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!
Jointly organized by SPE, AAPG and SEG, URTeC connects the key technical and business professionals deciding where, how and when plays will be developed and wells drilled every day. It's the only event leveraging expertise from all technical backgrounds and focusing on the asset team approach to successful field development.
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.
Geologic interpretations are the basis of most exploration workflows, whether building a 3-D framework, a geocellular model, or modeling HC basins and estimating HC reserves. All these workflows rely on the most realistic and accurate interpretation in order to produce high-confidence results.
Join us to hear from Catalina Luneburg, founder and director of TerraEx Group and specialist in the validation of HC basins and structural geology modeling.
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. Atmospheric content of CO2 and methane have risen 146% and 257% respectively since pre-industrial time and the rate of increase through 2019 has accelerated. If significant steps are not taken in the coming decade to halt the increase in greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), a phase may be reached in the 2030-2050-time frame described as a “tipping point”, in which steady changes may be replaced by a large-scale change in the climate system. The Middle East is an area of high climate change vulnerability in the coming decades due to extreme temperatures, sea level rise and changing weather patterns.
Join us for 'Batter Tech and Critical Minerals' where we will discuss an overview of battery tech and critical materials, new trends in energy storage, new opportunities in local energy generation and storage, lithium, rare earths and more. Webinar will be presented via Zoom 7pm -8:30pm CDT, 19 August 2020.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become very popular for solving problems in seismic data processing. This involves the creation of a predictive model trained on labeled data. However, model outputs are as good as their training set. Poor quality training data results in poor performance of the AI model. Therefore, work by a geoscientist is critical for data preprocessing. This involves significant efforts in labeling the data and developing complex signal or image processing algorithms.
This hands-on coding and app workshop will feature programming in Python and the use of platforms and software packages that are available either open-source, or free (or almost free), and it could include some trial licenses.
There are over 300 known active onshore mud volcanoes globally, and many more offshore. Mud volcanoes are subsurface fluid escape features in which high pore pressures drive fluids, gases, and subsurface sediments to the surface. This talk will summarize mud volcanoes around the world and examine mud volcano plumbing systems and their link to petroleum systems.
The “Great Crew Change” has become the “Competence Train Wreck” due to the repeated personal mis-management practices of our industry and again not anticipating the known volatility of commodity prices. Despite this, hydrocarbon based energy will continue to comprise over 60% of the world’s energy mix for at least the next half century and of that energy need over half of it has yet to be found! Personal experience in working for National Oil Companies, Parastatals, large independent oil companies, small independents, as an independent and as a consultant have given me the perspective of some of the best and some of the worst of the exploration practices the industry has to offer.
The ultimate aim of hydraulic fracturing treatments in horizontal wells is to increase the flow and conductivity of unconventional oil/gas reservoirs by creating a long fracture in the order of 100 to 1,000 ft and conductive fracture width in the order of a tenth of an inch. This presentation will focus on the use of recent advancements of fracturing fluids to characterized fractures created in hydraulically stimulated reservoirs, focusing on HVFRs.
This event will showcase digital subsurface studies and workflows enabled by data science and delivered by a workforce equipped to handle next generation E&P. How digital transformation using subsurface data creates value in the oil and gas industry. As we constantly break new ground, the scope is broad but subsurface data should underpin your results. Data science makes some of its biggest discoveries by integrating many parts so the elements below represent the scope of the whole event and not individual sessions.
Part of the Energy Opportunities Country Showcase series, this interactive session features development opportunities for mature fields in Northwest Peru. Join officials from Perupetro, Peru’s national regulatory agency, for live presentations and Q&A sessions about the country’s oil and gas opportunities and upcoming bid rounds.
Economic oil and gas fields have been increasingly found in deep-water continental margins for the past decade, where potential prospects record the key tectonic events associated with plate breakup and continental drift. In these regions, the exploitation of economic resources must take into account sustainable practices and environmental concerns of local populations.
This talk will present case studies from multiple continental margins to then extrapolate major findings to basins in SE Asia.
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.
Join AAPG’s Virtual Research Symposium highlighting the geology of the Southeast Caribbean and Guiana Basins, with case studies from Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana and Suriname. The event includes a series of technical presentations, keynote talks and panel discussions with experts from industry and academia.
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.
AAPG and Energy Projects Forum (EPF) invite you to participate in the Latin America and Caribbean Region Energy Opportunities Conference to be held at the Camino Real Polanco in Mexico City.

This executive-level conference combines high-level plenaries featuring world-renowned industry leaders and innovators with topical workshops covering finance, technology and the environment. -->
Stay informed and gain a competitive edge with Energy Opportunities, a series of in-person conferences and virtual experiences connecting you with the people, insights and trends shaping the future of energy.
Energy Opportunities brings you the information and networking you need to be successful during times of uncertainty and transition.
In the past 3 decades the sequence stratigraphy jargon has proliferated, resulting in multiple definitions of the same surface or new surfaces and units based on drawings of deposition in response to relative changes in sea level. The close association between base-level changes, the formation of surfaces, and specific stratal stacking that define systems tracts are at the heart of the confusion. This webinar is proposed a back-to-basics approach, emphasizing key observations that can be made from any geologic data: lithofacies, lithofacies association, vertical stacking, stratal geometries, and stratal terminations.
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.
