Roles and Responsibilities of a Development Geologist, For Beginners

Published
American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)
AAPG Short Course Roles and Responsibilities of a Development Geologist, For Beginners, instructed by Phil Salvador a 40 year veteran working as a development geologist, will be held 7 October in Houston, Texas.

This course is intended to help development geologists (and geophysicists) with 0 - 2 years’ experiences in this role quickly become effective contributors to field development. A workflow, from field mapping and target identification through to well planning, support and post-well evaluation, will be covered, with best practices highlighted. Both drilled wells and workovers will be mentioned. Please note that the "how to" aspects of mapping, log analysis, and other specific geological tasks will not be covered in this course. The team aspects of the development geologist’s work and the importance of "people skills" will be emphasized. Some brief ideas on career progression for development geologists will be mentioned. Course contents are applicable to a range of company settings, from large to very small, onshore and offshore.

Workshop

Making Money with Mature Fields
5-6 October 2016 | Houston, Texas
The goal of this workshop is to review mature fields and to identify the amount and nature of oil that can be recovered, and to evaluate competing strategies for economically producing the remaining reserves. In addition to looking closely at fields, we will review new and improved technologies that may help revitalize reservoirs and overcome problems such as low pressure, paraffin, corrosion, and more. We will identify companies willing to offer a "no money down" approach, or other forms of innovative financing. In addition to reviewing the technology, we will review case studies.
