Four seals and five pressure systems are recognized in the Sichuan Basin, southwest China; Based on mechanisms analysis and hydrocarbon generation history, a pressure evolution model has been constructed which includes a normal pressure stage, an overpressuring stage, and an overpressure releasing stage.

Thermochemical sulfate reduction (TSR) is complex and cannot be simply represented. The application of three-dimensional reactive transport modeling presented in this paper is a good example of how such an approach to investigate TSR can be used prior to drilling.

A suite of surface-based models of heterolithic, cross-bedded tidal sandstones has been investigated via flow simulation in order to calculate effective permeability. Effective permeability is highly anisotropic and decreases as the mudstone fraction increases.

This study demonstrates a method for generating fault envelope grids on full-field reservoir models where fault cores are modeled. Volumetrically expressed fault cores substantially influence forecasts of field behavior and should be considered during production planning.

With less than 30 days until the June 18 HoD Annual Meeting, and this Delegates’ Voice to be published before the convention, we wanted to summarize concerns for the two amendments offered by the EC and/or HoD leadership, and champion the two amendments that 60-plus members petitioned to be passed.

In last month’s DV a few of our members submitted a letter in opposition to the proposed amendment to AAPG’s bylaws concerning the Advisory Council (AC), to be voted upon at the HoD meeting in Calgary. This amendment, if approved, will allow each Section, Region and Division to have a voting representative on the AC.

In this column you will find a link to “v.13” of the reformatted constitution and bylaws. There have been numerous sub-versions within the major versions, so it is no exaggeration to say that there have been over two dozen versions of the document that have been thoroughly vetted by delegates, committees and leadership over the past year.

Rarely in the recent history of House of Delegates meetings has a more profound initiative come out of the annual meeting. Beginning at the HoD meeting in Denver, Bob Shoup instituted an initiative to simplify the Bylaws in an effort to make them more readable and understandable.
