AAPG virtual events 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. And now they are virtual, too!
Geophysicist with extensive worldwide experience in exploration, appraisal and development settings gained at BG group a major operator. He will talk about future energy demand modelling in terms of oil, gas and electricity including renewables with his presentation 'Petroleum Perspectives ,Past Present and Future'. Join Alan Foum via Zoom on June 8 at 12:00 GMT+1.
Much of unstructured data mining is based on machine learning, this course will seek to instill memorable intuitive understanding of machine learning. One of the primary purposes will be to help people who are immersed in the oil and gas industry 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.
Visiting Geoscientist Susan Morrice shares her personal experience and insight in this talk about opportunities for geoscientists. “Geoscientists have advantages ... They are Time Travellers and have open minds. Bringing this creativity and innovation to your company or starting your own! Challenging times bring silver linings!”
Gil Machado is a Petroleum Exploration Geologist with a Ph.D in stratigraphy and source rock characterization. Gil's presentation 'Reducing Uncertainty and Increasing Chances of Success Using Biostratigraphy', will explore the role of biostratigraphy in the exploration workflow. Several success cases from around the World will be detailed, showing the uses of this discipline for sedimentation age determination, paleoenvironmental interpretation and source rock characterization. Join Gil Machado via Zoom on June 10 at 12:00 GMT+1
Any complete core analysis program should include companion thin sections for all core plugs on which measurements have been made. This course will describe the use of multimodal thin section imaging and image analysis to make quantitative estimates of rock properties that are important in hydrocarbon exploration and production.
Ray Leonard will be talking to us about 'Climate Change, Covid-19 and the Effect on Energy’s Future'. Fossil fuels have led to a profound increase in world living standards but resulting emissions of CO2 and methane into the atmosphere are a primary factor in climate change. The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020 has resulted in a significant decrease in world economic activity, which in turn has led to a major, if temporary, decrease in greenhouse gas emissions, particularly CO2. Join Ray Leonard via Zoom on June 15 at 12:00 GMT+1
During this course, participants will gain the foundations for understanding and predicting the geometry, connectivity, and permeability trends of fluvial reservoir systems at the scale of boreholes, fields, and basins. A full range of topics needed to identify, correlate, and interpret fluvial reservoirs and encasing non-reservoir units will be covered.
Visiting Geoscientist Gretchen Gillis provides advice for on submitting abstracts to conferences, including AAPG’s ACE and ICE events. The information presented also is relevant to students presenting their research.
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.
Visiting Geoscientist Mauricio Guizada provides an overview of general structural geology of the Andes, with a focus on the Central Andes. His talk covers topics related to onshore exploration, G&G methods in exploration and risk analysis. Join Mauricio Guizada via Zoom on June 23 at 14:00 GMT-6.

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.
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 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.
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.
Do you want to learn how to deploy 3-D-printed models to improve technical communication to diverse audiences? Do you want to gain real experience with TouchTerrain app that allows 3-D-printable terrain models to be generated with no CAD software or GIS experience? This course will provide a unique opportunity to use 3-D printing to bridge the gap between computational and experimental analyses of natural rocks as applied to geoscience research, education and communication. One lucky participant will also win a 3-D printer!
