The Preservation of GeoScience Data committee (PGDC) within the AAPG is pleased to put on two displays as part of the exhibition/poster session at the forthcoming AAPG convention in Houston 2017. One display will be of Cores and the other of Data/Media.
Oil and 100 Gas discoveries over the last years have seen changes and shifts in the plays, traps and reservoirs over the decades. From marine, lacustrine, fluvial or aeolian sandstones, shelf carbonates, chalks and reefs, and even volcanics, to the present day oil “shale” deposits, the industry is forever seeking new and innovative sources from which to extract the much needed hydrocarbons to keep our world our moving and warm. The display of cores put on by the PGDC will attempt to represent the major reservoir and play types that have resulted in giant or significant oil and gas fields over the last 100 years. Each table will aim to display cores representing the significant play or reservoir types that were dominant during each decade or that typified the giant or major fields in that era. The cores will be displayed across ten tables, one for each decade, with posters behind each table to show the geology of the field or play from which the core is taken.
The PGDC proposes to put on a second display of data and media through the last 100 years. This will include examples of early logs and seismic on paper and film to show how the amount and format of data and information has changed. The display will also include examples of different storage media types including tape reels, cassettes, cartridges and disks that have increased in capacity as the demands from industry required more and more data to be stored. This display will be both nostalgic for the older members but also we hope of interest to younger members who may only have heard of 9-track tapes and VHS cartridges etc.
