Effective communication is vital in effective geoscience teams. Without it, poor decisions are made and morale slips, and individuals start looking for different opportunities. Leaders and mentors can increase their impact on retention of talent by engaging professionals in focused conversations. The purpose is to get beyond the short-term and think into the future. Join us for an AAPG E-Symposium on May 17 at 10 am.

A new AAPG esymposium explores biostratigraphic markers in the Eagle Ford and connects them to sequence stratigraphy and TOC levels in order to determine sweet spots and to optimize drilling, production, and reservoir stimulation.

It may be hard to imagine how, where, and how the petroleum industry will look twenty years from now. Technology is changing how we explore for and drill for oil and natural gas, and it is making reserves accessible that were once too difficult to produce, too deep, or otherwise problematic. Should universities offer a multi-disciplinary MS in Petroleum Geology? This post is intended as a discussion piece — a point of departure.

It is not easy to witness the departure of so many talented and dedicated geologists. Every month, we read of more losses within our ranks, and it’s very painful to see how fleeting one’s impact is, particularly when juxtaposed with the almost unfathomable unfoldings of geological time.

In highly heterogeneous plays that are geographically extensive, it is extremely important to take a multi-pronged approach that integrates geophysical, geochemical, petrophysical, and geological techniques at every step of the way. Highly heterogeneous reservoirs such as the Eagle Ford are characterized by sweet spots – the sweet spots are often much sweeter than anyone suspected. By the same token, the barren expanses are definitely barren.

IBM’s new CEO, Virginia Rommety, sees opportunity as cloud computing expands to many realms and more companies leverage the information from web-based sources to make strategic decisions. How can general information gleaned from the web provide strategic guidance to exploration and production? What are the uses of non-technical information? The answers may surprise you.

VG Abstract

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.

The following short course option was developed for geology and geophysics students that have not had much exposure to how geoscience is applied in industry. It can be tailored for undergraduate juniors and seniors or graduate students. The agenda can be modified to meet specific needs and time constraints. Contact the presenter to discuss options.

This is a less-technical education topic. It can be condensed to an hour or given as 2 two-hour sessions. It stresses selected controversial aspects of fracking that touch some combination of environment and economics and includes a short video of how fracking is done.
