It's been through the best of times, the worst of times and the most uncertain of times. Amazingly, Destin Dome is still a big, tantalizing part of the industry's GOM strategy.

Time-lapse, or so-called 4-D, seismic technology is proving its worth as a reservoir management tool -- not just on new fields where the technique is applied from inception, but at all stages of a field's lifecycle.

Talk about a big story. In Denver, one giant talking about other giants drew a giant crowd. The speaker at the podium was legendary oil finder Michel T. Halbouty, a giant of the industry who's been a part of the industry for seven decades, talking about 'Giant Oil and Gas Fields of the Decade -- 1990-2000.'

Too often the public perception of the petroleum industry may be that of a fiefdom ruled by the major oil companies whose executives sit in some secret room and control the energy resources of the world.

Workshop
Barcelona, Spain
Tuesday, 24 November Wednesday, 25 November 2020, 8:00 p.m.–5:00 p.m.

This workshop brings together experts from academia and industry from a range of disciplines to share experiences, new approaches, new data and new ways of integrating information that can help in reducing the uncertainties related to the exploration activities in Thrust Belt Systems.

Mozambique
Monday, 27 April Wednesday, 29 April 2020, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

In 2020, AAPG will launch its first GTW (Geosciences Technology Workshop) in Mozambique, partnering with ENH (Mozambique National Oil and Gas Company) with a focus on deepwater reservoirs and LNG. The goal will be to build scientific knowledge, discover innovations, and network with peers. AAPG has established the GTWs as the primary vehicle for scientific and technological knowledge exchange throughout the world.

Workshop
Salzburg, Austria
Wednesday, 7 October Thursday, 8 October 2020, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

Join us in Salzburg, the “castle of salt” and cradle of Mozart and Doppler, for a meeting aimed at bringing together different perspectives in the science of evaporite basins: from their formation to their deformation, from description and characterization to modelling. Exploratory success in evaporite-rich basins worldwide has depended on the role of evaporites as a deformable substrate, as a seal, or even as a good thermal conductor. The aim of this workshop is to improve our understanding and predictive ability by addressing evaporite systems in an integrated manner, all the way from precipitation to structuration, and exploring the multiple properties of evaporite sequences. The pre- and post-meeting field trips will also explore the salt mining heritage of the region, first exploited by the Celts 3500 years ago, and the salt-related structures of the Northern Calcareous Alps.

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.

VG Abstract

The Betic hinterland, in the westernmost Mediterranean, constitutes a unique example of a stack of metamorphic units. Using a three-dimensional model for the crustal structure of the Betics-Rif area this talk will address the role of crustal flow simultaneously to upper-crustal low-angle faulting in the origin and evolution of the topography.
