We all know January will arrive far too quickly, so now is the time to start planning to attend the annual Global APPEX Prospect and Property Expo, set March 3-5 at its traditional home in the Business Design Centre in Islington, North London, just a stones’ throw from the center of the city.

The need for research to help understand the causes and mitigate induced seismicity was one of several topics at several recent Washington, D.C., workshops that explored what we know about the subsurface and its response to energy extraction technologies – and what research is needed for more efficient and safe energy development.

Three-D seismic surveys always suffer from poor sampling along at least one spatial dimension – that’s why many techniques have been developed over the years to interpolate data, in particular before final migration.

In many environmental areas, it seems the energy industry is often on the defensive and is forced to react to real or perceived environmental issues rather than employ forethought to anticipate the majority of issues that might arise from energy-related activities.

The call for abstracts is open for the next AAPG International Conference and Exhibition – a meeting that will be historic on many levels. The 2015 ICE will be held Sept. 13-16 in the beautiful city of Melbourne, Australia– the first time ever AAPG has used that city as a setting for ICE. The meeting will be hosted by the Petroleum Exploration Society of Australia.

When it comes to downhole geology, little things matter. Those “things” would include the realm of microseismic measurements, because as unconventional plays and hydraulic fracturing become the norm throughout the industry, the need for microseismic imaging grows in importance. Companies large and small are constantly developing, testing and using this technology, hoping to add value to today’s efforts.

The idea of using lasers for drilling into the earth has long been to the oil and gas industry what flying cars and hoverboards are to the general public – the stuff of science fiction and futuristic fantasy. As 2015 fast approaches (contrary to what we were promised in the “Back to the Future” movies) we haven’t quite cracked the code yet on flying cars and hoverboards, but there might be a consolation prize in the works: Laser drilling may actually become a reality.

What’s new in downhole geology, you ask? According to the advertising and press releases that are sent throughout the media, there’s a lot that’s new – more, in fact, than we could ever cover. But since this is our annual Downhole Geology issue, we thought we’d take a look at some of the latest advancements in drilling, well-logging and other downhole innovations rolled out in recent months by a few industry heavy-hitters.

After many months of harnessing mind-bending ideas, a Houston-based team of engineers, geologists and geophysicists has developed technology to monitor hydraulic fractures from the surface and wellbore simultaneously. Adding multiple dimensions to the monitoring process, they say, allows operators to more clearly understand drainage patterns of hydrocarbons in shale reservoirs and, more importantly, know with greater certainty where to drill the next well, how to optimize completions and maximize asset value.

Permanent Reservoir Monitoring, also known as Life-of-Field Seismic, using permanently installed seismic cables, has been characterized by a few key marker projects but did not reach mainstream status during its first ten years. However, since the start of its second decade we have witnessed a flurry of new projects and activity so far, both in the Americas (Brazil) and Europe (Norway). Within a time span of about three years, these efforts combined are already dwarfing the efforts of the first 10 years.
