Tectonic Evolution of Myanmar and its Basin Development with Special References to its Petroleum Occurrences

14-15 August 2014
Yangon, Myanmar

Myanmar is in the spotlight today, as rapid change has led to international access. While so much focus has been on new commercial realities, the underlying fundamentals of the country’s geology deserve just as much consideration if these new investors are to be successful. To improve your understanding of Myanmar tectonic history and basin development, register now for the first AAPG Conference co-convened with the Myanmar Geosciences Society.

Targeted at a geological audience, the forum focuses on the tectonic evolution and basin development of Myanmar, with reference to petroleum systems. Understanding of geology continues to be crucial in uncovering existing and new plays in the face of limited success with seismic methods.

The event brings together experts from Myanmar and around the world to explain the regional context and wider analogues, before diving into the details of the development of basins that has led to a number of petroleum systems: from the oil-rich Central Burma Basin, to the biogenic gas of the Rakhine Basin, and the wet gas of the Moattama Basin. There are still slots available to share your expertise.
