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.

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.

IBM’s new CEO, Virginia Rommety, sees opportunity as cloud computing expands to many realms and more companies leverage the information from web-based sources to make strategic decisions. How can general information gleaned from the web provide strategic guidance to exploration and production? What are the uses of non-technical information? The answers may surprise you.

Join us to learn new techniques for determining heterogeneity in carbonates, and the best ways to find sweet spots and to effectively produce hydrocarbons from complex, often frustrating yet highly productive plays. Sign up for Heterogeneity in Carbonate Reservoirs, an hour-long webinar, plus day’s worth of additional materials / readings / questions (for CEU credit).
