Discover, explore and learn more of the Mississippian Limestone Play area. Geologists, geophysicists, engineers are encouraged to attend this one day course on exploration and development within the Mississippian system. Lynn Watney, a Senior Scientific Fellow at Kansas Geological Survey, will be presenting discussion on the structure, tectonics and stratigraphy of the Mississippian system. Through the use of exercises and case studies, attendees will learn how log interpretation plays a part in the exploration and development of this important play. This is one of many others at the 2014 AAPG Summer Education Conference and will be held Wednesday, June, 18 at the Summit Conference Center in Aurora, Colorado.

Event: Summer Education Conference
Presentation: Exploration and Development in the Mississippian System
Presenter(s): Lynn Watney – Kansas Geological Survey at the University of Kansas
Date: June 18,2014 (Wednesday)
Location: The Summit Conference Center, Aurora, Colorado
Who Should Attend
Geologists, geophysicists, engineers and anyone interested in exploring in the Mississippian Limestone Play area.
This 1-day course will include an introduction to many of the facets of the Mississippian Play, including stratigraphy, tectonics, depositional setting, drilling statistics, plays and subplays and analogs to other plays. Shelf-to-basin lithofacies will also be discussed. There will be several exercises and problem sets relating to log interpretation of the Mississippian oil and gas reservoirs, encompassing many of the different log types such as microresistivity, spectral gamma ray, NMR and core log calibration and electrofacies.
In the afternoon, several different case studies from the Kansas shelf will be shown, including Bindley, Schaben and Dickman Field; Welch-Bornholdt-Wherry Fields; Glick & Spivey-Grabs Basil Fields; and Wellington Field in the Sedgwick Basin.
NOTE: Please bring your laptop computer to this course as the notes will be available electronically and will be easier to follow along and work some of the exercises on your computer.
The fours concurrent sessions allow attendees to mix and match according to their interests and training needs. Courses for the conference may be purchased individually. These individual prices are reflected in the pricing on the course descriptions.
Course notes will be provided in digital format on CD only, so laptops with CD drives are required for all courses. If you do not have access to a laptop computer with a CD drive, please contact the AAPG Education Dept. for an alternate method to download the digital course notes.
