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 …

A Journey Through the Geological Story of the Colorado Plateau

Written by Susan Nash on Apr 04 2014 | field seminars

Take a seven day trek through Grand Canyon National Park (South Rim), Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Bryce Canyon National Park, and Zion National Park. This field seminar will provide participants with a working knowledge of the geological, archaeological and natural history of the Colorado Plateau as revealed at Grand Canyon, Zion, and Bryce Canyon National Parks and other localities on the Colorado Plateau. By attending, geologists, educators and students will have a first hand opportunity to observe and understand many of the principles that established the science of geology along with a comprehensive journey into the geological story of this fascinating landscape. Join us on this remarkable excursion May 31-June 6, 2014. For more information: Geology of Grand Canyon, …
