Explorer Director’s Corner

 

Unconventional resources have transformed the global energy landscape. And as this issue hits your mailbox, geoscientists and engineers from around the world are in San Antonio, Texas for the fourth edition of URTeC, the Unconventional Resources Technology Conference from August 1-3.

Explorer Emphasis

 

In the past few years, a wave of schools geared to training students in science and mathematics in the hope of creating the next generation of oil and gas professionals have popped up in several oil-producing states.

The key to effectiveness in horizontal drilling is geosteering, or guiding the bit along what have become continually extending laterals within precisely defined and generally narrow windows.

Explorer President’s Column

 

As we approach our 100th year as an association, the obstacles we face threaten to overshadow the mission. The struggle to adapt to the changing industry environment has dominated the landscape and AAPG is coming off a second consecutive year of declining revenues, with an outcome of restructuring and continued austerity. Despite these challenges, AAPG is leveling-off with a nearly balanced budget, and I remain focused on the primary missions of the Association.

Short Course

Houston Texas United States 22 September, 2016 22 September, 2016 33038
 
Houston, Texas, United States
22 September 2016

This course will consist of lecture and exercises to assist the new industry energy professionals with understanding the principles of petroleum economics; including the value of money, quantifying financials risks in petroleum investments, rates of return, forecasting cash flows and the fundamentals of capital budgeting.

This course is intended to help development geologists (and geophysicists) with 0 - 2 years’ experiences to quickly become effective contributors to field development. Workflow, well planning, support and post-well evaluation will be covered.
Houston Texas United States 06 December, 2016 08 December, 2016 13606

6-8 December 2016

Here is an introduction to the tools and techniques that geologists and geophysicists use to locate gas and oil, that drillers use to drill the wells and that petroleum engineers use to test and complete the wells and produce the gas and oil. Exercises throughout the course provide practical experience in well log correlation, contouring, interpretation of surface and subsurface, contoured maps, seismic interpretation, well log interpretation, and decline curve analysis.

Workshop

Houston, Texas, United States
1-2 December 2016

Welcome to a workshop in which we will bring together experts, equipment providers, robotics experts, and others knowledgeable in a wide range of commercial drone usage, which includes monitoring in the oil industry, digital outcrop surveying, safety and security monitoring, utility inspection, real estate, agriculture, construction, environmental protection, and more.

5-6 October 2016

The goal of this workshop is to review mature fields and to identify the amount and nature of oil that can be recovered, and to evaluate competing strategies for economically producing the remaining reserves. In addition to looking closely at fields, we will review new and improved technologies that may help revitalize reservoirs and overcome problems such as low pressure, paraffin, corrosion, and more. We will identify companies willing to offer a “no money down” approach, or other forms of innovative financing. In addition to reviewing the technology, we will review case studies.
