With technological advancements driving exploration toward an AI-aided future and companies’ business strategies constantly shifting the roles of geoscientists, AAPG must transform its Annual Convention and Exhibition to remain relevant to a new generation of energy professionals. Accordingly, the Association's Global Events Oversight Committee, with endorsement from the Executive Committee, has initiated a remodeling of the ACE Organizing Committee, effective with next year's event in Houston.

Tuesday May 21, 2019 7:15 pm – 9 pm Room 214 A in the San Antonio Convention Center. It is on the Meeting Room level of the convention center. This year we are focusing on how much petroleum comes from come from outside the landing zone / reservoir (and the implications for inventory, spacing, etc.). The first three talks address this issue as well as the problems associated with geochemical techniques that attempt to quantify out-of-zone flow. Alton Brown will follow with a talk that builds on last year’s conversation about pressure generation during petroleum generation and explusion.

Technology has linked us, but we’re not truly connected. And as New York Times columnist and author David Brooks relates in his new book, “The Second Mountain,” the social fragmentation we observe around us is at the core of many of the problems we see.

While shale oil and shale gas deliver quick returns and product to markets, it’s the deepwater and other offshore discoveries that yield significant reserve additions and long-lasting production.

Explorer Historical Highlights

Spindletop’s glory days were gone, or so it was believed. That landmark discovery on Jan. 10, 1901 at Spindletop Hill near Beaumont, Texas had defied existing American geological thought and changed the course of history, but had faded into memory by the 1920s. But, a novel geological hypothesis would soon change all that.

Carbonate Sedimentologist Research Associate

The Reservoir characterization Research Laboratory (RCRL) at the Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG) of the Jackson School of Geosciences at The University of Texas at Austin is seeking a full-time researcher to develop areas of existing and emerging research on carbonate systems as it relates to applied subsurface geology. Candidates that have experience in mixed carbonate-siliciclastics stratigraphy and sedimentology are preferred.

Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Atmospheric Sciences

The University of Houston Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences (EAS) invites applications for a tenure-track position in Atmospheric Science at the assistant professor level. This position request seeks a dynamic researcher and educator who can establish an externally funded research program in the field of Atmospheric Dynamics. This position is open to candidates whose research interest may cover any spatial scale in the climate system. Candidates with modeling and/or experimental background are encouraged to apply.

VG Abstract

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.

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.

VG Abstract

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.
