Free Webinar

Low-temperature geothermal resources represent a significant opportunity for companies involved in oil and gas exploration and production, and you’ll learn how in our new, free e-symposium offered by AAPG Education. Low-temperature geothermal resources can be co-produced with oil and gas, with numerous commercial applications.  It’s a great lead-in to our 4-week e-certificate course, Geothermal Basics.

Giant Oil Fields

There are more approximately 1,000 oil and gas fields in the world that have been classified as “giant,” containing more than 500 million barrels of recoverable oil and /or 3 trillion cubic feet of gas.  This course will cover the structure, stratigraphy, and production history of the fields and an analysis of effective exploration, production, and enhanced oil recovery methods.

Look into this top-flight e-symposium — Evaluating Mature Fields:

Here’s an exciting upcoming event –  New Ways to Look at Old Data 2-day workshop:

Carbon Capture and Sequestration: An Introduction

This course covers the fundamental concepts involved in carbon capture and sequestration, and explains the geological conditions required for successful carbon storage.  It profiles extraction, transportation, injection, and monitoring of CO2.

Website will be available on September 30, 2010.
