New & Emerging Plays PG Poster_2.qxd
International Conference: Call for Abstracts
New and Emerging Plays in the Eastern Mediterranean 23 - 25 February 2011 The Geological Society, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London
Registration now open Convenors: Andrei Belopolsky (BP)
Recent exploration success in the Eastern Mediterranean offshore has highlighted the enormous petroleum potential of this region. Significant discoveries offshore Egypt, Libya and Israel have opened new basins and new plays for petroleum exploration, particularly in deep water. New seismic data, the results of the recent and upcoming exploration wells and licence activity offshore Lebanon, Cyprus, Libya, Tunisia and Italy will all redefine the hydrocarbon potential of this emerging region in the near future.
This conference will discuss new ideas on the tectonic evolution of the region, basin formation, new plays, petroleum systems, and the linkage between the onshore and the offshore. It will provide a common platform for sharing information and results between industry and academia.
Basins covered: Levant, offshore Nile, Herodotus, offshore Cyrenaica, offshore Sirt, Pelagian, Malta, Sicily Channel, Adriatic, and others.
