The call for abstracts is open for the next AAPG International Conference and Exhibition – a meeting that will be historic on many levels. The 2015 ICE will be held Sept. 13-16 in the beautiful city of Melbourne, Australia– the first time ever AAPG has used that city as a setting for ICE. The meeting will be hosted by the Petroleum Exploration Society of Australia.

In many environmental areas, it seems the energy industry is often on the defensive and is forced to react to real or perceived environmental issues rather than employ forethought to anticipate the majority of issues that might arise from energy-related activities.

Construction continues for the new GE Global Research’s Oil & Gas Technology Center in Oklahoma City – part of the company’s three-year effort to triple R&D investment in the oil and gas industry. The $125 million facility “will be an incubator for new innovative technologies that will enable safe, efficient and reliable exploration, production, delivery and use of unconventional oil and gas.”

The goal of this course is to provide a review and an update on the status and lessons learned in the world’s major unconventional plays. The goal is to compare the approaches taken in the major plays, from reconnaissance exploration to acquisition of acreage, well siting, drilling program planning, completions, and production. In some cases, secondary recovery and re-entries will be discussed (in the case of steep decline curves and the need to restimulate the well). This course will review techniques, technologies, and prevailing philosophies.
