We're bringing in the latest applications of big data and deep learning, and we're making connections to deepwater and shelf reservoirs. This workshop updates your skillsets and your knowledge with presentations over new findings, technologies, and case studies as well as updated "how-to" processes and procedures.​

Following many years of on again/off again activity, the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale (TMS) was, at long last, being proven in recent months to be a viable commercial play, but the market has done a 180-degree spin owing to the unanticipated, near-devastating drop in oil prices.

Like numerous other geologic formations, the allure of the Wilcox has waxed and waned owing to fluctuating commodity prices, among other issues. As hydrocarbon prices recovered and technology applications like hydraulic fracturing became commonplace, the Wilcox beckoned anew, attracting principally the mom-and-pop shops and the small to mid-size independents.

The title says it all: Determining Hydrocarbon Distribution Using Resistivity, Tuscaloosa Marine Shale, Southwestern Mississippi. The purpose of the study was to investigate the TMS Trend in southwestern Mississippi using electric logs and IHS’s proprietary Petra mapping software to document the structure, stratigraphy and hydrocarbon distribution.

The ever-increasing number of hydraulic fracturing applications used to economically produce shale reservoirs impacts various businesses that profit from this phenomenon. Think sand mining/processing, for example.

Explorer Foundation Update

 

It has a new name, a new energy and a new lineup of experts, all primed to spread geoscience knowledge around the world. “It” is AAPG’s newly named Global Distinguished Lecture Program – emphasis on the “global” – which dates back to 1941 but continues to be the Association’s flagship initiative for offering the latest in geologic science to AAPG affiliated geological societies and universities.

VG Abstract

 

Accurate interpretation of geophysical data, in particular reflection seismic data, is one of the most important elements of a successful oil and gas exploration program. Despite technological advances in data acquisition and processing and regular use of powerful computers and sophisticated software applications, you still face a tremendous challenge each time you begin to reconstruct the geologic story contained in a grid or volume of seismic data -- that is, to interpret the data. On occasion this interpretive tale can be clearly told, but most of the time each page of each chapter is slowly turned, and rarely is the full meaning of the story completely understood. Interpretation of Reflection Seismic Data from the Gulf of Mexico illustrates these concepts using real seismic data and actual exploration problems.

In 1991, Gulf Indonesia and its partners discovered South Sumatra Basin’s first major gas field at Dayung in the Corridor PSC. A key feature of this field is that most of the reserves are held within fractured basement rocks of pre-Tertiary age.
