertainment at the meeting includes a night at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, with full access to the museum.
