AAPG European Regional Conference & Exhibition 2015, Lisbon

For the first time, Lisbon is hosting an AAPG Conference & Exhibition and we are truly happy about this opportunity to share it with you!

What to Expect?

Portugal has a strategic location in Western Europe, a place where the Mediterranean ends and the Atlantic begins. Thatís our history and also our Geology. Our sedimentary basins show the record of the Western Tethys opening and closure, as well as the Central & North Atlantic birth and development. Lisbon is therefore the perfect place to feel and approach this unique situation.

Exhibition

The Peri-Tethyan area hosts a number of large and smaller hydrocarbon provinces in platforms, rifts, foreland basins and the frontal parts of thrust belts. These hydrocarbon provinces are related to a wide range of source rocks occurring in Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic series.
Western Tethys produced well developed Mesozoic rift-related basins, most of which were destroyed during the Alpine orogenic cycle and were overthrusted by or incorporated into orogenic wedges. At the same time, to the West, a new rifting was giving birth to the Central Atlantic and later on to the North Atlantic, competing with the Western Tethys evolution. This trans-European geodynamically complex region hosts a number of highly diversified petroleum systems, with excellent exploration perspectives.
From the Black Sea to the Atlantic, a large number of companies are dealing with exploration within this geodynamic framework and different kinds of hydrocarbon discoveries are now a well-known reality. New areas, new plays and new opportunities are arising, as this this region is becomes increasingly important for Europeís energy demand.
This Conference aims to bring together people from Industry and Academia, from East-European to West-European countries, to analyze, discuss and launch perspectives for increased exploration in this attractive region.

3P Arctic 2015

3P will be returning to Stavanger in 2015. Since the launch of 3P Arctic in 2009, this bi-annual conference and exhibition has focused on the geological history and exploration potential of the Circum-Arctic Basins. Ensuring that the event is led by the important foundations of science and exploration in the region, and not by political considerations; the Polar Petroleum Potential Conference and Exhibition has built an enviable reputation as the leading geoscience event for this demanding and icy region. The previous three editions of this event were held in Moscow, Halifax and Stavanger. In 2015 we plan to repeat the show in Stavanger. The previous editions focused on high quality scientific presentations, exploring the most up to date developments in the region. In addition they facilitated fantastic networking opportunities for companies and individuals to build important relationships and to develop their knowledge of this vast area. This will continue to be the aim for the upcoming event in Stavanger.
