One of the challenges confronting carbon dioxide capture and sequestration (CCS) in geologic media over extended periods of time is determining the caprock sealing capacity. If the pressure of supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2) injected in the repository overcomes the caprock sealing capacity, leaking of scCO2 may enter other porous formations, compromising the storage formation, or even may go back to the atmosphere, and thus the process of sequestration becomes futile.

As you probably already know, winners of the Grover E. Murray Memorial Distinguished Educator Award love students, education and helping to train the next generation of geologists. To that extent, winner James O. Puckette from Oklahoma State University fits right in. But there is something else, too, in his wheelhouse.

After the city of Denton, Texas, in the Barnett Shale voted to ban hydraulic fracturing last November, the Texas legislature shifted into high gear to ensure no other Texas town would follow Denton’s renegade move.

The Anadarko Basin granite wash play has been considered difficult to interpret both geologically and geophysically. Consequently, the application of seismic attribute analysis to mid-continent washes has not been widely published.

This year's AAPG Woodford Shale Forum on 12 May 2015 in Oklahoma City, promises to be very insightful to geologists and engineers. Included is a special Entrepreneurship session focusing on being successful in the oil industry. Learn about special pricing for students and scholarships for individuals who have been laid off.

Education Conference Course

Houston Texas United States 09 November, 2015 10 November, 2015 17725
 
Houston, Texas, United States
9-10 November 2015

This course summarizes the major advances and current controversies in dolomite research.

Short Course

Tulsa Oklahoma United States 06 October, 2015 08 October, 2015 13608
 
Tulsa, Oklahoma, United States
6-8 October 2015

Here is an introduction to the tools and techniques that geologists and geophysicists use to locate gas and oil, that drillers use to drill the wells and that petroleum engineers use to test and complete the wells and produce the gas and oil. Exercises throughout the course provide practical experience in well log correlation, contouring, interpretation of surface and subsurface, contoured maps, seismic interpretation, well log interpretation, and decline curve analysis.
