Field Seminars

AAPG GTWs deliver up-to-date technical content to AAPG members and the industry. Their venues address “How are we doing it now?” through an examination of the latest practices illustrated with field case studies and examples. Their overriding focus is on the sharing of information among individuals knowledgeable in a topic in a highly interactive environment.

Attendees, practitioners and scientists have an opportunity to discuss real cases, issues, and experiences. The AAPG Geosciences Technology Workshops follow two tracks for discussion: research and application.

Field Seminar
Dhahran, Saudi Arabia
Tuesday, 3 December 2019, 1:30 p.m.–4:00 p.m.

Date: 3rd December Timing: 1:30pm – 4pm Field Trip Leader: Salvatore Di Simone, Saudi Aramco If you wish to register, please email Cora Navarro at This field trip will let you trace back the footsteps of the geologists who first surveyed Dhahran in search of oil, back in the 1930’s. There will be a stop by Dammam-7, the “Prosperity Well”, to discuss the history of oil exploration in Saudi Arabia. Additionally, attendees will get a chance to see the Cenozoic carbonate formations that outcrop in the area through easily accessible roadside stops.

Forums

AAPG Forum's goal is to maximize knowledge transfer by encouraging lively interaction and thoughtful consideration of experts' findings, experience, and insights. Practicing experts provide in-depth presentations on topics that have immediate bearing on success in exploration, development, and operations.

Short Courses

AAPG short courses offer a wealth of information in a short period of time. They are an effective and efficient way to learn about the industry. With so many to choose from, there’s something for everyone.

Short Course
Brisbane, Australia
Wednesday, 20 November 2019, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

Volumetric analysis of shale reservoirs is of prime importance in oil and gas industry. This course practically elaborates how different shale petrophysical parameters such as porosity, fluid saturation, and adsorbed gas, which are essential for volumetric analysis of shale reservoirs, can be estimated using well-log data. The major goal of the course is to show attendees how different shale petrophysical parameters such as porosity, fluid saturation, and adsorbed gas can be estimated. These petrophysical parameters are essential for volumetric analysis of shale reservoirs.

Geosciences Technology Workshops

AAPG Geosciences Technology Workshops (GTWs) deliver up-to-date technical content to AAPG members and the industry. Their agendas address the question “How are we doing it now?” through an examination of the latest practices as illustrated with case studies and field examples. The focus is on the sharing of information among knowledgeable individuals in a highly-interactive environment.

Attendees, practitioners and scientists have an opportunity to discuss real cases, issues, and experiences. GTWs follow two tracks for discussion: research and application. Joint workshops are produced in cooperation with other societies, expanding their scope to an even broader spectrum of participants and geoscience topics.

Workshop
Houston, Texas
Friday, 22 November 2019, 1:00 p.m.–5:00 p.m.

Date: 11/22/2019 to 11/22/2019 Time: 1PM to 5PM Venue: The Cannon Houston Location Address: 1334 Brittmoore Rd, Houston, TX 77043 Location City/State: Houston, Texas This course is for people without a background in machine learning, software engineering, or data science. The purpose of the course is to help people who are immersed in the oil and gas industry to gain a practical understanding of what unstructured data is, what value there is in it, how it can be utilized, and why this is now relevant. Much of unstructured data mining is based on machine learning, so this course also seeks to instill memorable intuitive understanding of machine learning. This course does not require any use of computers. The course consists of these segments: The differences between structured and unstructured data will be explored, and emphasis will be placed on why unstructured data is crucial to firms in the oil and gas industry. The drastic inefficiencies created by mismanagement of unstructured data will be given context by the growth in private equity backing, the lower hydrocarbon price environment, the proliferation of data sources, and the aftermath of the big crew change. Attendees will engage in an interactive simulation of a typical oil and gas workflow involving structured and unstructured data. Incumbent solutions, including data file structuring projects and off-the-shelf enterprise search tools, will be considered. Each will be evaluated based on its ability to return accurate and relevant information to users in a useful format and at speeds that do not inhibit seamless operations. Attendees will engage in an interactive simulation of each of the two typical incumbent solutions to handle unstructured data. The basics of machine learning will be explained in simple and intuitive terms, including a few examples. Attendees will engage in an interactive application of machine learning to solve a problem. This application will be a simulation not requiring the use of any electronics. Three case studies will be explored showing results and highlighting value added of a new (to oil and gas) class of solution. The first study involved implementation of a tool to help workers navigate historical reports to extract knowledge to make better decisions in real time. The second study involved implementation of a tool to serve as a surrogate for a retiring subject matter expert so that less experienced employees could still get good answers to questions. The third case study has not been completed, yet, but it involves simply using a tool to automatically fill out missing fields in a database from data scattered across unstructured reports.
