    PCPG Review Course Participant / Future ASBOG® Exam Candidate:

    The components of this seminar are aligned with the general subject areas contained in the ASBOG® Geologist Examinations.  However, the course is not intended as a sole-source for your test preparation.  It is instead a proven resource and guide for your further preparation efforts.  As such, the course provides a concentrated review and a general refresher for the practicing, Professional Geologist.

    During this seminar about one hour is devoted to review a full-semester, college course.  Day Two will include access to material about ASBOG® and the examinations, including test blueprints that are in the public domain.  The seminar is not intended as a "How to take the Test" review.  Seminar registrants take this course 6 to 12 months from their intended exam date with the understanding that significant, additional preparation will be needed prior to sitting for their examination.

    We are certain that you will find the provided information helpful to your preparation, enabling you to better succeed in the ASBOG® Examinations.

    Overview:  The occurrence and origin of methane in aquifer systems has become an emerging focus in areas of unconventional shale gas development in the Appalachian Basin.  Methane occurrence in an aquifer system may be a natural condition, the result of legacy conditions or due to recent activity.  Evaluation at the site-specific level to include time series gas and groundwater geochemistry data, and mechanism of migration are fundamental to define methane origin and source.  This course will provide an outline for sampling and laboratory variability, principals of methane migration, evaluation of time series geochemistry data and variability in the gas geochemistry of the N. Appalachian Basin.
