I received my 40-year certificate from AAPG. At the bottom it reads, “In Recognition and Appreciation of your Loyalty to AAPG,” but it is I who should be thanking AAPG for allowing me to be part of this great organization. AAPG allowed me to network and make contacts with smarter people than me and to learn and expand my knowledge base. This is a great profession, and I have found a career in the geological sciences to be extremely rewarding.

I am super-thrilled to be starting a two-year term as AAPG Europe Region president. The AAPG is a global force for good in our industry, and frankly, after 35 years exploring for oil and gas around the world, I needed to stop taking AAPG for granted. There’s a lot to be done, but we have a great team and are looking forward to some cracking events and activities this year.

For implementation, there remains a sometimes difficult phase of negotiation that is an essential part of the “Art of Exploration.” The following real life cases give a frontal view of the action of this particular stage of the exploration process.

Most contributions to the exploration community that get attention in articles and conventions concern the essential technical issues: petroleum geology, prospect/play risk analysis and volume expectation, economics, etc. However, once the prospect has been evaluated and the project is validated

As the global energy sector gains momentum and companies enter licensing rounds, the need for quick access to data holds fundamental importance. Increasingly, operators large and small are turning to multiclient companies who have the information and images that help them make decisions about entering a new area.

Wind, solar and biofuels have a long way to go before they’re sufficiently reliable to replace fossil fuels as the world’s primary energy source, but in the meantime, carbon capture and storage will play an integral role in the global transition to sustainable energy.

These days acoustic and elastic impedance are commonly derived from 3-D seismic data, which help us compute porosity and reservoir fluid estimates. Somewhat less commonly, vertical fracture density and fracture orientation in the reservoir rocks are derived from seismic data, enhancing our ability for optimum placement of horizontal wells and optimal recovery. To achieve the latter objective, good quality seismic data are required, which might be acquired not only with such objectives in mind, but also to yield data with good signal-to-noise ratio.

Collaboration. Scott Singleton, geophysical technology adviser at Independence Resources Management in Houston, wants to underscore that one word. He believes that if there’s a single ingredient to success in unconventional fields – and the one concept from which those in unconventionals have unfortunately moved away – it’s that geologists, geophysicists and engineers have to work together for the benefit of everyone.

Talk to geophysicists about innovation and common themes emerge: Increased computing power. Artificial intelligence for data analytics. Full waveform inversion. Enhanced acoustic sensing, with multiple sensors. And much, much more. Innovations also can be seen in established geophysical tools. And some geophysical technologies and techniques that have been developing for five years or more are finally reaching day-to-day application in the field.

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.
