Learning is important—now more than ever. How do you equip yourself for changing times? How do you deepen and broaden your knowledge? Here is an informal place to find out what we’re doing, what we’re planning, and how we’re listening to you. Dr. Susan Nash, AAPG’s Director of Education and Professional Development, shares the new territory she’s introducing to AAPG with courses and dynamic new workshops. She is also planning more interactive, Web 2.0 offerings. So, give her your input about the best and worst of the wild and woolly world of webinars, Web-based training, and open courseware.

Poor proppant selection for hydraulic fracturing in a shale play can be disastrous. The wrong size and the wrong coating can result in clogged pore spaces and greatly reduced permeability. Instead of increasing reservoir connectivity, a poor proppant selection can decrease it.

It often seems as though attempts to find sweet spots are restricted to seismic, petrophysics, cores, and regional geological information. There’s geochemical information as well, and as yet, it’s often an underutilized data set, often because there is little or no consistency in the information gathered in all the wells.
