Exploration & Development in Southern Caribbean Frontier Basins

24-25 March 2020
  |  
Barranquilla, Colombia
Sponsored By:

The AAPG Latin America & Caribbean Region and the Colombian Association of Petroleum Geologists and Geophysicists (ACGGP) invite you join us for GTW Colombia 2020, a specialized workshop bringing leading scientists and industry practitioners to share best practices, exchange ideas and explore opportunities for future collaboration.

The 2-day workshop brings together technical experts and industry leaders from Colombia and throughout the Americas to take a multidisciplinary look at future opportunities for exploration and development of Southern Caribbean Frontier Basins.

The first AAPG workshop held in Barranquilla, GTW Colombia 2020 offers participants the opportunity to experience Colombian coastal culture in a city positioning itself to be the Caribbean’s premier offshore destination.

On March 27, two days after GTW Colombia, Barranquilla will host the highly anticipated World Cup Qatar 2022 qualifier match between Colombia and Venezuela. If you are a fan of football or of Latin American culture, make plans to stay for the game.

While this is an exciting time to visit Barranquilla, flights and hotels will sell out fast. Be sure to book early to ensure your participation in the event.
