Abstracts are still being sought for the next AAPG Hedberg Conference, which deals with “Heavy Oil -- Origin, Prediction and Production in Deepwaters.”

The abstract deadline, however, is fast approaching; abstracts must be submitted by Aug. 15.

The conference, sponsored by the AAPG Research Committee, will be held Oct. 8-10 in Veracruz, Mexico.

It is designed for experts from industry, academia and government agencies -- in both research and E&P activities -- to examine the mechanisms of formation of heavy oils; the pre-drill prediction and identification of these hydrocarbons; present and future technologies; and their potential importance to future oil production.

The technical program comprises posters and 30-minute talks, set around the themes:

  • Deepwater Setting -- Geology, Economics and Technology.
  • Oil Quality Controls -- Review and Case Studies.
  • Heavy Oil, Deepwater and Offshore Case Studies.
  • Comparison with Onshore Production Techniques -- State of the Art.

To submit an abstract, contact Debbi Boonstra in the AAPG education department at 918-560-2678.
