“Oil fingerprinting,” as it’s called, is indispensable when there is commingled production from different formations.

The long-term projections have changed little in the year since this column last reported on the annual International Energy Agency (IEA) “World Energy Outlook,” but the tone is much different. Last year’s report was concerned about finding the investments to meet demand; now the world has surpluses of oil and gas and a booming renewables industry.

AAPG is the largest geoscience organization in the free world, and its members know more about frontier areas now being explored than anyone else. Part of our scientific responsibility is to act as advisers, not advocates for one political stand – either for or against climate change. AAPG needs to be part of the conversation.

Hydrocarbons in comets or asteroids likely were formed like those on Earth – biogenically, according to AAPG member Prasanta K. Mukhopadhyay. Yes, you read that correctly: "biogenically," as in, "arising from life" – in this case, extraterrestrial life.

The objective of the AAPG course on “Clay Minerals (Classification, Structure, Chemistry, Properties, Diagenesis) in Reservoir Evaluation” is to instill enough fundamental and applied information about clay minerals so that a person will know what questions are relevant when formulating a work flow for a project, when evaluating real data, or when trying to figure out what might have “gone wrong” during a project. This course is part of AAPG’s upcoming Fundamentals Education Conference, taking place November 9-13, in Houston, TX.

Sequence stratigraphy provides a framework for the integration of geological, geophysical, biostratigraphic and engineering data, with the aim of predicting the distribution of reservoir, source rock and seal lithologies. It gives the geoscientist a powerful predictive tool for regional basin analysis, shelf-to-basin correlation, and characterization of reservoir heterogeneity. This course will examine the underlying geological principles, processes and terminology related to sequence stratigraphic interpretation. The strength of this course is the application of these basic principles to subsurface datasets in a series of well-founded exercises.

Many factors and processes contribute to imparting an extraordinary complexity to carbonate reservoirs and source rocks. This unique complexity makes exploration and production of the huge petroleum resources hosted in carbonate sequences a very challenging task. This meeting follows the success of the conference held in Naples in April 2014 and aims at bringing together experts of different disciplines from the academia and the oil and gas industry. We invite you to share your experience on new approaches, new tools and new ways of integrating geological and geophysical information that can help in reducing the uncertainties related to the characterization and modeling of carbonate sequences and reservoirs.
