AAPG has a proud history of trailblazing geologists who have brought scientific inquiry, innovative mindsets, and a desire to work with teams to find new reservoirs and bring needed energy to the people of the world. Welcome to an interview with Dr. Yongsheng Ma, President and Chief Geologist, Sinopec Co., Ltd., who talks to us today about his formative experiences and valuable lessons learned. (Please note that Dr. Ma’s family name is Ma, which usually is placed first in Chinese publications, such as in President Ma Yongsheng.)

The one day field trip to Jabal Hafit is tailored to offer participants the opportunity to study the structural style and fracturing of carbonate rocks analogous to reservoir units of the globally important UAE oil province. The clear exposure of these carbonate rocks in this tectonically complicated area provides a significant opportunity to study and explain the structural style and deformation history of the region, with emphasis to study fractures pattern and fracturing mechanism with relation to the paleostress and in‐situ stresses, and the link to fractures hydraulic conductivity.

The proposed locations to be visited on this fieldtrip will demonstrate the stratigraphic relationship of the various rock units and their fracture systems that have been developed during long geological deformation. There are significant similarities between these exposed rocks and those units seen in the Abu Dhabi oil fields by means of depositional characteristics and fracture system and fracture related diagenesis (cementation/host rock alteration) with its impact on sealing potential.

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 mission of the AAPG Women's Network (AAPGWN) committee is to increase participation and advancement of women in Earth sciences and the Energy Industry, with an emphasis on education, outreach, support, leadership development, and ultimately retention. The AAPGWN Committee will interact with women in Earth Science, their male peers and employers, educational institutions, and professional societies to accomplish this mission.
