WRM 2000 Call for Papers

"Working In Concert"

The Pacific Section of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (PSAAPG) and the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) are "Working In Concert" and invite you to submit an abstract for presentation at the Western Regional Meeting to be held June 19-22, 2000 at the Westin Hotel in Long Beach, California. Other participating professional societies include the PSSEPM, SEG, SPWLA, AEG, DPA, DEG, EMD and AIPG.

The technical focus of this first joint regional meeting between the PSAAPG and SPE is to demonstrate how petroleum technology is demanding further collaboration between earth scientists and engineers. The technical sessions will address exploration trends, recent E&P achievements, and the use of advanced technologies to further develop our bountiful oil and gas fields in the western United States. A new highlight is our plan to showcase our industry's efforts to form lasting partnerships with our communities and schools.

We are taking the best elements of the PSAAPG and SPE meetings to enhance your learning experience, while still retaining the unique flair of each organization. The technical sessions will complement a wide array of field trips and short courses, a public area to present our industry's history and future, and a centrally located Exhibition area. We are pleased to announce that our Keynote Speaker will be Dr. Harrison Schmitt, the Apollo 17 astronaut, scientist, U.S. Senator, and AAPG member.

We are seeking presentations in the following (but not limited to) technical categories with respect to operations in the western United States (tech category # beside item):

1. Geology and Geophysics
2.4.7. New and Old Oil and Gas Basins
2.4.7. Exploration Frontiers: Offshore and Deep Drilling

The technical program offers many ways to participate, including oral and half-day poster sessions, workshops, and panel sessions. Traditionally, SPE requires papered presentations and the PSAAPG requires only abstracts. We encourage both geologists and engineers to write papers to promote the advanced technology of your company and for your personal career growth. All abstracts and papers will be published in the Technical Proceedings for this meeting.

Please submit AAPG and SPE abstracts to SPE. When completing the abstract form, we want to know your society affiliations, the type of presentation format, and which professional society will be assigned the publishing rights to your abstract and/or paper. We will consider abstracts on topics other than those listed above if they are relevant to the target audience. Please submit your Abstract on the form provided on the SPE Homepage at www.spe.org/events/2000wrm/submitting.html . Abstracts may also be submitted by email or fax by using the reverse side of this form. The abstract deadline is 10 December 1999. Authors will be notified in mid-January 2000.
