Many companies are taking a pro-active stance toward new technology and have assembled teams to scout and implement new techniques and technologies in their operations. Please meet Mike Party, part of the Emerging Technology Team at Hess. Mike speaks to us today about the quest for the breakthrough technologies. Mike will be presenting at AAPG's Success with Difficult Unconventionals, Nov 12-13, in Houston.

AAPG Event 28 February, 2020 Student, Structure 8:00 AM 5:00 PM 24 October, 2019
 
28-29 February 2020

Date: Friday 28 – Saturday 29 February 2020 (2 days)
Instructor: Ken McClay, Professor of Structural Geology

Overview:

This 2 day short course will focus firstly on the development of extensional basins, rifts and passive margins followed by inversion of these systems and the formation of thick and thin-skinned thrust belts. Extensional fault geometries, segmentation and linkages will be analysed as well as the architectures of extensional basins illustrated with field examples from the Gulf of Suez and Northern Red Sea as well as seismic examples from rift basins and passive margins. Inversion systems will be discussed in the context of how basement rift fault systems influence and control inversion geometries. Thick and thin-skinned orogenic systems will be examined in the context of inverted basins and thin-skinned thrust systems using examples from PNG, the Pyrenees, the Zagros fold and thrust belt and other systems. Characteristic structural styles and hydrocarbon systems in these terranes will be will be copiously illustrated using field, seismic, physical sand box and numerical models.

Who should attend:

Final year Geoscience students; starting geoscientists in the petroleum industry as well as mid- senior level geoscientists needing modern concepts of structural geology for the petroleum industry.

Instructor’s Profile

Ken McClay, Professor of Structural Geology, - BSc Honours degree in Economic Geology from Adelaide University, - MSc in Structural Geology & Rock Mechanics and PhD in Structural Geology from Imperial College, University of London, and DSc from Adelaide University: Emeritus Professor in the Department of Earth Sciences, Royal Holloway University of London and an Adjunct Professor in the Australian School of Petroleum at Adelaide University.

From 1991 until December 2018 he was Professor of Structural Geology and Director of the Fault Dynamics Research Group at Royal Holloway University of London. He carried out wide-ranging research on all aspects of applied structural geology. This has involved field research in NW Scotland, the Spanish Pyrenees, Indonesia, Yemen, Iran, Australia, Canada, USA, Chile, Argentina, Greenland, Norway, Turkey, Ethiopia and Gulf of Suez and Red Sea Egypt. His research interests include extensional, strike-slip, thrust and inversion terranes. He ran a large experimental analogue modelling laboratory for the simulation of fault structures and sedimentary architectures at Royal Holloway. He has written a book for mapping structures in the field, edited five major volumes on thrust tectonics, and has published widely on structural geology and tectonics and he is a consultant for the international petroleum industry and has given many short courses for the industry.

Ken focuses on field analogues for geological structures to illustrate structural styles and mechanical stratigraphy, on analogue modelling of faults and fold systems and on seismic interpretation of sub-surface structures. Current major research projects include tectonic evolution of the Northern Chilean Andes, fold and thrust belts in accretionary terranes, tectonic evolution of deep-water fold belts as well as extensional tectonics and structural evolution of the NW Shelf of Australia.

Join a SIG

 
The function of the Visiting Geoscientist Program SIG is to provide college and university students worldwide a balanced picture of geosciences in the petroleum, energy minerals, and environmental industries; provide information about careers in the geosciences; present a positive image of a geoscience professional; and encourage geoscience career options for young scientists of high caliber. These goals will be achieved through direct student contact during college and university visits by active geoscientists. To maintain active status as a VG, each committee member must complete at least one visit per fiscal year. This program is funded through the generosity of the Visiting Geoscientists, their companies, the AAPG Foundation and AAPG.

Join a Committee

 

The Committee will strive to increase the knowledge and appreciation of geoscience among students and teachers. The Committee plans to expand participation in the Rocks in Your Head program through increased funding from the AAPG Foundation. The Committee manages the Earth Science Teacher of the Year Award and Teachers’ Days at national and Section meetings. The Committee assists and coordinates earth science and energy programs of national youth organizations, such a Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and 4H. The committee coordinates these activities with other earth science organizations, such as AGI.
