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
Abu Dhabi, UAE
Thursday, 30 January 2020, 8:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.

Date: January 30th, 2020 Time: 8am – 3pm Start/Return Point: Abu Dhabi Equipment Required: Sturdy boots/shoes, sun protection (hat, sunglasses, sun-cream, etc.). Fitness: Most places require light walking (100s meters / comparatively flat). Sabkha outcrop will involve some wading in ankle-deep water/mud. Field Trip Leaders: Hesham Shebl, Ibrahim Al Ali and Hani El Sahn Price: $85 – excluding 5% VAT Register now The modern carbonate-evaporite depositional environments along the Abu Dhabi shoreline and offshore Abu Dhabi belong to the few areas of the world where the geoscientist can observe the interplay between carbonate and evaporite sedimentation. The analysis of modern analogs is one of the few means by which high-resolution spatial complexity of stratigraphic systems can be described. If the horizontal dimensions of facies belts are less than the typical well spacing, modern analogs, together with seismic and production data help to construct realistic geologic and simulation models of subsurface reservoirs. Supratidal (sabkha) to intertidal (microbial mat), and lowermost intertidal to shallow subtidal (lagoon: skeletal-peloid tidal-flat) environments will be studied along the Abu Dhabi coastline in the vicinity of Al-Qanatir Island. Al-Qanatir Island: In the vicinity of the road to Al-Qanatir Island participants will be able to study a complete and undisturbed lateral facies succession of the upper supratidal to the shallow subtidal environments: Upper supratidal stranded beach ridges Topographic highs, some cm above the adjacent upper sabkha environment Upper sabkha (upper supratidal) Surface covered by polygonally-cracked halite crust Middle sabkha (middle supratidal) Surface covered by finely-crystalline, whitish anhydrite polygons Lower sabkha (lower supratidal) Surface covered by shiny, sparkling gypsum crystals Upper to lower intertidal microbial mat Crenulated or crinkled microbial mat above gypsum mush facies Blistered and pinnacle microbial mat Polygonal and tufted microbial mat Lowermost intertidal to shallow subtidal. Peloid-skeletal tidal-flat. This trip provides an insight into recent to modern evaporitic coastal depositional systems, that can be considered analogues to parts of the Mesozoic reservoir systems of the Middle East (e.g. intra-Arab & Hith anhydrites). Itinerary 8:00 am Depart for Sabkha outcrops at Al-Qanatir 9:00 am Arrive at Al-Qanatir Island 9:15 am Introduction Stop 1: Lateral Sabkha Sequence Stop 1a: Upper, Middle, and Lower Supratidal Sabkha Environment Stop 1b: Upper, Middle and Lower Intertidal Microbial Mat Environment Stop 1c: Lowermost Intertidal to Shallow Subtidal Peloid-Skeletal Tidal-Flat Environment Lunch 2:00 pm Depart Sabkha for Abu Dhabi Register now

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
Houston, Texas
Tuesday, 4 February 2020, 8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.

Unconventional hydrocarbon reservoirs, particularly shale-oil and shale-gas, are the future of the oil industry. It took the oil industry about 160 years, since the first oil well in the USA was drilled in 1859, to master oil production from conventional hydrocarbon reservoirs. Even with that we still face some challenges in deep water drilling, completion, and production as well as enhanced oil recovery from heavy oil carbonates, tar sands, and tight gas sands.

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
Abu Dhabi, UAE
Tuesday, 28 January Wednesday, 29 January 2020, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

Join us for the 3rd Edition: Carbonate Reservoirs of the Middle East workshop to be held in Abu Dhabi, UAE on 28-29 January 2020. It will give the opportunity for operators, service companies and researchers to discuss common challenges related to carbonate reservoirs, and their solution through the application of innovative technologies. Although, the topics will clearly encourage attendance from specialists based in the Middle East region, we also expect a global audience that includes promotors and practitioners of carbonate analysis. This is a reflection of its increasing role in the various stages of exploration and development: from exploration drilling to well performance in field development.
