Geomechanics has emerged as a major aspect of unconventional resource development, as demonstrated by its preeminence within this year’s URTeC program.

Fault interpretation is an important step in seismic structural interpretation and has a bearing on the quantitative interpretation that may eventually be carried out. This requires the meaningful recognition of the faults within the proper geological context of the area. In Oklahoma, we see wrench faulting with strike-slip faults and other associated features.

I was pleased to serve as the organizer, general chair and creator of the AAPG Global Super Basins Leadership Conference. I will remember it as a highlight of my year as AAPG president and my entire career. I would like to share a few observations resulting from this conference.

The revitalization of old basins by technological advances in producing unconventional reservoirs has justified the acquisition of modern, high-density 3-D seismic surveys of areas that were thought to be well understood. In Oklahoma, these surveys provide new images of the basement that was previously thought to be relatively homogeneous granite and rhyolite.

Imagination, an integrative approach to old-fashioned geology, plus advanced technologies played a leading role in the 2010-13 discovery of the Guama Field in the Plato Region of the Lower Magdalena Basin of Colombia.

The uptick in earthquakes corresponding with increased drilling and produced water disposal has been of great concern. Seeking scientific understanding of the reasons for increased seismicity and determining whether or not it has been induced by human activity has been a key focus. Welcome to an interview with Jeremy Boak, Ph.D., Director of the Oklahoma Geological Survey, which has demonstrated leadership in investigating induced seismicity.

CERA was a diverse and dynamic week. A record-breaking 4,500 CEO’s, leaders, energy ministers and global representatives from more than 70 countries attended the March 4-9 event to ponder the future of the industry. And this year, AAPG got to play an important role in this conversation.

A common way to understand the relationship between seismic attributes and petrophysical properties is by the use of rock physics templates, or simply by cross-plotting well log-derived elastic attributes against a color-coded petrophysical property.

Michael C. Forrest has been in the industry for more than five decades, first with Shell and then with Maxus, so one could start at any number of points in discussing his impact on geology. Perhaps the best place, though, is the eight-year period that began in 1967 when, at Shell, Forrest recognized the relationship between seismic amplitudes and the presence of hydrocarbons.

Workshop
Barranquilla, Colombia
Tuesday, 24 March Wednesday, 25 March 2020, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

The AAPG Latin America & Caribbean Region and the Colombian Association of Petroleum Geologists and Geophysicists (ACGGP) invite you join us for GTW Colombia 2020, a specialized workshop bringing leading scientists and industry practitioners to share best practices, exchange ideas and explore opportunities for future collaboration. The 2-day workshop brings together technical experts and industry leaders from Colombia and throughout the Americas to take a multidisciplinary look at future opportunities for exploration and development of Southern Caribbean Frontier Basins.

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.
