Education Update

American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)

There’s still time to register for an education conference that has proven itself valuable for all geosciences, no matter their age or experience.

The AAPG Winter Education Conference, set Feb. 11-15 in Houston at the Norris Conference Center, offers a smorgasbord of a curriculum where registration is for the entire week and the badge is transferable.

Courses also are priced individually and include refreshments and a buffet lunch each day, in addition to course notes. Member discounts are available.

The conference has four different tracks – Business, Unconventional Reservoirs, Seismic and Petrophysical – with multiple courses successively available in each track. Also, attendees can mix and match the courses as desired.

Transferable badges allow for multiple individuals from a company to receive training.

This year’s slate features six new courses – including three with a personal/business slant. Those are:

  • Thinking on Your Feet.
  • Creativity in Exploration.
  • Principles of Career Success as a Professional Geologist.

Other new WEC courses are:

  • Geologic Interpretation of Seismic Data.
  • Formation Evaluation of Thinly-Bedded Reservoirs.
  • Assessment of Unconventional Shale Resources Using Geochemistry.

Popular courses that are returning to the conference slate are:

  • Risk, Uncertainty and Decision-Making in Unconventional Resource Plays.
  • Seismic Amplitude Interpretation.
  • Seismic Geomorphology and Seismic Stratigraphy.
  • Basic Openhole Log Interpretation.
  • Quick Guide to Carbonate Well Log Analysis.

To register, or for further information, see the AAPG Web site or contact Debbi Boonstra with the AAPG education department.
