Modern hydrocarbon exploration began in Mozambique in 1948, when Gulf Oil was awarded an onshore concession covering much of the southern half of the country.

The oil patch is a happening place these days -- and a lot of the activity is directed toward acquisitions, mergers, downsizing and the like.

In 1969, Shell Oil began looking for places where its new 'bright spot' technology could be useful in the onshore of the United States. Armed with a list of rock and fluid criteria, I began making a search for places where this novel technique could be as useful to Shell in the onshore USA as it was in the Gulf of Mexico.

This month, we further evolve this framework to build a palinspastically quantitative reassembly of continents and continental blocks that were separated during the Mesozoic rifting and subsequent drift in the Gulf of Mexico region -- key features.

The historic 'western gap' treaty, signed this summer by the U.S. and Mexican governments after more than 22 years of waiting, already is redefining priorities in Gulf of Mexico exploration.

Deep water and subsalt plays are the two hottest exploration frontiers in the Gulf of Mexico and searching for structures below the salt in waters thousands of feet deep is the most exciting play with the greatest potential for reward vs. the risk.

The oil and gas business continues to be among the crown jewels of the United Kingdom's economy, sustaining an impressive performance for over three decades -- and through innovative approaches, officials mean to keep it that way.

One hundred years of petroleum exploration and development in the Los Angeles region have produced a rich legacy of geological and geophysical data -- a legacy that the oil industry has spent billions of dollars to obtain.

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.

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.
