PaleoGIS Sponsors LoCrA for a Third Year

We are pleased to announce that Rothwell is entering its third year as a primary software sponsor of the Lower Cretaceous basin studies in the Arctic consortium (LoCrA). According to its website:

LoCrA is a consortium managed by the University of Stavanger and the University Centre in Svalbard [both in Norway] in cooperation with other universities [including The University of Texas at Austin Institute for Geophysics] to improve the knowledge of the basin configuration and fill of the Lower Cretaceous basins in the high Arctic in order to predict coarse-grained siliciclastic wedges as plays.

Meet Us at the AAPG 2015 Annual Convention & Exhibition

The consortium has 21 industry and government sponsors. Several consortium collaborators will present research at the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) 2015 Annual Convention & Exhibition (ACE) in Denver, June 1–4, including:

  • Tuesday, June 2: Afternoon Oral Sessions Reservoir Architecture of Deep Marine Rift Climax Deposits: An Outcrop Study From East Greenland, Presented by Sten-Andreas Grundvåg – Theme 4: From Chaos to Order: Reducing Reservoir Architecture Uncertainty in Deepwater Systems
  • Wednesday, June 3: Morning Oral Sessions Formation of the Gulf of Mexico Salt Basin, Presented by Ian Norton – Theme 5: Tectonic Evolution of Passive Margins

If you plan to be in Denver for the AAPG 2015 Annual Convention & Exhibition, please let us know! We welcome the opportunity to meet up or invite you to our offices.
