AIPG Ohio Section Promotes and Supports the Geologic Profession in Ohio

The primary goal of the American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) Ohio Section is to be the principal advocate for geology and the geologic profession in Ohio, and to promote high ethical standards and continuing career development for our members. In addition, the Ohio Section of AIPG functions as a liaison between Members and the geologic community, state and local government, and general public. If you are a geologist or geology student in the state of Ohio, we encourage you to seek the qualifications for full or student membership and professional certification in AIPG.

Mission: The AIPG Ohio Section is to be recognized as the principal advocate for geology and the geologic profession in Ohio that promotes high ethical standards and continuing career development

Overview of Permian Basin Stacked Pays – the Gift That Keeps on Giving

Steven P. Zody - Zody Geoscience, LLC

Production from the Permian Basin of west Texas and New Mexico has sharply accelerated, recently exceeding 4 million BOPD. The stratigraphic column of the region offers a unique combination of organic rich mudrocks, siliciclastics, and carbonates. The current configuration of the basin resulted from tectonic activity during the Ouachita orogeny which formed two distinct basins – Midland and Delaware – separated by the Central Basin Platform. Repeated cycles of high stand systems tracts and low stand systems tracts deposited over 3000 feet of stacked pays in some areas. During high stands, allochthonous carbonate debris and organic mudrocks were deposited in the basins, while carbonate build ups flourished on platforms. Low stand phases resulted in platform exposure/erosion while siliciclastic deposits via turbidity currents created lowstand wedges, channels, and fan complexes in the basins. In addition, favorable thermal maturation and overpressure contribute to the prolific nature of these rocks. The “Spraberry Trend” of the Midland Basin, once considered “the world’s largest uneconomic oil field” has transformed into some of the most valuable acreage in the world.

Steve is an AAPG and SIPES certified petroleum geoscientist with over thirty years of integrated oil & gas exploration and development experience in several basins in the U.S. Steve has been responsible for drilling many wells in west Texas, southeast New Mexico, and the Michigan and Appalachian Basins. After beginning his career in 1988 with Mobil Exploration and Production in Midland, TX, he worked the Michigan Basin for Savoy Oil and Gas. In 1995, he founded Zody Geoscience and worked as an oil and gas prospector and consultant focusing on Trenton and Knox projects. In addition, he evaluated and made recommendations on over $10 billion and 500,000 acres of prospective Permian Basin assets for SM Energy. He worked with Exploration & BD teams to generate petrophysical models, play maps, and EUR trends. He has experience in both conventional and unconventional plays, 2D & 3D seismic interpretation, and enhanced recovery projects. Steve earned a B.S. in Geology from Ashland College in 1986 and an M.S. in Geology from New Mexico Institute of Mining & Technology in 1988.

OGS Scholarship
2019-2020 Application for Scholarship for Member’s Children and Student Members
The Ohio Geological Society (OGS) is sponsoring a scholarship for the upcoming academic year (2019-2020). This award is for $1,500.00. The award will be determined by the OGS Scholarship Committee and announced at the May 2019 meeting of the Society. The award will be paid directly to the student, not to the educational institution.

Essay Topic
This year’s (2019-2020) Essay Topic is:

Given: Increased petroleum production in the United States has resulted in lower prices for gasoline and other products. Is this a positive or a negative for the petroleum industry in Ohio and the United States in general? Please give at least one or more positive and one or more negative aspect, and explain why (in your opinion) you think the positive or the negative aspect(s) outweigh the other. There is no right or wrong conclusion. Just support your opinion.

Applications will be accepted until April 22, 2019

Currents #119 investigated the representation of women in geoscience faculty positions in the United States. To extend that conversation of gender representation in the geosciences, NSF’s 2013 restricted-use data file integrating the National Survey of College Graduates and the Survey of Doctoral Recipients was used to look at the representation of women in the geoscience workforce as a whole. Overall, women made up 34% of the geoscience workforce in 2013. When those individuals were broken into their age groups, it is clear that the representation of women in the geoscience workforce has increased with time.
Geoscience Currents #120 shows the representation of women by age in the geoscience workforce, including within various industries in 2013.

[08/18/17]   Registration is now open for the AIPG Ohio Section's October 2017 Vapor Intrusion Short Course. Vapor intrusion (VI) is the migration of undesirable chemical components into indoor airspace and is one of the primary routes of human exposure to volatile organic compounds released to the subsurface. This short course will cover many aspects of VI, including the physical processes governing subsurface vapor transport and entry into buildings, assessment, monitoring and mitigation strategies, risk analysis, legal aspects, case studies and field demonstrations. CEUs will be available and we are working with Ohio EPA to get VAP PDHUs for Certified Professionals that attend. For more information visit https://www.aipg-ohio.org/eventdetails.php.
