AAPG Asia Pacific will present our third learning event in Indonesia; after Bali and Bandung. This Geosciences Technology Workshop (GTW) will be held from 7-8 August 2019 in Bogor, Greater Jakarta. The theme is 'The Art of Hydrocarbon Prediction: Managing Uncertainties' and the committee is very enthusiastic about the program. In September, some members of the committee met with PT Pertamina,to seek their support for this event. Helmed by an advisory board and a technical committee, this event is currently welcoming abstracts before 15 January. Visit this link for more information on the event. https://www.aapg.org/global/asiapacific/events/workshop/ispreview/true/articleid/49102#152582144-program Please contact [email protected] for enquiries.

Deep learning for predicting behaviors is becoming indispensable in the oil industry. Understanding the fundamentals and having a hands-on experience with hacking Python code in order to predict reservoir flow was the experience provided by the first AAPG-Halliburton Hackathon, which took place July 19 in Houston. Led by the AAPG’s Deep Learning Technical Interest Group (TIG) and Halliburton, the event attracted more than 120 registrants who were primarily geoscientists, engineers, and data scientists who worked together in teams that competed against each other and were judged by a panel of experts. The hackathon was powered by the OpenEarth® Community and supported by a team of Halliburton experts in Python software, code, ideation, and strategy – as well as by domain experts and judges from the Deep Learning TIG.
