We take a look back over the highlights of July’s inaugural Asia Pacific Conference!! Or take a look at all the photos here 


Technical Program

“After an interesting introductory session which set the scene geologically and historically, about 25 presentations covered the Asia Pacific area, region by region. Some of these took a very broad-brush approach – for example, Peter Lunt’s talk describing a new direction for Asian stratigraphy, or Robert Hall’s discussion on sediment provenance in South East Asia – while other speakers gave a more localised talk, such as an explanation of the Central Burma Depression or the implications of the Xanadu discovery in Western Australia. A session was devoted to discussing how new and improved technologies, from seismic to full tensor gradiometry, can be used to enhance exploration in the region.”


“The special farmout sessions, which were run concurrently with the technical sessions, were well attended, with over 20 presentations, some of which described countrywide opportunities presented by the relevant licensing authority, while individual companies offered single farm-outs and the specialist M&A organisations proposed a variety of openings.” Jane Whaley GeoExPro read the full GeoExPro review here










Social Program


The conference was complimented by a week of surrounding events and social activities, including the long-established Petroleum Geology Of SE Asia Overview Run by Ian Longley & Peter Ballie. An Ice-breaker drinks reception, quiz night, YP networking lunch and pub crawl were great opportunities to catch up with friends, and network with new contacts.
