Something old, something new: For decades, production in the Granite Wash has been a steady, ongoing story – but the book is getting an exciting new chapter, thanks largely to horizontal drilling.

Angola’s oil industry continues to benefit from new oil discoveries and ever increasing oil production, according to a paper presented at the Deepwater Offshore West Africa Conference (DOWAC) by AAPG member, Tako Koning.

Offshore Brazil led the way in terms of 2010 discoveries, as offshore deepwater plays there dominated the industry’s and media’s attention.

Still standing: Despite the ill-fated Macondo disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, the industry not only weathered the storm but emerged strongly, thanks largely to notable discoveries around the world.

Oops: A new assessment of oil potential in Alaska’s National Petroleum Reserve is dramatically lower than previous estimates.

Old habits die hard – Not! The prolific California Monterey shale is revisited, but this time with an unconventional approach.

Canada’s Horn River Basin has been described as significantly larger than the Barnett shale area in Texas, which currently produces three billion cubic feet per day. Third-party estimates predict the Horn River area could hold 50-100 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, making it the hottest resource play in North America.

This presentation will show where there are cases of missing sections, but none of them can be attributed to normal faulting.
