Producers finally got some relief in 2021. Oil and gas prices recovered from their pandemic lows and remained at high levels through most of the year, as increased production could not keep pace with a global demand recovery. It was a year when higher prices helped energy producers strengthen their balance sheets and improve their bottom lines.

One of the more provocative but less publicized initiatives introduced at the recent United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow is an international effort to end oil and gas exploration and production. The Beyond Oil and Gas Alliance, created by Denmark and Costa Rica, officially launched its program at COP26.

The pandemic has been a challenge for all networking and social events but geologists have a history of seeking interaction with our friends and colleagues, regardless of the number of people around us – whether at a conference or couch, it makes no matter! This well-known fact inspired the AAPG Women’s Network and the Association for Women Geoscientists to kick-off a series of online networking and educational events that have fondly become known as the “Geology of” series. Everything we love has an underlying geologic aspect, and the “Geology of” series explores the links between geologic components such as climate, bedrock, soil and water chemistry. Two events have been hosted thus far in 2021: “Geology of Wine,” which saw more than 80 attendees, and “Geology of Beer,” which drew more than 500.

Maria Capello said being named AAPG Distinguished Lecturer was her “hat trick.” She has now been a Distinguished or Honorary Lecturer for three major professional societies including AAPG, the Society of Exploration Geophysicists and Society of Petroleum Engineers (twice). Her tenure as AAPG lecturer will begin soon with 20-30 lectures planned, some virtual and some in person, on the topic of “Coupling Geoethics to Sustainability.” The role will once again take her to a number of countries around the globe.

Explorer Historical Highlights

You might not know her name, but you definitely know her work. When you imagine the ocean floor, it is probably the Marie Tharp map that you see. As a major key to understanding plate tectonics, her work led to many important developments in identifying offshore drilling targets. The maps were displayed at the 100th anniversary of the Library of Congress in the Jefferson Building, along with treasures that included a rough draft of the Declaration of Independence, the Emancipation Proclamation and Lewis and Clark’s journals.

You could call it destiny – Sabrina Ewald’s family history, after all, is dominated by those who either worked in the oil industry or were teachers. “These experiences shaped my plan for the future, and I always had two ideas of what I wanted to do with my life – geologist or teacher,” she said. Guess what won out?

Over the past year, the AAPG Women’s Network has been working on a proposal to move the AAPGWN from a special interest group to a new technical division of AAPG. The previous co-chair of AAPGWN, Terra George posted an article on LinkedIn which brought attention to the need for a formal transition to a division. Since then, AAPGWN has engaged in many activities to serve the greater energy geoscience community in an effort to accelerate culture change within the AAPG. Only now, because of Terra’s candid letter to AAPG’s leadership, along with the tremendous effort from the AAPGWN leadership and volunteer base, does AAPGWN have enough momentum and leadership to strive for division status.
