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.

Gas hydrate field production tests, laboratory studies, and computer modeling have documented the fact that gas hydrates hosted in sand-rich, conventional reservoirs systems, can occur at high concentrations and can be produced with conventional hydrocarbon production technologies.

Because my term expires at the end of June, I want take a moment upfront to express my gratitude to the EMD Executive and Leadership Committees for their enthusiastic support and willingness to volunteer their valuable time to work with me during the past year. Your continued efforts are recognized and appreciated by many in AAPG. President Denise Cox expressed to me that she views EMD as the most important Division that will help insure AAPG’s future success as our Association keeps pace with a sustainable energy future. EMD will serve an important role in attracting new members to AAPG who are interested in alternate (non-petroleum) energy resources, and critical minerals required to support the transition to renewable energy sources. This view does not diminish the importance of the unconventional oil & gas resources represented by EMD, which will continue as a necessary component to meet the world’s increasing energy demand well into the future.
