A seismic interpretation study of reflection profiles was undertaken to identify sedimentary and structural components of the tectonic development of the West Greenland continental margin. The new structural framework reveals a long and complex tectono-stratigraphy and evolution.

When the AAPG/AAPG Foundation initiated the Imperial Barrel Award, there was a sense that participating students would take the unique experience with them and pay it forward. Which brings us to AAPG member Elizabeth Hajek, assistant professor for Penn State University.

The Caribbean has become a classic locus for unraveling regional paleogeographic evolution. Although there are a few who continue to question it, the collective efforts of these many geoscientists have led to numerous principles that demand a Pacific origin for the Caribbean oceanic lithosphere.

AAPG Europe’s latest Geosciences Technology Workshop (GTW), “Fractured Reservoirs: The Geological, Geophysical and Engineering Tools to Crack Them,” provided the opportunity to visit the island of Sicily, steeped both in beauty and an active geological history. And what is a trip to Sicily without a visit to the tallest volcano in Europe?

An intriguing program is afoot to assess the hydrocarbon potential of the Niobrara in south-central South Dakota. The assessment program was initiated in 2012, when the American Indian Higher Education Consortium funded a cooperative education program between the Sinte Gleska University on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation in South Dakota and the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (SDSM&T).

The Wattenberg Field north of Denver has become a big deal in the industry since its discovery in 1970 by Amoco Production Company. It’s a twofer, kicking out both oil and natural gas. To many, mention of the field conjures up thoughts of the upper Cretaceous Niobrara shale, which is a prolific producer there, along with other geologic formations. The Codell sandstone, for example, is a major pay in this giant field.

This course is designed to give participants the basic working tools to explore and develop hydrocarbons in salt basins. Because no two basins are alike, the focus is on understanding the processes and styles of salt-related deformation. At course completion participants should be able to under the depositional setting of layered evaporites, describe the mechanics of salt flow, interpret salt and stratal geometries associated with diapirs, salt welds, and minibasins, and assess more accurately the risks in the exploration of salt basins.
