Looking at a formation as a source rock, then turning around and considering it a viable reservoir requires you to be able to shift your thinking and to analyze a great deal of data in a new way. If you don’t, you risk not understanding the nature of “sweet spots” and how to accurately complete or use reservoir characterization studies.

It has a new name, a new energy and a new lineup of experts, all primed to spread geoscience knowledge around the world. “It” is AAPG’s newly named Global Distinguished Lecture Program – emphasis on the “global” – which dates back to 1941 but continues to be the Association’s flagship initiative for offering the latest in geologic science to AAPG affiliated geological societies and universities.

Gain a better understanding on how to evaluate, plan and make decisions with regards to unconventional resource assessment, testing, and development planning. This course oriented towards the recognition &characterization of uncertainty in unconventional reservoirs will dive well beyond tactical number-crunching into analysis, decision-making, strategy, portfolio management, and a rudimentary understanding of risk analysis

Ireland’s Atlantic basins harbor the potential for major oil and gas discoveries in water depths ranging from 150 to more than 2,500 meters, according to the country’s Energy and Natural Resources office. Even so, exploration activity in the Irish offshore has been sporadic over the past four decades.

DL Abstract

There has been a revival in the interest in hydrocarbon source rock characterization associated with the growing interest in unconventional resources where these fine-grained sediments represent the complete petroleum system. To-date, the primary focus has been on marine unconventional systems. Consider, however, if lacustrine systems may represent future unconventional opportunities in areas where the conventional resource-base is dominated by lacustrine-sourced oil. There are a number of key differences in the nature of these systems that should be considered when assessing.

DL Abstract

Conventional hydrocarbon resources have been associated with pre-Devonian petroleum systems across the globe. Although individual accumulations can be quite significant, the relative importance of pre-Devonian-derived oils is limited compared to the global conventional resource-base. With growing interest in unconventional resources, the relative importance of these systems is expected to increase as plays develop.

DL Abstract

With the growing global attention in shale gas and shale oil plays there has been a renewed interest in source rock geochemistry. This has resulted in a number of key questions concerning source characterization, including: 1) how much internal variability might be anticipated; 2) what is the potential impact of the variability on resource assessment; and 3) how best may a source be sampled to "fully" understand its variability?

Despite intensive research, the origin of dolomite remains subject to considerable controversy. This is partly because some of the chemical and hydrological conditions of dolomite formations are poorly understood. Here's a great chance to see an overview of dolomite research and highlight its major advances and controversies in recent years. This will be done by revisiting specific case studies and implementing newly developed concepts and models.

This course provides a rigorous overview of how and where organic-rich rocks are deposited, how they evolve into oil- and gas-generating source rocks, how the porosity systems evolve with thermal maturation, and the petrophysical properties of shale-gas and shale-liquid fine-grained reservoirs.

Here is an introduction to the tools and techniques that geologists and geophysicists use to locate gas and oil, that drillers use to drill the wells and that petroleum engineers use to test and complete the wells and produce the gas and oil. Exercises throughout the course provide practical experience in well log correlation, contouring, interpretation of surface and subsurface, contoured maps, seismic interpretation, well log interpretation, and decline curve analysis.
