African E&P Conference 2019



 Africa is Back; Smarter, Better, Stronger.

The 18th PESGB / HGS Conference on African E&P

This annual event, alternating between London and Houston, has established itself as the primary technical E&P conference and exhibition 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.




Call For Papers.

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 opening new plays, lessons learned, maximizing recovery and extending field life in established plays and basins, technical aspects of strategic partnerships & academic collaboration. Contributions to poster sessions and the interactive workstation workshop will be given equal weight as oral contributions.

Abstracts (up to 2 pages and can include colour figures) should be sent as soon as possible and no later than 15 March 2019 here . . . 

Extended abstracts are normally written once your paper is accepted and are issued to delegates digitally. Awards will be given for Best Extended Abstract, Best Oral Presentation, Best Poster and Best Interactive Presentation
