AAPG Eastern Mediterranean Mega-Basin – Workshop Review

Published
American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG)

The AAPG Easten Mediterranean Mega-Basin: New Data, New Ideas and New Opportunities GTW took place on 6 – 7 September 2019 at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Alexandria, Egypt. We received 77 attendees from 36 different companies and 13 different countries.

This two-day workshop consisted of technical presentations, poster presentations, and an optional short course.

The event focused on highlighting the latest geological and geophysical thinking about the Eastern Mediterranean and its petroleum systems.

The first day opened with an inaugural keynote speech delivered by Bill Bosworth, Apache Egypt Companies, titled “The Role of AAPG GTW’s in Exploration”.

The workshop included the following technical sessions:

  • Session 1: Tectonic Controls on Stratigraphy and Hydrocarbon Systems
  • Session 2: Advances in Seismic Datasets – Acquisition, Imaging, and Interpretation
  • Session 3: Exploration Models – Successes and New Concepts
  • Session 4: Open Floor Discussion

On the second day the workshop featured a luncheon keynote address delivered by Dr. Samir Raslan, EGAS, titled Mediterranean Gas Potential is the Future for Egypt.

The day prior to the event, attendees had the opportunity to enhance their career and professional development by attending the short course on “Advanced Basin Modelling and De-Risking Exploration in Frontier Hydrocarbon Provinces: The East-Med Dedicated Workflow”. The course was lead by Fadi Nader and Nicolas Maurand, IFP Energies nouvelles and Nicolas Mouchot, Beicip-Franlab.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our most sincere gratitude to our sponsors, TPAO as the Platinum Sponsor, PGS as the Welcome reception and Dinner Sponsor, ExxonMobil as the Gold Sponsor and BP as the Silver Sponsor. Additionally, we would like to thank EPEX for their collaboration. Thank you all for support without which the workshop would not have been possible.

AAPG Eastern Mediterranean Mega-Basin GTW - Alexandria, Egypt
This was another excellent GTW format meeting, the third in Egypt, the second in recent years. The presentations were quite current and stimulated excellent feedback and discussion among the participating companies and organizations. The GTW format works very well and is leading the advancement of petroleum geoscience especially here in the MENA region.
