1st AAPG/EAGE PNG Petroleum Geoscience Conference & Exhibition

PNG’s Oil and Gas Industry Maturing Through Exploration, Development and ProductionThe 1st AAPG/EAGE Papua New Guinea Petroleum Geoscience Conference & Exhibition is designed primarily for those who explore for petroleum accumulations, appraise them and seek to develop them as producing oil and gas fields. Petroleum Geoscientists of all kinds from: wellsite geologists to exploration program managers; geophysicists to geochemists; and stratigraphers to sedimentologists, and all those others who contribute to the elucidation of the hydrocarbon endowment of a place like Papua New Guinea are most welcome.Whilst petroleum engineering is not a theme of this conference, we will endeavour to include select papers on oil and gas fields and their reservoirs and production where it pertains to the subsurface science of the accumulation of petroleum. Whilst stating the obvious interest of petroleum geoscientists, specialists in many aspects of geology and other disciplines may also wish to attend. The amazing structural geology of Papua New Guinea arising from its location at a major plate margin should attract structural geologists from around the world amongst many other specialists. Aside from the science, the Conference will necessarily update all those in the industry who are concede with development and commercialisation as we conjecture new development along side the exploration potential of new frontiers to be explored like the deep water areas of the Gulf of Papua into the Coral Sea.The conference comes two decades since the last of the inaugural series of Petroleum Conventions of the 1990s were run in Port Moresby by the PNG Chamber of Mines and Petroleum which is a local supporter of this event. There is thus two decades of exciting petroleum geoscience and fertile knowledge to shared since those last scientific meetings took place during which time many more fields have been discovered and the large gas discoveries developed and put into production.For information, contact Adrienne Pereira AAPG Asia Pacific Programs Manager apereira@aapg.org
