Worldwide attention is attracted to Latin America and the Caribbean as exploration of Cretaceous targets continues into frontier areas, especially within the deep water Caribbean/Atlantic margin. Challenges lie not only in identifying targets but also in establishing ways to commercialize them. Current understandings of the environmental impact, depth to target formations, technological considerations and production methods, will benefit from focused discussions by regional experts utilizing case studies to highlight the most recent developments in these fields.
To advance understanding and promote knowledge sharing, the AAPG Latin America Region and the Geological Society of Trinidad & Tobago will co-host GTW T&T 2013. The workshop is organized into four sessions.
As we retrace geological history through to the Cretaceous, closing the Atlantic Ocean, and bringing together the eastern margin of South America and the western margin of Africa, so too are we attempting to bring together, share and benefit from the learnings and exploration experiences along these continental and oceanic plate margins.
