The AAPG course on "RQ Toolkit – Using Rock Data for Reservoir Quality Assessment" is designed to provide a general background in optimized reservoir quality assessment using rock data (core, SWC, cuttings, outcrops). This course is part of AAPG's upcoming Fundamentals Education Conference, taking place November 9-13, in Houston, TX.

The AAPG course on “Concepts, Models and Case Studies of Dolomitization”  summarizes the major advances and current controversies in dolomite research, and would be great for petroleum geologists who work in any type of carbonate hydrocarbon reservoir, especially those in working in dolomitized reservoirs. Material will be presented through a combination of lectures, case studies and class exercises.  This course is part of AAPG’s upcoming Fundamentals Education Conference, taking place November 9-13, in Houston, TX.

This course is part of AAPG’s upcoming Fundamentals Education Conference November 9-13, in Houston, TX. Geologists, geophysicists, and engineers seeking techniques for improved subsurface mapping and prediction of lithology distribution within siliciclastic reservoir intervals will find this course useful. The course teaches sequence stratigraphy as a tool for interpreting seismic and borehole data from slope, shelf, coastal, and/or continental deposits. An entry-level understanding of these depositional environments is anticipated.

Designed to expose geoscientists to the language and methodologies commonly employed by reservoir engineers to estimate oil and gas reserves, this course will include a brief review of reservoir rock properties, introduction to fluid properties, reservoir drive mechanisms, and commonly used techniques for estimating reserves including analogy, volumetric analysis, material balance, decline curve analysis, and computer simulation.

Those of us in the petroleum industry have been tracking the rapid expansion of oil and gas production from shales and in the process we may not have noticed the rapid expansion of renewable energy, especially wind. Read the latest Energy Information Administration (EIA) statistics.

China plans to significantly increase its natural gas consumption to help cut its appalling air pollution. But natural gas is still a small part of its energy mix. In addition, and to confound environmentalists, a significant part of China’s gas supply comes from Coal-to-Gas technology, which generates large volumes of greenhouse gas and other pollutants, but does allow China to deliver clean-burning gas to locations with severe air pollution.

Sequence stratigraphy provides a framework for the integration of geological, geophysical, biostratigraphic and engineering data, with the aim of predicting the distribution of reservoir, source rock and seal lithologies. It gives the geoscientist a powerful predictive tool for regional basin analysis, shelf-to-basin correlation, and characterization of reservoir heterogeneity. This course will examine the underlying geological principles, processes and terminology related to sequence stratigraphic interpretation. The strength of this course is the application of these basic principles to subsurface datasets in a series of well-founded exercises.
