Oil and natural gas professionals have been urging the SEC to modernize its disclosure rules for oil and natural gas reserves for many years.   The principal criticism of the original rules is that they were introduced more than a quarter century ago.

What in the world just happened? When it comes to global oil discoveries, it turns out a lot happened in 2008 – and a lot of it happened in Latin America.

This workshop provides the opportunity to learn and discuss the latest knowledge, techniques & technologies applied to unconventional reservoirs which can be utilized to explore for and develop these reservoirs. The workshop will provide a set-up for networking, interacting & sharing expertise with fellow petroleum scientists interested in developing and producing unconventional hydrocarbon resources.

Led by De Ville Wickens, PhD

Participants of this field excursion will be visiting one of the world's best examples of an ancient basin floor to slope fan complex associated with a fluvial-dominated deltaic system in the Karoo. Basin.

The Karoo basin hosts an inexhaustible amount of information on deepwater and deltaic sedimentation with present day erosion allowing 3D-viewing of laterally continuous (tens of kilometres) outcrops. The objective of this field trip is to attempt a better understanding of the basic depositional processes and facies development of deep-water sedimentation and the implications thereof for reservoir heterogeneity, lateral and vertical bed continuity and resulting reservoir architecture and quality. This two-day field trip will focus on show-casing the Whitehill and Dwyka formation, which are main targets for shale gas development in South Africa.
