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
Houston, Texas
Friday, 22 November 2019, 1:00 p.m.–5:00 p.m.

Date: 11/22/2019 to 11/22/2019 Time: 1PM to 5PM Venue: The Cannon Houston Location Address: 1334 Brittmoore Rd, Houston, TX 77043 Location City/State: Houston, Texas This course is for people without a background in machine learning, software engineering, or data science. The purpose of the course is to help people who are immersed in the oil and gas industry to gain a practical understanding of what unstructured data is, what value there is in it, how it can be utilized, and why this is now relevant. Much of unstructured data mining is based on machine learning, so this course also seeks to instill memorable intuitive understanding of machine learning. This course does not require any use of computers. The course consists of these segments: The differences between structured and unstructured data will be explored, and emphasis will be placed on why unstructured data is crucial to firms in the oil and gas industry. The drastic inefficiencies created by mismanagement of unstructured data will be given context by the growth in private equity backing, the lower hydrocarbon price environment, the proliferation of data sources, and the aftermath of the big crew change. Attendees will engage in an interactive simulation of a typical oil and gas workflow involving structured and unstructured data. Incumbent solutions, including data file structuring projects and off-the-shelf enterprise search tools, will be considered. Each will be evaluated based on its ability to return accurate and relevant information to users in a useful format and at speeds that do not inhibit seamless operations. Attendees will engage in an interactive simulation of each of the two typical incumbent solutions to handle unstructured data. The basics of machine learning will be explained in simple and intuitive terms, including a few examples. Attendees will engage in an interactive application of machine learning to solve a problem. This application will be a simulation not requiring the use of any electronics. Three case studies will be explored showing results and highlighting value added of a new (to oil and gas) class of solution. The first study involved implementation of a tool to help workers navigate historical reports to extract knowledge to make better decisions in real time. The second study involved implementation of a tool to serve as a surrogate for a retiring subject matter expert so that less experienced employees could still get good answers to questions. The third case study has not been completed, yet, but it involves simply using a tool to automatically fill out missing fields in a database from data scattered across unstructured reports.

Muscat, Oman
Monday, 9 December Wednesday, 11 December 2019, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

Join us for the Structural Styles of the Middle East workshop. December 9-11, 2019, Muscat, Oman The workshop aims to provide a state of the art review of the contrasted structural styles of the Middle East. The technical sessions will evaluate the influence of the multiple regional tectonic phases and of other major controlling parameters on the occurrence of major structural styles. A clear focus should be brought to the recent progresses made in the domains covered by the technical sessions as well as to their implications on economic prospectivity concerning hydrocarbon resources.

Workshop
Beirut, Lebanon
Wednesday, 11 December Thursday, 12 December 2019, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

This 2-day training seminar is based on more than ten years of experience stemming from R&D studies in the fields of sedimentology, stratigraphy, structural geology, geochemistry and petroleum systems in the East-Mediterranean basins, together with technical industrial consultancy work for major players in the region. This seminar will only showcase the work achieved by an international multi-disciplinary research group including prestigious academic and industrial institutions, as well as research centres, seismic data providers and last but not least the Lebanese Petroleum Administration (LPA). Attendants are not expected nor required to provide any of their company’s data, results, or any sort of interpretation.

Human capital development is a key element in building resilient and crisis-proof businesses. Currently the E&P workforce is going through major demographic change, while at the same time becoming more digitized as digital E&P technologies develop. These factors have created significant talent gaps in certain specialties. Mark your calendar to attend the EAGE/AAPG E&P HR Workshop: “The Challenge for Digital Talent”. A two day event focusing on the importance of developing human capital in the increasingly digitized E&P landscape.

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.
