The AAPG 2007 Education Calendar is in the final production stages, and when it’s delivered to you in an upcoming EXPLORER you’ll see all of the exciting things being planned.
Meanwhile, some valuable training opportunities are available for you this fall as well.
• There is still time (but not much!) to sign up for a new field seminar on Deepwater Siliciclastic Reservoirs, set Sept. 17-22, beginning and ending in San Francisco.
This course provides an appreciation of the broad range of deepwater reservoir facies, the mechanisms by which they were deposited, predictive attributes, reservoir heterogeneity and stratigraphic architecture.
The course is taught by Stephan Graham and Don Lowe from Stanford University.
• The short course Practical Mapping of Surfaces, Properties and Volumes for Reservoir Characterization, held in conjunction with the SEG meeting in New Orleans is set Sept. 30-Oct. 1.
The course is intended for professionals wanting to understand more about the geostatistical methodology.
The instructor is Jeffrey Yarus.
• A course just added to our slate, set for Oct. 7 at the Eastern Section meeting in Buffalo, N.Y., is Reservoir Engineering for Geologists, taught by Rich Green.
This popular course offers a broad understanding of the factors that influence the production of oil and gas from reservoirs.
Bonus: This course will have a discounted tuition, and additional discounts are available for DPA members.
• Norm Hyne’s Basic Petroleum Geology for Non-Geologists will be held Dec. 5-7 in Houston, co-sponsored by AAPG and the University of Tulsa’s Continuing Engineering and Science Education Department.
• The fourth annual Winter Education Conference is just around the corner, offering perennial favorites and several new exciting courses. Check out the ad in this issue for the list of courses included.
The conference will be held Feb. 12-16 in Houston, so start making plans now to attend!
