Brines currently being produced in the East Poplar and Northwest Poplar oil fields, Williston Basin, Montana, are of two chemically and isotopically distinct types. The solute chemistry and Sr composition of group I brines are similar to those that contaminated the groundwater.

Pervasive deformation band arrays delay water breakthrough and enhance sweep when the contrast of permeability between them and the host rock is at least of three orders of magnitude, resulting in larger final produced volumes and higher total recovery.

The solution to heavy oil and paraffin-clogged mature wells can often by heat, but heat is hard to economically introduce into a well. Welcome to an interview with Richard Snow, Chief Scientist at PyroPhase, whose new technologies are designed to economically heat the reservoir and allow the oil to flow.

Geoscientists have more opportunities than ever to make working with drones and drone data part of their skill set and services rendered. But, there are often a number of misconceptions, especially when getting started. Welcome to an interview with Michael Nash, who provides a reality check about drones and drone capabilities.

Please note that the drones references are the small drones used by the general public, and are not the large UAVs used by the military and other entities.

Petroleum Economics is one of the "must know" areas of the petroleum industry which can have a great impact on the professional success of geoscientists and engineers. Larry Chorn, Ph.D., a well-respected expert in petroleum economics talks to us today about his experience in the industry and how and why petroleum economics matters now more than ever.

The primary goal of the AAPG Astrogeology Committee is to emphasize the use of geosciences in the development of off-world exploration energy and other natural resources for development in the foreseeable future. This is under the guidance and input provided by previous NASA geologist astronauts, Dr. Harrison “Jack” Schmitt and Dr. James “Jim” Reilly and by industry professionals.

The goal of this event is to bring together new technologies and developments in both exploring for new frontiers and developing known provinces in both deepwater and shelf environments. The event brings together geology, geochemistry, engineering, and geophysics.

Proposed topics:
  • Depositional environments
  • Basin modeling and new frontiers
  • Complex depositional systems
  • Imaging and developments in seismic interpretation
  • Salt behavior and new techniques for imaging
  • New technologies in data acquisition and processing
  • Geochronological determinants, including detrital zircon
  • Reservoir characterization and connectivity
  • Borehole stability and pressure modeling
  • Beomechanical modeling and understanding pressure in reservoirs
  • Assessment phase and improvements
  • Planning reservoir development
  • Tying reservoir measurements with characterization and production planning
