The Tamar, Leviathan and Zohr discoveries have revitalised interest in North Africa and the Mediterranean. This course is an abbreviated version of the original 3 day PESGB North Africa course and is designed to provide participants with a regional overview to back up their own block and prospect-specific interpretations. Discussions are focussed round a series of paleotectonic reconstructions, paleogeographic maps, play cross-sections and chronostratigraphic charts over the region (provided in a manual), with particular attention given to the newer petroleum systems such as biogenic gas plays. Countries covered include Algeria, Tunisia, Malta, Sicily, Libya, Egypt, Cyprus, Israel and Lebanon. Two regional exercises focus on crystallising the learnings of the course for fairway and prospect evaluations.
This course is suitable for all geoscientists from MSc level upwards. Participants are limited to 25 on a first come first served basis.
This is a pre-African E&P Conference event that will take place if sufficient bookings are made.
Registration fee includes lunch, refreshments, USB and course manual
