There is a new AAPG Memoir 120 released in January that will be of interest to EMD members involved with tight oil and gas (shale) reservoirs, titled “Mudstone Diagenesis: Research Perspectives for Shale Hydrocarbon Reservoirs, Seals, and Source Rocks” that is now available from the AAPG Bookstore http://store.aapg.org/detail.aspx?id=1310. This book was edited and authored by several EMD members as an outgrowth of the joint SEPM-AAPG Mudstone Diagenesis Hedberg Research Conference held in October, 2016 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. This volume provides an up-to-date reference that is intended for professional geologists, research scientists, and students specializing in petroleum geology, organic and inorganic geochemistry, mudstone petrography, and rock mechanics. The book is organized into five sections: 1) New Tools and Techniques, 2) Inorganic Diagenesis, 3) Mechanical Properties, 4) Organic Diagenesis, and 5) Applications and Case Studies.

What’s in a name? Should we call it a transition? A convergence? A transformation? A revolution? A tipping-point? A paradigm shift? Consider that perhaps the name is largely irrelevant, except to sell conference tickets. There’s a radical shift afoot that affects the business model for global energy delivery and consumption. And with it comes with a wealth of opportunities for energy geoscientists, as well as an obligation for every professional society to help its members prepare for the future.
