Students at the University of Calgary’s Department of Geology and Geophysics integrate maps and data to help predict where open fractures will deliver oil and gas to well bores from subsurface reservoirs.

Earthquake in the Gulf spotlights the Cretaceous shelf edge, the separation point of the Gulf of Mexico plate from North American plate.

Gas producers across the northern shelf of the Gulf of Mexico are now targeting super-deep gas plays -- some targets at depths of 26,000 to 33,000 feet (eight to 10 kilometers). To create optimal images of these super-deep gas targets, seismic data need to be acquired with receiver offsets extending to eight to 10 km away from the source.

Call it a dispute. A disagreement. A misunderstanding borne of opposing perspectives. Either way, who can do what with seismic data can be a thorny issue for geologists who use the data and for geophysical companies that acquire and provide the data. The contention revolves around Master License Agreements (MLAs) adopted by the Houston-based International Association of Geophysical Contractors.

Like Sidney Powers himself, Robert Mitchum teamed with peers to convert groundbreaking theories into practical applications. Collaboration resonates throughout the lifework of Robert Mitchum, the 2006 recipient of the Sidney Powers Memorial Award.

Fizz-gas and commercial-gas reservoirs look identical in stacked P-P seismic data and in migrated P-P images – and the failure of traditional post-stack P-P data to distinguish between these two gas saturations has frustrated efforts by operators to avoid drilling fizz-gas targets for decades. A solution now appears to be available through the use of multicomponent seismic technology.

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.

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.
