AAPG Super Basins Topics

  • What makes each super basin unique and what can we learn from it?
  • What is the exploration/production history and what are the major plays with remaining potential, including conventional, unconventional, and field growth?
  • What are key innovations in each super basin: adoption of horizontal drilling, hydraulic stimulation, completing and drilling techniques, and seismic imaging that helped unlock the potential and what is needed for further growth?
  • How do “above ground” issues like politics, access, mineral ownership, and geography influence realizing the full resource potential of each super basin?
  • Will a basin be a regional or global disrupter?
  • What are the critical geoscience elements that contribute to success?
