Bulletin Article

Biomarker fingerprints of oils of the southcentral Oklahoma oil province are nearly identical to those of Goddard Formation extracts. Thus, these oils appear to originate from a Mississippian source such as the Goddard rather than the Woodford Shale as previously assumed.

Fault damage zones may significantly affect subsurface fluid migration and the development of unconventional resources. Most analyses of fault damage zones are based on direct field observations, and we expand these analyses to the subsurface by investigating the damage zone structure of an approximately 32-km (∼105-ft)-long right-lateral strike-slip fault in Oklahoma.

Explorer Division Column DPA


The Division of Professional Affairs has been busy in the first half of 2019. The DPA’s charge is deepening and expanding geoscience professionalism. We achieve this directive in many ways, one being the strengthening of our business acumen.

I keep this phrase posted on my workstation. It is a constant reminder that optimism is one of the greatest skills we can possess as petroleum geologists. Optimism toward our future, our prospects, our companies and ourselves is a key to success in our careers as professional geologists.

Explorer Emphasis


On April 11, the University of Tulsa announced an alignment – a “Reimagining,” it was called – of its curriculum and identity. It is a plan that will cut its majors by more than 40 percent, from 196 to 112. These cuts will hit the humanities the hardest – and these get the lion’s share of the media coverage – but the reductions in programs and degrees are not just limited to theater, music, philosophy and foreign languages. The school’s Department of Geosciences will also be hobbled when the plan takes effect.

Explorer Geophysical Corner


In Oklahoma, seismic reflection data from different areas show distinct, systematic patterns of reflectors within depth intervals dominated by the crystalline basement. It is necessary to better understand the origin and composition of these characteristic layers in the Oklahoma basement, as it will fill a major gap in the understanding of its tectonic and thermal history.

Explorer President’s Column


I received my 40-year certificate from AAPG. At the bottom it reads, “In Recognition and Appreciation of your Loyalty to AAPG,” but it is I who should be thanking AAPG for allowing me to be part of this great organization. AAPG allowed me to network and make contacts with smarter people than me and to learn and expand my knowledge base. This is a great profession, and I have found a career in the geological sciences to be extremely rewarding.

The Unconventional Resources Technology Conference was held this year in Denver, Colo., and once again, it did not disappoint. It was packed with technical presentations and exhibits and it continued to push boundaries and remain as the premier industry event focused on the latest science and technology in exploration and development of unconventional resources.
