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.

Carbonates of the Frontier Formation, Uinta Basin, contain certain physical, petrographic, and isotopic characteristics best explained by the presence of sea-floor methane seeps. These seeps record episodes of hydrocarbon generation and demonstrate a potentially viable petroleum system.

It’s good to be reminded of this one simple industry fact: “As a rule, geologists love to get out in the field to see classic and interesting outcrops that provide a better understanding of depositional facies, hydrocarbon reservoir systems, and anything related to geology.” That’s AAPG member Mark Longman, this year’s field trip chair for the upcoming AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition, set May 31-June 3 in Denver.

Recent debates have flared in the western United States over federal versus state ownership of public lands. Bills concerning the transfer of some public lands to states have been introduced in the U.S. Congress and many western state legislatures, though none have become law.

This may come as a surprise to a number of industry participants, but Utah is home to the largest oil sand resource in the United States. Largest, as in an estimated 16 billion barrels of bitumen and heavy oil.

A drone-generated map can translate to a million-dollar cost saving, or new fields or offsets with millions of dollars of new revenue. It's a great ROI, and the potential is just now beginning to be explored. For example, high-definition digital images can, depending on the sensors used, result in maps that show previously undetected structures and also surface geochemical anomalies, such as oil and gas micro-seeps or haloes. Welcome to an interview with Jason Pedersen, Space City Drones (https://www.spacecitydrones.com/), who discusses the new equipment, techniques, and opportunities with drones.

Grand Junction, Colorado, United States
28 September - 5 October 2016

Participants will learn through the use of spectacular outcrops, subsurface datasets, and stratigraphic modeling how these systems tracts and key surfaces (flooding surfaces and sequence boundaries) may be recognized.
