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.
This course will allow beginner or intermediate professionals to provide with daily geochemical solutions to executional E&P projects from exploration to WIM/production and environmental footprints issues.
This course focuses on the assessment of unconventional plays and the identification of initial well locations within them.
The course is designed for both graduate students majoring in applied geophysics and more experienced geophysicists working in research, technical service, or exploration. Attendees are expected to be familiar with the basics of seismic wave propagation and data processing.
This course is an overview of carbonates from geology to seismic interpretation, with particular emphasis on karst topography and seismic expression thereof.
The workshop objective is to discuss the main challenges of stimulation design and how modeling tools can be used to aid the design.
This course will review the theory of fracture-injection/falloff testing, the design of DFITs, and interpretation of DFIT data using both straight-line and type-curve methods
Unconventional gas reserves are transforming energy outlooks around the world. This course introduces workflow and reviews methods for performing quantitative ratetransient analysis of fractured vertical and multi-fractured horizontal wells (MFHWs), produced from unconventional (low-permeability) gas and light oil reservoirs, including shales.
This course will discuss the Huff-n-Puff gas EOR process specifically, but will also address relevant fundamentals of displacement-based gas EOR methods (miscibility, vaporization, and displacement) in tight unconventionals.
This course provides a comprehensive methodology for the diagnosis, analysis, and forecasting of well production data in unconventional resources. An extensive evaluation of the diagnostic tools for assessing data viability, checking data correlation along with flow regime identification is presented.
Geomechanics – in both completions and drilling operations – has become a critical technology in the development of Unconventional Plays. This course presents the basics of oil field geomechanics and its application to unconventional developments, specifically, the role of stress, pore pressure, mechanical properties, and natural fractures on hydraulic fracturing operations.
This one-day session will include a view of best practices for Carbon Management with a focus on fugitive methane reduction. It will include global and local examples of Carbon Regulations, give tools for de-risking regulatory compliances and field-proven methane reduction technology cases.
Data driven modeling is becoming a key differentiation to unlock higher recoveries from existing fields as well as identify new opportunities. In this course, we will be introducing advanced analytical tools and techniques - machine learning and data mining algorithms used to identify of trends and patterns in any given dataset and predict future trends.
Designed to give geoscientists a better understanding of the risk factors associated with unconventional “shale” hydrocarbon reservoirs, based on the geology, mineralogy, organic-richness, hydrocarbon content, and the reservoir rock mechanical properties, providing a core for integration and collaboration of many disciplines such as geology, geophysics, geochemistry, and earth modeling as well as drilling, completion, reservoir stimulation and production engineering.
In times of distressed operatorship, the geologic discipline often gets placed on the back burner. This course is designed for the geologist to use data at hand to directly impact the bottom line at your company using the humblest and commonest of data sets.
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.
The course will focus on a Machine Learning workflow in the upstream Oil and Gas domain to generate synthetic Gamma-Ray Logs by applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) Techniques and then learning the various aspects of deploying this workflow in an end-to-end solution that a Geoscientist can use.
This hands-on coding and app workshop will feature programming in Python and the use of platforms and software packages that are available either open-source, or free (or almost free), and it could include some trial licenses.
Biostratigraphy is a fundamental discipline in petroleum exploration and development as it provides information on sedimentation ages, paleoenvironmental settings and source rock potential. This course will cover the main fossil groups used in commercial biostratigraphy, their temporal and spatial distribution, the contexts in which they occur and how they are used to provide solutions to geological and technical problems.
This online short course is designed to provide a geologic perspective of the climate debate to both geoscientists and non-geoscientists. By completing the course participants will have a better understanding of how the earth’s climate/sea levels/plates have changed/moved over geologic time, the earth’s evolving climate/plate positions/sea-level variations affected life on earth, and the environment has impacted man & man has impacted the earth’s environment.
This virtual short course focuses on methods and workflows for identifying, characterizing, and developing tight-shale reservoirs. Participants will learn how to apply mudrock depositional, sedimentological, sequence stratigraphic, and geochemical principles to exploration areas and production assets in shale basins.
This online short course is designed to provide a geologic perspective of unconventional reservoirs to both geoscientists and non-geoscientists. By completing the course participants will have a better understanding of the depositional environments of unconventional reservoirs, when and where source rocks formed in the geologic record, the basics of sequence stratigraphy, and more.
Jon Rotzien presents a 1-day course in Singapore on 21st Century Deep-water Clastic Reservoirs: Processes and Products.
In an area where palynology still has a significant impact, this course will cover all aspects of Palaeozoic applied palynology for the Middle East including regional and industry case studies. We will look at real applications of Late Palaeozoic palynology specific to the industry. There are no other courses that cover applied Middle East Late Palaeozoic Palynology, nor has the regional and industry focused on solving these geological problems.
