European Region Energy Conference
The technical program and registration both will be available in early June for the AAPG European Region Energy Conference and Exhibition, which will be held Nov. 18-21 in Athens, Greece.
The meeting, the first joint venture meeting between AAPG and the AAPG European Region, is built on the theme “Challenge Our Myths.”
It will offer more than 350 technical presentations -- 230-plus oral papers in five concurrent sessions, and 120 posters.
The sessions and exhibition all will be held in the Megaron International Conference Centre in the heart of Athens.
Technical program highlights include:
- A session on “Untraditional Theories and Ideas in Global and Large Scale Geology,” which will examine the basis for the concept of subduction zones.
- Updates on recent exploration and production in the Mediterranean, North Africa, Middle East, Caspian, Black Sea, Russia, North Sea, Norwegian Sea and Barents Sea.
- Updates on carbonate and clastic reservoirs, structural geology, heavy oil, unconventional resources and resource estimation.
- A look at the energy supply and demand picture.
Greece’s multi-dimensional history and culture also will provide the setting for a number of social activities, including visits to classical and historical locations in and around Athens.
More information will be available in the June EXPLORER, and online via the AAPG Web site at www.aapg.org/athens.
