American Association of Petroleum Geologists

Petroleum Geochemistry 101, Unconventional Thermal EOR's and Hybrid Plays

16-18 November 2020
Tulsa, Oklahoma, United States


Who Should Attend

The course is designed for intermediate geoscientists i.e. beginners or intermediate geochemist, geologist, geomodelers, well integrity engineers, production engineers, scale specialists, production managers who work from exploration through reservoir management and development to production and environmental multidisciplinary teams.

Professionals who seek for knowledge for Petroleum Geochemistry, in their support of petroleum systems dynamics, basin modeling, environmental/wim issues and production enhancement support.


After completion of this three days course, attendees will be able to work on multidisciplinary areas by:

  • Communicate clearly with multidisciplinary teams and generate daily or long-term geochemical solutions to maximize recovery and optimize capital spent executional projects within the full segment of EP business
  • Impact on reservoir well delivery, reservoir development and management and well integrity management/environmental related issues.
  • Use of reservoir geochemistry data for charge and migration assessment and integrated basin modeling parameters
  • Predict fluid properties determination and their complete geochemical characterization spectrum
  • Use of geochemical modeling tools to predict scaling, reservoir mineralogical transformation in thermal EOR towards well bore integrity issue coupled to flow back sampling
  • Predicts barriers and baffles especially in thermal reservoir struggle with clasts zones
  • Optimize chemicals costs used as stimulation in thermal reservoir and unconventional/hybrid plays
  • Predict different water sources in thermal EOR and unconventional/hybrid plays by geochemical modeling
  • Generate and interpretative geochemical tools for the origin of produced shale gases coupled to well logs data
  • Evaluation of in-situ distribution gases using gas geochemistry
  • Thermogenic and biogenic gases differentiations, geochemical well logs data
  • In-situ Sulfur management, field wise/reservoir mapping
  • Best practices geochemical sampling etc.
Course Content

Course will be held via Zoom: 16–18 November 2020, 8:00 am12:00 pm (CDT)

This course will provide beginner or intermediate geoscience professionals with daily geochemical solutions to executional E&P projects from exploration to WIM/production and environmental footprints issues. The cases study covered here are under unconventional petroleum systems i.e. mainly thermal EOR and hybrid/shale plays areas. Mainly focusing on young reservoir and production geochemistry techniques disciplines. Each module objective will be achieved through challenging interactive exercises at the end of it. 

Why This Class Stands Out

Unconventional/hybrid plays and thermal EOR petroleum geochemistry i.e. production geochemistry is a young discipline where there is an obvious need to be communicated/explained efficiently to a multidisciplinary team ranging from exploration appraisals including well delivery, reservoir management/development to production teams end point. It could impact towards lower cost through daily geochemical solutions for executional projects within a de-risking from exploration to production along the full segment business.

There are new topics to be covered under different area such as In-situ evaluation of produced gases, gas geochemistry, Barriers/Baffles-biomarkers, Tar Mat, H2S, geothermometry, Geochemical Modeling, Well Integrity Management/Environmental issues, aquathermolysis/sulfur management, Time Lapse Geochemistry hybrid plays, origin of shales gases/stable isotopes signatures, extract data from old preserved cores/malcolm, qemscan/ chemometrics correlations etc.
