Long gone are the days when faults appeared only as steps on vertical seismic sections. If we use today's better data and exploit modern workstation tools available, we should do a much better job of recognizing and understanding faults in 3-D seismic data.

The storage field geologist, while worrying about such things as spill points and thief zones, is primarily concerned with “location, location, location.”

No matter how mature the field, geoscientists seem to always come up with either a new technology or another twist on the tried-and-true to pull more hydrocarbons out of the reservoirs. When commodity prices are looking good, producers have an added incentive to use the technology to go after deeper targets and also explore for smaller ones in producing trends that historically have been exploited at shallow depths.

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.
