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!
Being able to interpret environments of deposition using open-hole logs is a skill most geologists and engineers desire. The purpose of this course is to use a systematic approach that uses the process of elimination to diagnose common fluvial, shallow marine and deepwater depositional environments in well log suites such as Gamma Ray, Resistivity and Porosity and in Borehole Image and Dipmeter Logs.
This short course discusses the growing importance of the seismic anisotropy of rock masses in seismic acquisition, processing, and interpretation.
This AAPGWN geochemistry short course is open to anyone interested in gaining an introduction to rock, oil, gas, and water geochemistry. The goal is to provide participants with a basic knowledge of geochemistry and its key applications in the exploration, appraisal, and development of oil fields.
Learn the high-level principles of five important topics in machine learning: neural networks; convolutional neural networks; support vector machines; principal component analysis; clustering methods. This short course is for physical scientists who have heard about Machine Learning (ML) and might know some details, but lack enough knowledge to assess ML applications in their specialty.
Natural fractures may be conductive in conventional reservoirs or may become conductive after hydraulic stimulation in unconventional reservoirs. This course addresses these concepts by examining datasets from both conventional and unconventional systems and presenting workflows to construct naturally-fractured reservoir models.
Introduction to Machine Learning (ML) – providing definitions, fundamental concepts of inference and prediction and the opportunity and limitations of ML
This workshop will focus on applications of anisotropic models and methods to seismic fracture characterization and microseismic monitoring of hydraulic fracturing.
Applied geophysics has a major role to play in the development of environmental impact assessment and monitoring of renewable energy sources such as geothermal, hydro, nuclear, wind, wave, tidal, and solar. Many future opportunities will require a refocusing of our most powerful 3-D imaging and inversion methods from the deeper earth toward the near surface.
Implementing carbon capture, usage, and storage (CCUS) projects at large scales is becoming a growing subject of interest for the geophysics community. This workshop will present what is already achievable but also the unknown and specificities that the geophysical community will face in the future.
Energy Storage and CCSU are emerging fields that are already new business opportunity for petroleum professionals. This workshop reviews the basics of different Energy Storage Technologies, CCSU, and injection induced seismicity.
Cities around the world, and especially in densely populated regions like Asia, have the potential to be the most efficient form of human society. Maintaining sustainability in megacities is crucial to seeking a global sustainable solution for the limited space, water, and energy resources. Geophysics has the potential to provide essential knowledge for urban planning, urban activity monitoring, and urban circular economy. To fully release such potential, innovations are needed to integrate new and conventional sensors, as well as nondedicated sensors and open social information. Furthermore, both physics-based and data-driven methods are essential to delineating different sources for urban activity monitoring and urban space characterization. Bridging the gap between geophysics, civil engineering, geotechnical engineering, digital informatics, and social economics provides the framework to guide project owners and local authorities to develop specific strategies for the sustainable development and management of urban environments.
The Gravity and Magnetics Committee jointly with the Near Surface Technical Section and the Mining Committee call for papers for a workshop scheduled for two half-days and focusing on magnetic methods in memory of a potential-field pioneer, Afif Saad. Workshop organizers welcome contributions from academia, industry, and government organizations that emphasize various applications of the magnetic method to a wide range of scientific and applied problems. Students and early- and mid-career participants who are willing to explore new career directions are particularly encouraged to participate.
Implementing carbon capture, usage, and storage (CCUS) projects at large scales is becoming a growing subject of interest for the geophysics community. This workshop will present what is already achievable but also the unknown and specificities that the geophysical community will face in the future. Technical presentations will serve as an opening for discussion between the audience and the invited speakers.
This course is informed by over 20 years working in oil and gas exploration and production with many companies and clients and by a further 15 years teaching structural and petroleum geology at Universities in Australia.
Join us virtually in this event that was due to be hosted in Salzburg, the “castle of salt” and cradle of Mozart and Doppler.
We aim to host an interactive meeting aimed at bringing together different perspectives in the science of evaporite basins: from their formation to their deformation, from description and characterization to modelling. Exploratory success in evaporite-rich basins worldwide has depended on the role of evaporites as a deformable substrate, as a seal, or even as a good thermal conductor. The aim of this workshop is to improve our understanding and predictive ability by addressing evaporite systems in an integrated manner, all the way from precipitation to structuration, and exploring the multiple properties of evaporite sequences. This will be done via technical sessions, keynote speaker presentations, panel sessions and more!
Join us for 'Multi-Criteria Geothermal Resource Assessment: From Play Analysis to Sustainability Evaluation'. A Masterclass presented by Dr. Luca Guglielmetti from the University of Geneva.
The second edition Asia Pacific Unconventional Resources Technology (Asia Pacific URTeC) 2021 will be held virtually from 16-18 November 2021 (UTC+10). Asia Pacific URTeC 2021 will gather regional and global experts, regulators and prominent researchers to share their technical know-how and technology advancements, providing us with new perspectives in evaluating and optimizing the extraction of unconventional resources and highlighting new and proven technologies.
High CO2 fields and marginal fields (due to high levels of contaminants) are some of the challenges that are prevalent in the Asia Pacific petroleum industry. Join AAPG Asia Pacific for a 2-day workshop focused on best practices, risk-based planning and the role geoscientists and engineers will play in these changing times.
Join us for the 3rd Edition of AAPG/EAGE Hydrocarbon Seals of the Middle East on 28 November to 2 December for this virtual workshop, Muscat, Oman time zone.
Politicians around the world are realising that CCS is a critical component in achieving Net Zero. They know in principle what needs to be done but lack insight into which of their many assets is a natural choice for CCS and how to convince stakeholders to commit to financial investment. If it was a horse race, they need to choose the best runners and know how to jump the hurdles to get to the finishing line.
In this second AAPG CCS workshop, we'll look deeper into the technologies available and the techniques to make them affordable. The 'Runners' and how to 'get them to the finish line.
Registration is now open for the 4th edition of the AAPG/EAGE Siliciclastic Reservoirs of the Middle East GTW taking place from 5-9 December 2021 in Al Khobar, Saudi Arabia.

This course aims to help teams characterize and interpret deep-water stratigraphy and reservoirs. The course described here will help corporate teams mature exploration concepts in areas of interest, as well as aid in the development decisions of existing fields.
This two-day virtual conference aims to bring together industrial and academic persons to present, explore and develop approaches that will benefit both sectors in the future. The virtual conference will focus on current techniques, the challenges and future solutions in understanding the Triassic stratigraphy of the North Sea, Norwegian Sea, West of Shetland, Atlantic margins, and northern Europe.
Unconventional Resources is an online course that enables participants to learn about shale gas, shale oil and coalbed methane.
