As so much in the oil and gas industry relies on expert interpretation over unstructured data and understanding of elaborate geological concepts, tracking the production and consumption of conceptual knowledge and information is crucial. Systems need to be developed that can capture these interpretative trails in order to meet the needs of exploration. IBM’s Hyperknowledge Trails may just be that system.

Taking fiber optics and downhole sensors to the next stage by creating 3D-printed customized Smart Pipes has the potential to not only make operations more efficient, but to easily convert depleted wells into producers of other energy sources, such as geothermal energy. Welcome to an interview with Alex Finch, part of the team of Tri-D Dynamics. He talks to us about their exciting new smart pipes and RFID (radio-frequency ID) technologies. Tri-D Dynamics will be participating in AAPG’s U-Pitch New Technology Showcase.

Being able to work remotely is more important than ever, and it is vital to have access to the powerful specialized software that you need in order to accomplish your tasks effectively and in a timely manner. In addition, it is important to be able to collaborate with your coworkers, team members, stakeholders, partners, and clients. Welcome to an interview with Vitaly Meyer describes how Petrocubic allows geoscientists and engineers to work remotely with the software and platforms they need.

Traveling to the Middle East is something that I get a lot of questions about, particularly from colleagues and friends in the United States and Europe who have never done so. Based on the headlines they read, they’re surprised to hear me say that it is one of my favorite places to travel. The people of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia warmly welcomed IPTC attendees, and a spirit of hospitality pervades cultures in the Middle East. You need to experience it. And next month we, AAPG, together with EAGE and SEG, will enable you to do just that as we launch GEO 2020, the 14th Middle East Geosciences Conference and Exhibition in Bahrain, with the theme “Geosciences in the Digital World: 2020 and Beyond.”

Last year was an exciting one in the AAPG Africa Region. Our young professionals population increased and we held a number of interesting YP-focused activities across the region with excellent feedback. We are very upbeat about 2020. We intend to build on the successes of the previous year by providing relevant technical education and networking opportunities for our YPs across the region.
