Understanding fractures and fracture networks has become one of the most important elements in designing completions and stimulations in shales, as well as in the case of carbonates and clastics. Welcome to an interview with two renowned experts in fractures, John Lorenz and Scott Cooper, who have just published a groundbreaking Atlas of Natural and Induced Fractures in Core with AAPG. They will also run their popular short course at URTeC this year.

The Division members need to advance our knowledge about communications and data management in this new exploration world. New oil is found by new ideas and technologies and we need to know how best to serve our members.

A methodology is proposed in which relative rock properties are used to compute reservoir (or resource) properties. It reduces user input and simplifies parameterization.

The resurgence of the Permian Basin in the United States led directly to the concept of the “super basin”: a mature basin that can be rejuvenated to produce as much or more oil and gas than it has so far. Another archetype for super basins lies 1,000 miles southeast of the Permian, in the onshore/offshore Sureste Basin of Mexico.

Explorer Historical Highlights

Australia’s first offshore well heralded a new era of hydrocarbon independence for a continent previously thought to have “the wrong geology” to host significant oil and gas deposits. This success did not come easily – the early history of oil exploration in eastern Australia was long and frustrating, and not very successful.

Workshop
Salzburg, Austria
Tuesday, 19 October Wednesday, 20 October 2021, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

Join us in Salzburg, the “castle of salt” and cradle of Mozart and Doppler, for a meeting aimed at bringing together different perspectives in the science of evaporite basins: from their formation to their deformation, from description and characterization to modelling. Exploratory success in evaporite-rich basins worldwide has depended on the role of evaporites as a deformable substrate, as a seal, or even as a good thermal conductor. The aim of this workshop is to improve our understanding and predictive ability by addressing evaporite systems in an integrated manner, all the way from precipitation to structuration, and exploring the multiple properties of evaporite sequences. The pre- and post-meeting field trips will also explore the salt mining heritage of the region, first exploited by the Celts 3500 years ago, and the salt-related structures of the Northern Calcareous Alps.

VG Abstract

The following short course option was developed for geology and geophysics students that have not had much exposure to how geoscience is applied in industry. It can be tailored for undergraduate juniors and seniors or graduate students. The agenda can be modified to meet specific needs and time constraints. Contact the presenter to discuss options.

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.
