Seismic Interpretation in Fold-and-Thrust Belts: Field Trip to the Southern Canadian Rocky Mountain Foreland

Written by Susan Nash on Apr 17 2014 | field seminars

Interested in furthering your understanding of interpretation of seismic
data in fold-and-thrust belts? Discover how at AAPG Education’s Field Seminar, Seismic Interpretation in Fold-and-Thrust Belts: Field Trip to the Southern Canadian Rocky Mountain Foreland. Lead by John H. Shaw, a professor of Structural and Economic Geology at Harvard University, and Frank Bilotti, an Exploration Team Leader at Chevron they will provide participants with insights into seismic interpretation of thrust and reverse faults, detachment surfaces, fault-bend folds and much more on structural geology. Throughout this seven day trip attendees will have the opportunity to view several locations each day that will showcase new concepts and how they apply to seismic interpretation projects. This field seminar will be taking place July 20-26, 2014 …


Canoeing with Lewis & Clark: A Geologic Excursion along the Missouri in Montana

Written by Susan Nash on Apr 14 2014 | field seminars

Experience an exciting six day journey through Montana by discovering the complex geology along the upper Missouri River. Explore the sights of this geologic landscape just as Lewis and Clark did over two centuries ago. This field seminar will be lead by William Hansen, an Independent Oil & Gas Geological Consultant. Hansen will discuss many tales of their expedition, along with specific accounts of descriptive notes and drawings taken by both Lewis and Clark. Participants will have a first hand look into these numerous detailed accounts of the geological terrain that are still recognizable over 200 years later. Don’t miss this opportunity see Montana through the eyes of Lewis and Clark. Join us, July 14-19, 2014 in Great Falls Montana. …


New Insights and Developments of the Gulf of Mexico Basin

Written by Susan Nash on Apr 11 2014 | e-Symposium

The Gulf of Mexico (GOM) basin is one of the richest hydrocarbon basins of the world, with estimated hydrocarbon endowment exceeding 140 BBOE. The foundation of such a rich endowment is the unique confluence of sedimentary processes, ranging from a continental-scale drainage system network, robust depositional systems, unusual extrabasinal perturbations, and long-lived salt tectonics. This combination of factors has allowed the GOM to continue to “reinvent itself”, generating new exploration plays both onshore and offshore, suprasalt to subsalt, fluvial to deep-water, conventional and unconventional reservoirs. The surprising emergence of several new exploration plays and new ideas on the basin history demonstrates that we have much more to learn and harvest from this natural laboratory of sedimentary processes.

Play Concepts and Controls on Porosity in Carbonate Reservoir Analogs

Written by Susan Nash on Apr 07 2014 | field seminars

Catered towards petroleum geologist, engineers, geophysicists, and geoscientists this field trip is designed to provide an introduction to interpreting carbonate sedimentology, stratigraphy, and diagenesis. During this seminar, trip leaders and participants will work together to examine a wide variety of carbonate facies types, discuss various types of unconformities, relationships and interactions of evaporites, and many other related field seminar topics.

Join us June 1-6, 2014 in Las Negras, Spain to experience first-hand concepts and controls of carbonate reservoirs analogs. Space for this field seminar is limited, act now before spots fill and prices increase.
For more information: Field Seminar: Play Concepts and Controls

The objectives of this field seminar are to provide educational opportunities on the following:

  • Depositional and diagenetic models for carbonates …
