A world at war, a deadly epidemic of global proportions and other catastrophic events teamed up to disrupt in part AAPG’s Distinguished Lecture program last year -- but the train is back on track.

In the Rockies we are all looking for a hidden structure that will discover a new big gas field. In 1994, Barrett Resources (now Williams Production Company) made a significant Rocky Mountain gas discovery at Cave Gulch Field, with reserves in excess of 600 BCF.

In the June EXPLORER we discussed the idea that the best overall 3-D seismic survey is not necessarily the one with the best quality data. Nor does it have to be the one with long offset data from all azimuths. This month we look at offset distribution plots and offset-limited fold plots from several different wide-azimuth designs. Then, we will compare these plots to similar plots from a typical narrow-azimuth design.

Short Course
Bogotá , Colombia
Thursday, 10 November Friday, 11 November 2022, 8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.

This 2-day, in-person course describes the range and variability in deepwater sedimentary systems and equips participants to build predictive models of subsurface geology for more successful exploration and development. A primary goal of this course is to enable subsurface teams to more effectively characterize and rank deepwater/offshore projects on a regional and global scale.

Workshop
Muscat, Oman
Monday, 16 January Wednesday, 18 January 2023, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

The sedimentary basins of the Middle East have been proved to contain vast hydrocarbon reserves, sourced by some of the most prolific petroleum systems in the world. This is the product of a range of factors, not least the long-lived, relative stability of the Arabian Plate and the presence of multiple, prolific organic source rocks. This workshop will address these and other subjects and to discuss the main challenges present in our current understanding of petroleum systems in the Middle East.

Assistant Professor of Hydrogeology

The Boone Pickens School of Geology at Oklahoma State University invites applications for a tenure- track, assistant professor position in physical hydrogeology. The anticipated start date is August 1, 2023. The successful applicant must have a Ph.D. degree in geosciences or a related field at the time of appointment. Postdoctoral experience is preferred. The School encourages applications from candidates from underrepresented groups in the geosciences.

VG Abstract

In comparison with the known boundary conditions that promote salt deformation and flow in sedimentary basins, the processes involved with the mobilization of clay-rich detrital sediments are far less well established. This talk will use seismic examples in different tectonic settings to document the variety of shale geometries that can be formed under brittle and ductile deformations.
