It is a little over 25 years since the Iagifu 2-X well drilled by Niugini Gulf Oil discovered Papua New Guinea’s first commercial oil field – the Kutubu field, which was put into production in 1992 by Chevron Niugini Pty Ltd. after they acquired the assets of Gulf Oil.

The Arkoma Basin has long been a popular drilling focus for the industry. As the saying goes, everything “old” is new again – and the Arkoma is no exception.

If the university-sponsored geologic field camp is to survive and prosper, some believe it will only do with an infusion of international geoscience students.

Headquarters staff has been in the process of reviewing AAPG’s strategic plan in preparation of updating our business plan. It was good to see that AAPG members and staff have been very successful in reaching many of the goals set in the original strategic plan.

Depending on the geological history and structural framework, the spatial distribution of natural fractures may be inhomogeneous and erratic. Statistical approaches involving the extrapolation of limited direct observations often fail to encapsulate the variability within these sub-surface fracture systems. Understanding of the relationship between the shape or strain history of a surface and observed fractures provides predictive strength in areas with limited direct observations.

This structural field course in the Front Ranges of the Canadian Rockies focuses on relating outcrop to seismic expressions of compressive structural styles that are common in fold-and-thrust belts and deepwater passive margins (toe thrust belts) worldwide. Participants will recognize common types of structures in fold-and-thrust belts, apply fault-related folding concepts to interpret these structures, identify petroleum traps and their major structural risk elements, and recognize similarities between styles of trap and reservoir-scale deformation.

This presentation will show where there are cases of missing sections, but none of them can be attributed to normal faulting.
