Located in the Sichuan Basin, site of one of China’s premier shale plays, Chengdu University of Technology, in collaboration with Southwest Petroleum University, and State Key Laboratory  of Oil and Gas Reservoir Geology and Exploitation, and sponsorship from Geological Society of China and the Chinese Petroleum Society, brought together geoscientists and engineers from around the world and the country for the 7th International Symposium on Unconventional Petroleum Exploration and Exploitation.

The options for female geologists might not have matched those of their male counterparts in the 1930s and ‘40s, but for some women – they were opportunities nonetheless – and they deserved chasing. Helen Laura Foster, an AAPG member who is now 94, took full advantage of those opportunities.

The lessons taken from U.S. shale gas successes hold major implications for China’s energy future, according to researchers at the Energy and Geoscience Institute at the University of Utah. The similarities and potential are explored in a paper to be presented at the AAPG International Conference and Exhibition this month in Istanbul, Turkey.

Saharan fields Hassi Messaoud (10 Gb reserves, discovered in 1956) and Hassi R’Mel (100 Tcf gas plus 2.4 Gb condensate reserves, discovered in 1957) are by far the largest oil field and the largest gas field in Africa

The discovery of giant oil fields in new basins typically occurs only after multiple exploration periods and numerous unsuccessful wells. The first explorers might or might not have the right technical concepts, but for various reasons they fail to find the big prize. This pattern was repeated prior to the discovery of the giant (in place) Liuhua 11-1 Field, Pearl River Mouth Basin, South China Sea.

Make plans to attend an AAPG Geosciences Technology Workshop (GTW) to be held in Wellington between April 21-23, 2015. The workshop will comprise four half-day sessions focused on broad depositional environment settings. The aim is to better understand modern depositional systems, and how they can help us to better interpret ancient petroleum reservoirs.
