Even though the majority of the global population relies on energy from hydrocarbons each day, it’s taken for granted for the most part, noted A.T. (Tim) Cejka, president of ExxonMobil Exploration Co. and a vice president of ExxonMobil Corp.

The theme of AAPG’s 89th Annual Meeting is “Perfecting the Search, Delivering on Our Promises.” In introducing this theme, I would first like to set the scene for the next generation’s energy future.

An oil executive talking in the heart of the Gulf Coast pointed to an unexpected locale in forecasting the “it” place for future gas production. His pick to be the soon-to-be-crowned king of natural gas: the Rocky Mountains.

The Rocky Mountain region is poised to become the center of U.S. onshore gas production. The reserves are there, Rutt Bridges told a gathering in Denver earlier this year, but the big question hovers: Is the price right?

Environmental concerns are a major factor in all U.S. exploration, but it is especially true in the West. That includes Wyoming’s Pinedale Field, a tight gas sand giant in the northwest part of the Greater Green River Basin.

Success stories often include words like “fun” and “wonderful.” When Roy Roux talks about his company’s success in Utah’s remote and rugged Southwest Uinta Basin, different words are used. Words like hard. Frustrating. Challenging.

Dick Findley has two pieces of advice for working petroleum geologists. You’ll want to pay attention. Findley opened up a Bakken formation play that led to development of the giant Elm Coulee oil field in eastern Montana. The field now produces almost 50,000 barrels a day of high-quality crude.

Gas producers across the northern shelf of the Gulf of Mexico are now targeting super-deep gas plays -- some targets at depths of 26,000 to 33,000 feet (eight to 10 kilometers). To create optimal images of these super-deep gas targets, seismic data need to be acquired with receiver offsets extending to eight to 10 km away from the source.

The AAPG Division of Professional Affairs is providing new opportunities for professional development and networking through our new Playmakers forums. The primary purpose of these forums is to bring leaders from industry to present their ideas, successes and even failures in developing new plays. A secondary purpose is to provide training for professionals in prospect generation and presentations. The key to the success of Playmaker’s is most of the speakers are predominantly invited, technical experts on active plays
