Vertical and lateral facies distribution of the Boquillas Formation (outcrop analog of the Eagle Ford, west Texas) is controlled by sediment productivity under the influence of bottom currents below storm-wave base.  Grainstone bodies in the middle member of the Boquillas are sedimentary.

Quantitative seismic geomorphology techniques are applied to the middle Frio, south Texas, to quantify the morphometric parameters necessary for predictive geologic models of fluvial reservoirs.  This study seeks to quantify the geometric variability of the middle Frio channel belts.

After a four-decade career as an exploration geologist, Dick Stoneburner will receive AAPG’s Norman H. Foster Outstanding Explorer Award. The award is given in recognition of distinguished and outstanding achievement in exploration by AAPG members who have shown a “consistent pattern of exploratory success.”

Explorer ProTracks

 

Conditions may presently be far from ideal in our industry, but they will get better. Downturns are always followed by recovery and growth. We take these times to learn, develop and improve, while at the same time, hanging on for dear life. Every now and then though, we need to stop, take a breath, forget our troubles and have a good time.

Houston, Texas, United States
1-2 December 2016

Welcome to a workshop in which we will bring together experts, equipment providers, robotics experts, and others knowledgeable in a wide range of commercial drone usage, which includes monitoring in the oil industry, digital outcrop surveying, safety and security monitoring, utility inspection, real estate, agriculture, construction, environmental protection, and more.

The goal of this workshop is to review mature fields and to identify the amount and nature of oil that can be recovered, and to evaluate competing strategies for economically producing the remaining reserves. In addition to looking closely at fields, we will review new and improved technologies that may help revitalize reservoirs and overcome problems such as low pressure, paraffin, corrosion, and more. We will identify companies willing to offer a “no money down” approach, or other forms of innovative financing. In addition to reviewing the technology, we will review case studies.
