For the oil industry, the most worrisome news coming out of the Middle East doesn’t involve geopolitics. It’s well known by now that Iran wants to increase production by at least 500,000 barrels of oil per day as the lifting of international sanctions allows it to resume crude exports. But Iran isn’t alone.

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.

Although historically focused on its birthplace in North America, AAPG is growing rapidly in several international locations, including one that is in the heart of the oil industry – the Middle East.

The unpresented success of Unconventional Plays in North America has triggered global interest in exploring these tight reservoirs in various basins of the world. As operators aggressively pursuing exploration and development of unconventional plays new challenges have emerged as a result of these activities. Exploitation of these unconventional resources revealed its economic potential as a source of energy to the increasing demand for energy regionally and globally. Recent exploration and drilling operations in various basins have shown some increase in the number of unconventional wells.

This two-day workshop will be dedicated to capturing best practices and lessons learned in the field of knowledge management, especially in the context of a changing oil market. The upstream organizations within the Middle East’s NOCs, IOCs and service providers are paying close attention to the issue of knowledge management due to the major demographic shift which has been dubbed as the “Great Crew Change”.
