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.

An AAPG Geosciences Technology Workshop (GTW) This workshop brings together new technologies, practices, and procedures that can be applied to new and mature fields in order to revitalize them and increase / optimize recovery. The presentations will focus on case studies, research findings, and field applications for new and existing plays, including in the Rocky Mountain region, the Permian Basin, and the MidContinent. Lessons learned from shale and unconventionals will be discussed, and their potential applications to mature fields will be evaluated. We will also take a close look at geochemistry, geomechanics, 3D visualization, microseismic, as well as the workflows used. Techniques to be reviewed include practical approaches to hydraulic fracturing, evaluating cases for re-fracking, drilling fluids / frac fluid optimization, enhanced oil and gas recovery, and more.
