SEG, AAPG, and in conjunction with SEPM are hosting the second annual International Meeting for Applied Geoscience and Energy (IMAGE), 28 August–2 September in Houston, Texas at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
IMAGE ’22 has been designed and built by industry professionals as the place for geoscientists, energy professionals, and thought leaders to meet and shape the future of applied geosciences and energy. It will provide an influential platform for sharing best practices, discovering solutions, and developing new perspectives and strategies to challenge and plan for what’s ahead.
World-class offshore and onshore energy resources await discovery and development across Africa. With the recent pandemic and climate change, now is the time to pool our experience and look forward to planning strategic change.

EAGE GEOTECH – THE SECOND EAGE GEOSCIENCE TECHNOLOGIES AND APPLICATIONS CONFERENCE AND EXHIBITION 2022
WELCOME FROM LOCAL ADVISORY CHAIR
Subsurface & the Energy Transition: Challenging the Status Quo
With gas and advantaged oil continuing to underpin evolving energy portfolios for decades to come and the need for carbon storage rising, coupled with growing footprints in renewable energy such as wind and geothermal, the need for subsurface talent will remain strong.
EAGE GeoTech 2022 plans to bring together a diverse audience of experts to focus on key challenges across the subsurface domain. This year’s workshops will seek to address how we optimise our maturing fields, advance the dial in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and explore the role of fibre in monitoring and verification.
Why did you choose a scientific faculty after high school? Can you tell us about your career in Geoscience?
I always loved science, because it’s rigorous and logic, but also creative. I think it can help society by explaining why and how things happen leading to inventions and discoveries that support our livelihood. I’ve always been fascinated by how a problem can be solved in a logic and rigorous manner.
My first job as a geophysicist was in the field, acquiring electromagnetic and gravity data. It has been great fun; travelling around the world, working side by side with people from different background and cultures. After that I moved into processing, inversion and interpretation. Through my career I’ve been lucky enough to have seen the entire life cycle of the data we interpret. This allows me to better understand the strength and the pitfalls of our data.
I’ve been with Cairn Energy since 2011. Here I’ve been through exciting times and some disappointments, as part of the exploration cycle; it is a high risk business.
Geosciences are the core of the energy transition. It is within geological formations that high value oil and gas, a critical enabler, has formed, is explored for, and exploited. It is also within geological formations that wind turbines are founded, carbon dioxide will be stored, and other energy sources and critical minerals are found. Industry geoscientists will be highly relevant in the transition as only industry has the industrial capacity, technical and commercial human resources, financial capability, and project execution skills to facilitate the energy transition.
The Sixth International Conference on Fault and Top Seals will take place from 26-28 September 2022 in Vienna, Austria. Past conferences were highly successful in bringing together scientists from different industries (petroleum, CO2 storage and radioactive waste disposal) and academia, with a wide range of backgrounds (geology, petroleum engineering, petrophysics, geophysics, modelling, geomechanics and geochemistry) to share experiences in this field.
To reward outstanding university graduates specializing in areas related to the Energy Industry, SPE Italian Section (Society of Petroleum Engineers), EAGE (European Association of Geoscientists & Engineers) and Assorisorse (Sustainable Natural Resources and Energy) announce the 29th “Gustavo Sclocchi” Theses Award.
EAGE year-end training courses offer a great way to enhance your knowledge and get up-to-date with the latest developments across multiple disciplines.
The Pandemic years were challenging to keep active the SEG UniPG Students chapter and keep attracted to new coming students. It is important to keep active the chapter and evolve new students because the SEG provides an excellent platform to build a network and skillsets on both a professional and interpersonal level, which are critical for an early career scientist.
The second EAGE Conference on Seismic Inversion will be an event of interest to geoscientists working in both industry and in academia. Seismic Inversion is a key process used extensively in exploration, production and geohazard studies. Inversion provides a way to visualize and analyze data at higher resolution than standard seismic, facilitating the estimations of reservoir properties, and acting as a link between rock physics and seismically interpreted structure models, ultimately improving the interpretation efficiency.
The EAGE online courses bring carefully selected courses of experienced instructors from industry and academia online to give participants the possibility to follow the latest education in geoscience and engineering remotely.
The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) Student Chapter (SC) at the University of Pisa (UNIPI) was founded in 2009 with the support of the Emeritus Professor Alfredo Mazzotti, President of the master’s degree course in Exploration and Applied Geophysics at UNIPI, at the time.
AAPG’s Imperial Barrel Award Program (IBA) is an annual prospective basin evaluation competition for geoscience graduate students from universities around the world. University teams compete to win scholarship funds for their geoscience department and the international recognition that comes from competing or winning in the competition. The program is rigorous and contributes to AAPG’s mission of promoting petroleum geoscience training and advancing the careers of geoscience students. The judges will select the winning team based on the technical quality, clarity and originality of presentation.
Congratulation to Laura Bornatici elected as SEG District 7 Representative!
SEG GEOPHYSICS FIELD CAMP IN SOUTHERN ITALY 2021: “ACTIVE FAULTS”. The camp will be held in the so-called Mefite d’Ansanto (Rocca San Felice, AV). This site represents a premier target for high-resolution geophysical investigation, located in the Campanian-Lucanian Apennines at the northern termination of one of the faults ruptured during the 1980, M6.9, Irpinia earthquake.

EAGE Self-paced courses are offered on Learning Geoscience platform and include pre-recorded video lectures and quizzes that you can complete with your own schedule over a set period. A certificate of attendance will be available upon completion of all course requirements.
The Sixth International Conference on Fault and Top Seals will take place 26-28 September 2022 in Vienna, Austria.
Describing the properties of fault and top seals has been in the focus of different industries and applications. Not only do traditional methods of assessing fault and top seals remain crucial for exploration and production of petroleum reservoirs…
The Third EAGE Workshop on Marine Acquisition presents another opportunity to present and discuss the latest developments in marine acquisition technology and its applications. Recently, major global disruptions as well as the energy transition have forced both companies and individuals to rethink their strategies and the corresponding technology demand.
