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.

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.
