GCAGS Sets 60th Annual Meeting in San Antonio

American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)

A varied technical program that examines both the onshore and offshore activity – and potential – of one of the world’s most prolific regions has been planned for this year’s AAPG Gulf Coast Association of Geological Societies annual meeting, which will be held Oct. 10-12 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio.

The theme for the meeting – GCAGS’ 60th annual – is “Weathering the Cycles.” Also meeting will be the Gulf Coast Section of SEPM.

The technical program will include a special daylong Stricklin Symposium on Tuesday, Oct. 12, titled “Forming and Filling the Gulf of Mexico Basin: Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous Tectonics, Source Rocks and Petroleum Systems.”

Other technical sessions include:

Organic Shales of the Gulf Coast – Controls On Reservoir Quality and Producibility.

Carbon Sequestration – Risks, Opportunities and Implications for EOR.

Water for A Growing Region – Geology, Water Quality and Resource Management.

Integrated Answers in Subsurface Exploration for Shelf-to-Ultradeep Opportunities.

Preparing for the Crew Change in the Geoscience Work Force.

The program also includes a opening session featuring AAPG President Dave Rensink and a keynote address by past AAPG president Scott Tinker, plus two luncheons:

Monday’s All-Convention Luncheon will feature John Hofmeister, founder and chief executive for Citizens for Affordable Energy, talking about “Why We Hate the Oil Companies: Straight Talk From an Energy Insider.”

Tuesday’s Divisions Luncheon will feature Lee Shephard, direction of the Institute for Conventional, Alternative and Renewable Energy at the University of Texas at San Antonio, talking about “Realizing America’s Energy Future.”
