Summertime is fast approaching, so we invite you to "Go to Summer School with AAPG!" We have a variety of short courses and field seminars to help you brush up on your skills in the next several months.

First, several courses are set for May, including:

  • John Balsley's trip on "Foreland Basin Clastic Reservoirs, Book Cliffs, Utah," which will take place May 16-24.
  • Two international trips on carbonates are slated: "Equatorial Carbonate Systems" in Indonesia, May 22-28, and "Complex Carbonate Reservoirs" in Italy, May 22-27.
  • "Depositional Sequence Stratigraphy of Fluvial-Deltaic Deposits" will be offered May 29-June 4, in Utah.
  • A new course on "Overview of the Subsurface Petroleum Geology of Northern South America," scheduled in Houston for May 23-24.

Also there is still time to register for several offerings that will be held before and after the AAPG Annual Convention in Calgary, including:

  • The popular short course on "Risk Analysis for Development Applications," June 18-19, taught by Rose & Associates.
  • Two exciting field seminars: The pre-convention trip is "Carbonate Reservoir Characterization: From Rocks to Fluid Flow Simulation Using Sequence Stratigraphy, Paradox Basin, Utah," offered June 14-18 and beginning and ending in Durango, Colo.; the post-convention trip is the top-rated GeoTour on "Grand Canyon Geology via the Colorado River, Arizona", offered June 23-30.

Seats in this one are going fast, so if you want to sign up for this once-in-a-lifetime experience, you need to act quickly.

Other summer short course offerings are:

  • A new short course, "Rock Properties of Tight Gas Sandstones," being offered in Denver July 21. Understanding and developing tight gas sands seem to be in high demand these days, so be the first in your office to get a handle on this exciting area of exploration.
  • Our always-in-demand course on "Basic Well Log Analysis" returns Aug. 9-12, in Austin, Texas, taught by well logging experts George Asquith and Dan Krygowski. The course is a necessity for entry-level geologists, and mid-level professionals who may find their job skill needs shifting or need a refresher.

Finally, the summer lineup of field seminars is designed to get you out on the rocks and back to nature. They include:

  • In July, "Lewis & Clark GeoTour" (Montana), "Predicting Clastic Reservoirs Using Applied Sequence Stratigraphy" (Utah and Wyoming) and "Deltaic and Turbidite Reservoir Systems of Southeast Asia"(Malaysia).
  • In August, "Fundamentals of Coalbed Methane E&P" (Utah).
