Take Advantage of Remaining Vacation Season

Spotlight on Education

AAPG has several opportunities in the next several weeks for those who want to make vacation time last a little longer by taking a field seminar. There also are short courses to help you brush up on much-needed skills (and earn Professional Development Hours, too).

First up is a class for those office staffers who could benefit from knowing the basics of geology; there’s still time to register for Norm Hyne’s “Basic Petroleum Geology for Non-Geologists” course, set Aug. 29-31, in Houston.

AAPG has several opportunities in the next several weeks for those who want to make vacation time last a little longer by taking a field seminar. There also are short courses to help you brush up on much-needed skills (and earn Professional Development Hours, too).

First up is a class for those office staffers who could benefit from knowing the basics of geology; there’s still time to register for Norm Hyne’s “Basic Petroleum Geology for Non-Geologists” course, set Aug. 29-31, in Houston.

And in September the AAPG education department is offering five exciting field seminars. They are:

  • Modern Deltas, Sept. 11-15, covers the sedimentary architecture of deltas. Course begins in Baton Rouge, La., and ends in New Orleans.
  • Fractures, Folds and Faults in Thrusted Terrains, Sept. 11-16, for geoscientists to understand the geology and complexity of exploring in thrust belts, with examples from the spectacular Sawtooth Range. Course will begin and end in Great Falls, Mont.
  • Deepwater Siliciclastic Reservoirs, Sept. 17-22, a new course focused on the broad range of deepwater reservoir facies. The course will begin and end in San Francisco.
  • Modern Terrigenous Clastic Depositional Environments, Sept. 19-26, covers the sedimentology, facies architecture and sequence stratigraphy of modern terrigenous clastic depositional systems in tidal estuarine, incised valley, shelf, shoreface barrier island, fluvial and alluvial environments. This seminar begins in Columbia, and ends in Charleston, S.C.
  • Sedimentology and Sequence Stratigraphic Response of Paralic Deposits to Changes in Accommodation: Predicting Reservoir Architecture -- Book Cliffs, Utah, Sept. 21-28, demonstrates how a combination of detailed sedimentology and stratigraphy are used in a sequence stratigraphic approach to aid in the prediction of reservoir facies at both the exploration and production scale. This trip begins and ends in Grand Junction, Colo.

Those preferring indoor education will have six powerful courses to choose from in AAPG’s first annual Fall Education Conference, to be held Sept. 11-15 in Houston. The theme is “Deepwater Exploration.”

The conference features three concurrent sessions each day -- and badges can be shared with co-workers during the week.
