Along with the rest of the world, the AAPG-YP London Chapter did not escape the repercussions of the gloomy pandemic; adapting to the virtual world was necessary. In the “normal” world, attending a career fair has always been a top priority for any graduating geoscientist, especially in these challenging times for the industry when many jobs have been cut off. On the other hand, many new jobs have sprung up with the energy transition. What are the transferable skills? Is it still worthwhile to get a master’s degree in an oil and gas-related field? Is it still possible to have a career in oil and gas? These were just some of the vital and timely questions raised at the virtual career fair organized in December by the YP London Chapter members.

Since its inception in 1994, the Middle East Geosciences Conference and Exhibition series – or, “GEO,” as it is better known – has grown to become the main geosciences event in the Middle East Region and beyond, providing a platform for knowledge sharing, exchange and dissemination as well as an excellent opportunity to interact with major upstream companies, service providers and academia. The GEO Executive Committee made the decision to postpone the event to Oct. 4-7, 2021 in response to the global spread of COVID-19.

For those of you who have enjoyed a career in exploration and even for those of you new to exploration (particularly IBA alums), AAPG has an opportunity for you to become involved in teaching students in the IBA program to achieve a greater understanding of the basin in which they are exploring for hydrocarbons. That is, to be an industry mentor to a requesting school for a coach, as in the Global Mentor program or to continue to be an IBA coach in 2021 at a previously identified school.

From basic inspection to maintenance, predicting the corrosion in production pipelines, study production history and history matching in reservoir analysis or even predicting geomechanical parameters for new wells in the same field for drilling programs in exploration, artificial intelligence has all that potential to be adapted in order to enhance the qualities of the oil and gas industry in every particular sector mentioned above or even beyond. In countries especially Asian countries like Indonesia which have a relatively high human population, the demands of energy will keep on rising dynamically with the development of technology and globalization. This situation we are facing would eventually need more efficacy to reach those numbers of demands on energy.
