Deepwater Reservoirs: AAPG Geosciences Technology Workshop

We’re going to do something a little bit different in this GTW. In addition to field studies, case studies, and applications of new technologies, we plan to incorporate hands-on exploration and appraisal field assessment, and a drilling / development decision-making problem.  It will be challenging, and you will take away very practical knowledge. If you’d like to have a copy of the problem sets in anticipation of the workshop, please send an email to  In the meantime, here are a few of the accepted talks.  We still have a few slots available, and we welcome posters. Please contact us today!
