Explorer Division Column DPA

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.

Cindy Yeilding of BP America discusses the production history and geology of one of the world’s most prolific hydrocarbon super basins.

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.

One of the first questions a seismic interpreter must ask is how to recognize and characterize the reservoir. Understanding the geology and the depositional history of the area is a good start.

Michel T. Halbouty '30 Visiting Chair in Geology and Geophysics

The Department of Geology and Geophysics at Texas A&M University is pleased to announce the Michel T. Halbouty ’30 Visiting Chair (Visiting Professor) in Geology and Geophysics. Candidates should have a PhD in Geology, Geophysics or related field, be at the Associate or Full Professor rank or hold an equivalent title, and be highly accomplished scholars with an internationally recognized record of excellence in their field of study.

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.
