Geologists, engineers, geophysicists and entrepreneurs are invited to the Mid-Continent Playmakers Forum on May 11 in Oklahoma City at the headquarters of the Oklahoma Geological Society.

The Playmakers forums are just one of the ways AAPG’s Division of Professional Affairs (DPA) offers new opportunities for professional development and networking.

The primary purpose of these forums is to bring leaders from industry to present their ideas, successes and even failures in developing new plays. A secondary purpose is to provide training for professionals in prospect generation and presentations. The key to the success of Playmaker’s is most of the speakers are predominantly invited, technical experts on active plays.

Discussions will include:

  • Majors to mid-size independents to small private equities – Roles in the unconventional development of the Anadarko Basin.
  • The private equity explosion – How to raise and make money during a long period of stressed commodity prices.
  • Keys to extending mature resource plays and exploring new unconventional opportunities.
  • Science wells—How to make efficient use of all that data.

The forum will also include a Discovery Thinking presentation by AAPG President-Elect Charles Sternbach, “The AAPG Century – Giant Fields through the Decades,” as well as presentations from representatives of Devon Energy, Tecolote Energy, Council Oak Resources, Panther II, BlueJacket Energy and others.
