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
Windhoek, Namibia
Friday, 3 June Monday, 6 June 2022, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

Sold Out - Should you wish to join the waitlist for the field trip, in case of any cancellations, please email Mahenoor Malik, [email protected] Ansgar Wanke Raydel Toirac Field Trip Leaders: Ansgar Wanke, Reconnaissance Energy Namibia Raydel Toirac, Pioneer Oil & Gas Consulting Fee: $1380 Fee Includes: 4 Days/ 3 Nights transportation, meals and lodge accommodations Field Guide Book - provided at the beginning of the field trip Booking Deadline: 28th April 2022 Participant Limit: 12-15 Registration: Register during workshop registration Overview Fieldtrip Objectives The objectives of the fieldtrip are the following: Introduction to the Upper Carboniferous - Permian lower Karoo sequence (Dwyka and Ecca Groups) of southern Namibia with emphasis on the glacial – to post-glacial transition and associated source rock deposition. Observe a sequence of basaltic flows (Kalkrand floodbasalts - Drakensberg Group) interbedded with siliciclastics as onshore analogues to reservoirs offshore Namibia. Relate outcrop to seismic scales of observation. Give an overview to the Ediacaran – Early Cambrian Nama Basin. Demonstrate the sequence architecture of the Kuibis subgroup using excellent exposures in the Zaris sub-basin along the Zebra River and at the Driedoornvlagte Ridge. Relate outcrop to seismic scales of observation. Show the magnificent star dunes at Sossusvlei as an effective barrier to the present-day Tsauchab River. Discuss the Cretaceous Tsauchab River as a main sediment source for the Lüderitz basin offshore Namibia. Itinerary 3rd June Depart from the Ministry of Mines & Energy in Windhoek (meeting 9h30 at entrance) Travel from Windhoek to Hardap (ca 300km) Overnight Hardap Resort (Namibia Wildlife Resorts) Geology: Weissrand and Hardap Karoo 4th June Drive to Fish River at Ganigobis and M98 Bridge (ca 190km) Drive to Maltahöhe (ca 260km) Overnight Maltahöhe Hotel Geology: Lower Karoo Outcrops along Fish River; Nama Fish River Subgroup and bitumen shows 5th June Drive to Sesriem and Sossusvlei (ca 230km) Drive to Zebra River Lodge (ca 145km) Overnight Zebra River Lodge Geology: Sossusvlei Star Dunes and Vlei, Lower Nama Group Omkyk Member Reefs and Grainstones – Sequence Strat 6th June Drive to Windhoek (ca 330km) Geology: Driedoornvlagte Reef Complex (Nama Group) Return to the Ministry of Mines & Energy late afternoon to early evening (approx. 18h00). What to Bring and What to Consider Travel dates to consider – arrival one day prior to the field trip (2nd June) Fees include meals and transportation from 3rd – 6th of June. Water will be provided during drives. Snacks are not included. Fees include accommodation for the nights of 3rd, 4th, and 5th of June Be equipped for walks in rocky terrain. Skies are usually clear in June; therefore sun-protection is recommended (hat, sunglasses, sunscreen) June is winter season in Namibia. Despite warm and hot days, night temperatures can fall close to freezing temperature. A warm jersey should be handy for the evenings and mornings. Air humidity is usually very low in June and dehydration can occur quickly. Bring a water bottle and drink regularly. Shopping opportunities are limited during the tour, only at the first day (3rd June) we will pass by a decent supermarket. Best you buy your essentials prior to the tour. Cancellation Policy Cancellations received on or before the 27th April 2022 will be charged $100. cancellations received after the 27th April will be charged the full amount.

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
Windhoek, Namibia
Wednesday, 8 June 2022, 10:40 a.m.–12:40 p.m.

Paul Bellingham Workshop Leader: Paul Bellingham, Ion Geophysical Time: 10:40 am - 12:40 pm Registration: Only registered participants for the event will be able to participate in this workshop A hands-on seismic workshop during which you will use conjugate seismic data from the South Atlantic as the basis to investigate the basin architecture and tectonostratigraphic development. We will investigate the Namibian Atlantic margin in the context of its South American conjugate. The first pair of sections will be from the Orange basin across to Uruguay and the second pair will be from the Walvis basin to the Pelotas basin in Brasil. Using these example lines from ION’s deep, mega-regional Basin SPAN seismic data you will be able to directly interpret the full crustal structure and the stratigraphy from shelf to the distal setting. After an initial presentation, attendees will split into small working groups and spend time interpreting some of the key features on a set of sections and will then convene to discuss as a group what can be inferred about the structure, development, environments of deposition and implications for the petroleum system in the areas. We will also put these discussions in the context of the exploration results in the different areas.
