The Petroleum Geochemistry Toolkit for Petroleum Exploration and Development 2-day course, is designed to provide the geologist, geophysicist, and engineer with a general understanding of applied petroleum geochemistry and how it can be used in petroleum exploration and development. The petroleum systems analysis examines geological elements and processes that are essential for the petroleum accumulation.

Come for the GTW "Making Money with Mature Fields", and stay for a short course; either "The Petroleum Geochemistry Toolkit for Petroleum Exploration and Development" or "Carbonate Depositional Systems".  All three will explore new and innovative technologies and ideas to lend increased business opportunities now and into the future.

The goal of this workshop is to review mature fields and to identify the amount and nature of oil that can be recovered, and to evaluate competing strategies for economically producing the remaining reserves. In addition to looking closely at fields, we will review new and improved technologies that may help revitalize reservoirs and overcome problems such as low pressure, paraffin, corrosion, and more. We will identify companies willing to offer a “no money down” approach, or other forms of innovative financing. In addition to reviewing the technology, we will review case studies.

Due to low registrations, the optional Field Trip is cancelled. Organizers (Myanmar Geosciences Society) will correspond directly with those who have indicated interest.

The Myanmar Geosciences Society will offer a 4-day/3-night field trip to the Kalaw Basin to visit Mesozoic sediments of Kialaw Basin and view conspicuous surface geologic expressions of Sagaing Strike Slip Fault and Shan Boundary fault (Suture Zone), as well as various Paleozoic to Tertiary outcrops along the road sections.

The AAPG Division of Professional Affairs is providing new opportunities for professional development and networking through our new Playmakers forums. The primary purpose of these forums is to bring leaders from industry to present their ideas, successes and even failures in developing new plays. A secondary purpose is to provide training for professionals in prospect generation and presentations. The key to the success of Playmaker’s is most of the speakers are predominantly invited, technical experts on active plays

The paradigm of sequence stratigraphy has entered a new phase and these once revolutionary concepts are now applied in pre-drill exploration at ever-increasing resolution. The concepts also prove useful in production geology, especially in enhanced oil recovery efforts in previously abandoned fields.

The carbonate sequences that were deposited in the now exhumed Tethyan Ocean influence many aspects of our lives today, either by supplying the energy that warms our homes and the fuel that powers our cars or providing the stunning landscapes for both winter and summer vacations. They also represent some of the most intensely studied rock formations in the world and have provided geoscientists with a fascinating insight into the turbulent nature of 250 Million years of Earth’s history.

By combining studies from the full range of geoscience disciplines this presentation will trace the development of these carbonate sequences from their initial formation on the margins of large ancient continental masses to their present day locations in and around the Greater Mediterranean and Near East region.

The first order control on growth patterns and carbonate platform development by the regional plate-tectonic setting, underlying basin architecture and fluctuations in sea level will be illustrated. The organisms that contribute to sequence development will be revealed to be treasure troves of forensic information. Finally, these rock sequences will be shown to contain all the ingredients necessary to form and retain hydrocarbons and the manner in which major post-depositional tectonic events led to the formation of some of the largest hydrocarbon accumulations in the world will be demonstrated.
