The first installment of our new monthly feature celebrating “The Next 100 Years” of AAPG examines our global energy future. The world of the future will need energy that is affordable, available, reliable and sustainable. But no form of energy is perfect and the availability and use of resources – from fossil to nuclear to renewable – vary by region.

While 100 years is a great milestone, it is also true that our profession is younger than the other scientific professions that serve as cornerstones of our modern industrial society.

One subject missing from the industry conversation is – not just discussing how to help those colleagues in transition or offering advice to students looking for jobs – but actually doing something about those challenges.

This field trip to the Cambrian microbial facies in the Mason, Texas, area will highlight several aspects of microbialite reservoirs including their composition, size and geometry. The Mason, Texas, outcrops afford spectacular views of both cross-section and plan views of microbialite facies, offering an opportunity for a truly 3-D view of the architecture of these potential reservoirs.

This six day Pecos River Canyon trip uses the superb and remarkably laterally continuous outcrops of this upper Albian ramp-to-intrashelf basin profile to develop a process-based, sequence stratigraphic framework for analogous Cretaceous reservoir systems surrounding the Bab intrashelf basin in the Middle East.

The objective of this field trip is to examine the deposits of an upper slope and slope canyon to deep basin floor deepwater depositional system developing along a Pennsylvanian-age fold and thrust belt called the Ouachita Trough. The units under study are part of the Stanley Group, Jackfork Group and the overlying Atoka Group.
