Africa Conference 2017

August 31 — September 1



This conference series, which has been alternating annually between London and Houston since 2002, has evolved into the premier event for technical discussions and networking on exploration and geosciences in Africa. With attendances in recent years reaching over 600; including operators, consultants, governments and academia, there is a large poster programme in addition to the oral programme of over 25 high quality talks covering E&P in all regions of Africa. This is complemented by a lively exhibition floor which boasts over 60 exhibitors.

We are already starting to plan and compile the programme for the 16th annual Africa Show in London in September 2017. Papers will be grouped into four thematic sessions addressing new advances in fields across the full spectrum from regional research to the establishment and optimisation of reserves. Contributions are particularly sought in topics such as continental-oceanic transitions, less conventional and new petroleum systems, controls on deep water reservoirs and new discoveries. Contributions to poster sessions and a planned seismic workshop will be given equal weight as oral contributions. Extended abstracts are normally written once your paper is accepted and are issued on a conference CD, and there will also be awards given for Best Oral Presenter and Best Poster.

Abstracts (up to 2 pages and can includediagrams) should be sent as soon as possible and no later than 15 March 2017 to Helen Doran at or to a designated Session Chair to be announced soon.
