Fundamentals of Basin Evaluation and Petroleum Systems Analysis: Play-Based Exploration
12:30-5:30 p.m. Saturday September 24, 2011
Jefferson Room, Hyatt Regency Crystal City, VA
This four hour short course is designed to introduce the participant to the fundamentals of basin analysis and the evaluation of petroleum systems. Following a brief lecture, the students will work in teams to evaluate, delineate, and describe the critical elements of a working hydrocarbon province. You will learn about the variety of maps you need to produce for an evaluation, how to build play element maps on a specific reservoir interval, summary play maps that describe how the “play” works, and where the sweet-spots are located. These products are the foundation of all successful hydrocarbon evaluations.
Registration is limited to the first 24 students to sign up, please don’t be a no-show.

The Eastern Section is fast becoming an energy hub with several new high profile hydrocarbon plays in their infancy or just taking off. The 2011 AAPG Salary Survey revealed that graduates holding an MS degree and 0 to 2 years experience earn an average of $96,000 per year. An aging work force requires that a large number of new hires will be required to fill projected staff needs.
