Recent years have brought enormous changes to Brazil. In addition to the acceleration of massive pre-salt discoveries in the South Atlantic, the digital transformation, an open market and a new gas regulatory regime have leveled the playing field and brought new players to offshore and onshore fields.

AAPG’s Latin America & Caribbean Region and the Brazilian Association of Petroleum Geologists (ABGP) invite you to explore Brazil’s new scenario at the Brazil 2021 Virtual Technical Symposium, a specialized event bringing leading scientists and industry practitioners together to share best practices, exchange ideas and explore opportunities for future collaboration.

Join us on a journey from north to south, from the deep water and shallow water opportunities in the post-salt and pre-salt, to mature field opportunities onshore, to technological advances transforming all aspects of E&P.

Enjoy multidisciplinary presentations and interactive discussions with technical experts and industry leaders from Brazil and throughout the Americas. Share your perspective, and be a part of this exciting event exploring this historic time for Brazil and for the region.


The Brazil 2021 Virtual Technical Symposium features a series of technical presentations, keynote talks and Q&A Session around the following themes:

  • New Opportunities in Equatorial Margin and Post-Salt Basins
  • Recent Advances and Challenges in Pre-Salt Basins
  • Optimizing Development in Onshore Basins and Mature Fields
  • Technological Advances and Applications to Enhance E&P Activities
The technical program committee is accepting proposals for all sessions.

The committee has particular interest in presentations highlighting state-of-the-art concepts, methodologies, case histories and future directions relating to the symposium theme and geographic region featured. They also seek case studies illustrating the successful implementation of new scientific techniques and technologies.
