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
Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia
Wednesday, 3 February 2021, 7:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.

Date: 3rd February 2021 Time: 7am – 4pm Field Trip Leaders: Mohammed Masrahy and Fawaz Al Khaldi, Saudi Aramco Registration Fee: $95 Registration Deadline: 16th December 2020 Field Trip Description Analogues, especially ancient outcrop and modern analogues, have played a crucial role in improving the understanding of subsurface reservoir architectural elements. They provide important information on subsurface reservoir geobody size, geometry, and potential connectivity, which all contribute to better reservoir characterization, mainly in highly heterogeneous siliciclastic or carbonate reservoirs that require the integration and detailed analysis of petrophysics, facies, diagenesis, geometry, depositional environments and lateral and vertical variability. Subsurface reservoir models are limited by available geological data. Outcrop and modern analogs from comparable systems provide additional input to geological models of the subsurface. This field trip will provide valuable insights into the nature of this complexity. Aims and Objectives The field trip will comprise a field study of a range of continental clastic modern systems and marine carbonate ancient systems, and related sedimentary facies, each of which possesses attributes that are comparable in part to the subsurface deposits. Field trip attendees will gain knowledge about key competencies related to field geology such as measuring vertical sections, describing sedimentary structures and textures, describing sedimentary facies, identifying depositional environments, and linking sedimentological observations to subsurface reservoir modeling. One specific aim of this field trip is to emphasize that integrated reservoir characterization and modeling processes take into account actual depositional trends and the distribution of the sedimentary bodies. Intended Learning Outcomes This field trip will provide explanations and discussions of the following aspects: Basin age, mechanisms of tectonic development, and regional palaeogeographic setting. An introduction to techniques and criteria for the recognition of continental (fluvial and aeolian systems), shallow marine and carbonate related sedimentary facies in outcrop and modern system and discussions of the application of these techniques to the study of subsurface sedimentology and geological modeling. Discussions of the 1D, 2D and 3D facies architecture with particular consideration of the geometry and scale of key stratal bodies that have relevance for understanding subsurface hydrocarbon reservoirs. Discussion of the nature of autocyclic (intrinsic) interactions between competing sedimentary processes and consideration of the implications of these in terms of reservoir quality. Discussion of the nature of allocyclic (external) controls on sedimentary processes and consideration of the effects of temporal and spatial changes in these controls on the preserved succession (through introduction of sequence stratigraphic concepts). The significance of accurately determining the preserved geometry of reservoir successions and how to undertake correlations at the interwell scale. How to predict the 3D distribution of net versus non-net reservoir. How best to make region-wide predictions in areas for which palaeogeography is poorly constrained.

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
Virtual Short Course
Tuesday, 8 December Thursday, 10 December 2020, 8:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.

The lecture content provides a summary of the fundamentals of deep marine systems. The principal goal of the course is to provide subsurface interpreters with a methodology and hands on experience in seismic, logs, and core interpretation of deep-water deposits.

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
Virtual Workshop
Tuesday, 1 December Thursday, 3 December 2020, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

The HGS (Houston Geological Society) and EAGE (European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers) will host for the second time the Latin American Conference, between the 1st and the 3rd of December 2020. On this occasion, the HGS/EAGE will bring this event in an Online Format. The aim of the Technical Committee is to deliver to the audience, an integral and exceptionally enriched conference on Latin America.  Since the last two decades, the Latin American region has faced continuous development in energy resources, which has opened to increased investment. In recent years, the oil and gas industry has significantly increased exploration and production activities in the southern Caribbean margin, the Andean foreland, Guyana-Suriname offshore, deep-water Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay offshore, unconventional exploration in Argentina and Colombia, and the opening of exploration areas on the Pacific margin of South America. All this makes the second HGS/EAGE Conference on Latin America a perfect setting to keep up with the latest in Petroleum Geoscience for Conventional and Unconventional E&P, Natural Resources and Ore Geology, Machine learning present and future role in exploration, Seismic Imaging in E&P, that in overall, contribute to open to constructive dialogues on energy integration and prosperity of the region. We look forward to e-seeing you at the second Latin American conference hosted by the HGS/EAGE!
