This fieldtrip has the potential of encouraging exploration activities in the region and trigger collaboration projects between industry and academia. The fieldtrip has the potential to gather people from different institutions and companies who might be able to identify problems and discuss potential solutions. This could be the inception of collaboration projects that will enhance the geological knowledge of the Sinú-San Jacinto Basin. The main objective of this field trip is to identify the main outcropping lithologies and structures in the northern part of the Sinú-San Jacinto onshore basin. Work Plan Barranquilla - Tubará - Juan de Acosta - Boca Tocino Beach - Totumo Volcano - Galerazamba: Structural styles and depositional environments of Cenozoic rocks What to Bring The field trip fee includes transportation, refreshment, lunch, and field guide. Participants may bring cash (in pesos) to purchase additional snacks, souvenirs and to pay the admission to the Totumo mud volcano (if times allow it). Participants should bring hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, and insect repellent as well as comfortable walking shoes. Those who plan to take a bath in the mud volcano should bring an old bathing suit, towel and sandals. The average temperature in Turabá and Totumo is approximately 27 degrees Celsius (80 degrees Faranheit), with an average humidity of 64 percent and UV index of 5.

Field Seminar
Bridgetown, Barbados
Friday, 3 March 2023, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

Date: 3 March 2023 Time: 8:00am - 5:00pm Trip Leaders: Xavier Moonan & Christopher Moseley Fee: Registration available during Short Course registration Fee Includes: Transportation, Lunch and Field Guide Explore spectacular geography and geology on a field trip to view turbidites and oil charged turbidites in Bathsheba and Greenlands Shale  Quarry, Barbados. Bathsheba’s beautiful, mineral rich white sand beaches are home to rock formations broken away from ancient coral reef that look like boulders on the shoreline. Greenlands Greenlands Shale Quarry provides the opportunity to observe active oil seeps.

Field Seminar
Lisbon, Portugal
Tuesday, 20 June 2023, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

Come along on this 1-day field seminar and tour outcrops in the Serra de Montejunto, just north of Lisbon and on the coast from Porto Novo to Paimogo. Instructors: Ricardo Pereira, PARTEX Oil and Gas & Instituto Dom Luiz Gil Machado, ChronSurveys Lda & Instituto Dom Luiz Fees: To be determined Limit: 20 Participants Includes: Hotel Ground Transportation Snacks and Refreshments Lunch and Dinner Guidebook Departure Time/Location 20 June 2023 8:30am SANA Metropolitan Hotel Note:Transportation to start point is not included in the costs of this trip. Please bring clothing for hot day time temperatures (sun hat/ sun glasses/ sun cream etc.). Participants must wear suitable and comfortable light trekking shoes. Aims To gain or increase an understanding of the tectono-sedimentary processes of continental extension and rifting supported by outcrop observations, with focus on deep-depositional marine systems. Discuss implications for prospective petroleum systems. Promote debate and nourish new insights between attendants. About the Field Trip The Lusitanian Basin records the proximal events of syn- to post rift evolution of the hyper-extended West Iberian Margin, showing some outstanding examples of the combined tectono-stratigraphic depositional systems. Here, the Late Jurassic reveals diverse aspects of mixed marine depositional systems including not only submarine fans and turbidites, but also the build-up of carbonate reefs and shoreface to fluvial clastic sequences. Throughout the field trip the different depositional aspects can be observed in detail to demonstrate how such depositional systems can vary in time and space. Observation of these outcrops allows a better understanding on how deep-water depositional systems can change within a sub-basin and help improving the understanding of reservoir properties.

Geotour the Alfama (Old Town) of Lisbon with Gil Machado and explore the link between the history of Lisbon and its geology. Geotour Leader: Gil Machado Departure Time/Location: 23 June 2023 9:30am TBA Fees: €60 Note: Comfortable walking shoes, water, sunglasses and hat are recommended Itinerary St. Luzia Belvedere Roman/Moorish Wall - We will be seeing several preserved stretches of the wall and how it was incorporated into the city growth St. George Castle – We will visit the outer part. Lisbon Cathedral - We will be seeing the architectural aspects of the church, the building stones and, if open to the public, archaeological finds of the old mosque that stood in the same place. St. Anthony Church Roman Theatre - We will have a glimpse of Roman Lisbon with the view over the theatre and we will discuss the building stones used (which derived from many parts of the empire). Chafariz de Dentro - We will see several historical fountains, old thermal baths and explore the hydrogeology of Lisbon and how water supply affected the development of the city.
