About the Event

The AAPG has set up a workshop in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia

I willl be presenting on the implications of holes in fault rock. We have been able to show that membraine seal is hard to justify in clastics. What can we take through to carbonates.

It looks like a good line up, Clair Bond is talking which is always good.

The AAPG background is .....


With the increasing demand on hydrocarbons and the decreased number and volumes of discoveries, there is a great necessity to find new exploration concepts. Over three days, the workshop will emphasize the importance of identifying new thinking and approaches to develop exploration concepts. Simple exploration ideas are already known and mostly discovered. The way forward is to identify new concepts by integrating different disciplines and to identify new opportunities. With accelerated advances in technology and massive data, the expectation is to understand further and become more successful in the exploration. With more well control, more seismic data and more subsurface data, the best approach is to integrate all disciplines to unlock further potential and to reduce uncertainty. The primary goal of this event is to bring industry professionals together to discuss challenges, new ideas, future trends and case studies. Main topics to be covered include:

  • Existing best practices of exploration
  • Under explored concepts (i.e. hydrodynamics, fractured basements)
  • The role of modeling in integrated exploration concepts
  • Innovative geophysical techniques for generating exploration prospects
  • Case studies of integrated multi-disciplines (geology, structure/tectonics, geophysics, petrophysics, geochemistry, engineering data etc.)
