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.

New production in old fields is the subject of an e-symposium, New Production in Old Fields: Case Study in the Hunton Dolomite, provided online by AAPG. The course, which will take place online on June 7, will prepare students to understand dolomitization and the implications for porosity development in carbonates. The instructor is Dr. Lynn Watney, who is widely published in the the use of integrated technologies and geology to optimize exploration and production in the Mid-Continent.

Effective communication is vital in effective geoscience teams. Without it, poor decisions are made and morale slips, and individuals start looking for different opportunities. Leaders and mentors can increase their impact on retention of talent by engaging professionals in focused conversations. The purpose is to get beyond the short-term and think into the future. Join us for an AAPG E-Symposium on May 17 at 10 am.

It may be hard to imagine how, where, and how the petroleum industry will look twenty years from now. Technology is changing how we explore for and drill for oil and natural gas, and it is making reserves accessible that were once too difficult to produce, too deep, or otherwise problematic. Should universities offer a multi-disciplinary MS in Petroleum Geology? This post is intended as a discussion piece — a point of departure.

It is not easy to witness the departure of so many talented and dedicated geologists. Every month, we read of more losses within our ranks, and it’s very painful to see how fleeting one’s impact is, particularly when juxtaposed with the almost unfathomable unfoldings of geological time.

In highly heterogeneous plays that are geographically extensive, it is extremely important to take a multi-pronged approach that integrates geophysical, geochemical, petrophysical, and geological techniques at every step of the way. Highly heterogeneous reservoirs such as the Eagle Ford are characterized by sweet spots – the sweet spots are often much sweeter than anyone suspected. By the same token, the barren expanses are definitely barren.
