AAPG will hold its “Drones and UAVs: Solving Problems, Finding Resources” Geoscience Technology Workshop in Houston next month.
The two-day event will be held at Houston’s CityCentre Norris Conference Center, May 23-24.
The goal of the workshop is to identify and describe how drones and UAVs using new sensors and analytics may help optimize the exploration and production of oil and gas, and to reduce costs and find innovative cost-saving solutions for problems.
The presentations will demonstrate the capability of the new technologies to solve existing problems in less expensive and more efficient ways that current solutions. They will also demonstrate the use of new technologies for discovering new reserves of oil and gas.
The workshop will consist of 45-minute presentations by experts and operators on case studies, technical solutions, and emerging new practices.
One of the presentations will be “Geiger-mode LiDAR: Efficient collection for digital terrain mapping and feature classification” by Conse Vecchio of Harris Corporation, which is a Platinum sponsor for the workshop.
“They are developing an amazing set of new sensors that can potentially revolutionize the oil industry, both in exploration and production – exploration through detecting anomalies and production through helping monitor and protect the environment,” said Susan Nash, AAPG’s director of innovation emerging science and technology.
There will also be presentations by representatives of Drone View Services, Bama Consulting Services, Aeroscan Solutions, Weatherford and others.
