Channel belts are the principle reservoirs in fluvial systems. The degree to which these belts are merged or separated is a critical determiner for reservoir volumes. The degree to which reservoirs within belts are connected is equally critical.

A proposal that the megacycles of the Campanian strata in the Cordilleran foreland basin in southern and central Utah resulted from interaction of a seasonal, wet monsoonal climate and topography rather than lowstand deposits formed by downstream changes in sea level.

Marita Bradshaw, an AAPG member and retired geologist with Geoscience Australia, has spent her career helping to uncover Australia’s oil and gas potential and is now pleased to see recent large discoveries on the continent and the expansion of the export LNG industry. A symposium will be held in her honor this month at the AAPG-SEG International Convention and Exhibition (ICE) in Melbourne.

Unconventional plays in the Permian Basin are nothing new to the shale scene, as the basin has been horizontally drilled and hydraulically fractured for years. Still, a new approach for evaluating sweet spots, particularly in the Avalon Shale of the play’s Delaware Basin, is slowly changing the way unconventional resources are explored – and perhaps one day, developed.

When 3-D seismic technology became a must-have tool for the E&P crowd beginning in the mid-1990s, there was considerable scurrying to get up to speed on this then-daunting high-tech application. Even today, it’s not uncommon to see a non-geophysicist’s eyes glaze over when a discussion turns to even basic seismic terminology like P-waves, which move through both solid rock and fluids, and S-waves, which travel only through rock.

Participants will learn a specific and comprehensive methodology for finding and developing conventional and unconventional oil and gas resources associated with lake deposits. The seminar will start with the Quaternary Bonneville basin in Utah, to build familiarity with lacustrine depositional processes. Participants then examine world-famous exposures of organic-rich mudstone, fluvial sandstone, and carbonate microbialite facies in Wyoming.

The goal of this workshop is to review mature fields and to identify the amount and nature of oil that can be recovered, and to evaluate competing strategies for economically producing the remaining reserves. In addition to looking closely at fields, we will review new and improved technologies that may help revitalize reservoirs and overcome problems such as low pressure, paraffin, corrosion, and more. We will identify companies willing to offer a “no money down” approach, or other forms of innovative financing. In addition to reviewing the technology, we will review case studies.

The paradigm of sequence stratigraphy has entered a new phase and these once revolutionary concepts are now applied in pre-drill exploration at ever-increasing resolution. The concepts also prove useful in production geology, especially in enhanced oil recovery efforts in previously abandoned fields.
