This annual conference, alternating between London and Houston has established itself as the primary technical E & P conference on Africa, with attendances in recent years reaching over 600, including operators, consultants, governments and academia. There will be a large poster programme in addition to the oral programme of about 25 high quality talks covering E & P in all regions of Africa.

The 2015 Conference promises to deliver another exceptional programme with over 25 talks on the following topics:

NEW Interactive Session: Seismic Workshop
This year, PESGB/HGS in association with Petroleum Geo-Services will be hosting a new Seismic Session. The session will give much greater insight into petroleum systems and geological processes that govern the African margins by way of combining a presentation of the geology and a separate seismic data visualization off of which the interpretations were made. Geologically and geographically, the topics vary greatly from the Transform Margin petroleum systems in the Ivory Coast, the Angolan deepwater Kwanza basin and the Namibian margin, to the structure and stratigraphy offshore Somalia to regional seismic interpretation and the implication for deepwater play systems in East Africa. This will give the audience, from recent graduate to Exploration Manager key understanding into fresh areas of exploration or may re-imagine more mature areas with new seismic acquisition or innovative interpretation techniques.
Once again the PESGB will be recognising the best technical contributions with its prestigious awards; made by a respected panel of industry judges. The presentation ceremony will take place at the conference close. Awards will be made for
- Best Student Poster
- Best Poster
- Best Oral Paper
- Best Seismic Presentation
The international pavilion is a central point to the exhibition floorplan and provides you with a great opportunity to meet National Oil Companies, Ministries, Governments and other promotional agencies both from the African region and around the world.
New Purbeck lacustrine limestones, UK; analogues for West African carbonates?
We are pleased to announce that resulting from the current interest in carbonate reservoirs within the non-marine Pre-Salt deposits of West Africa the committee has been exploring new ways to incorporate core into the Africa Conference. An alternative approach, however, developed from the fact the Weald Basin of southern England represents a small analogue of a West African Pre-Salt basin. As such the Purbeck Limestone of late Jurassic to early Cretaceous age provides an excellent analogue for the Pre-Salt carbonates. Dan Bosence of Royal Holloway is currently sorting through the Purbeck carbonate cores and outcrop samples stored with the BGS [British Geological Survey] and some material from which will be demonstrated at the 2015 Africa Conference, with the aim of holding discussions with delegates. This can be found between booths A & G on the International Pavilion, central in the Exhibition Floor, or for more information view the abstract here. From this we hope to arrange a field trip to demonstrate the Purbeck outcrops during the 2017 Africa Conference; you can register your interest in attending this by emailing email@example.com
