AAPG ERC Bucharest 2016
About the Conference

This conference will concentrate on the petroleum systems of European basins and fold belts not only from a hydrocarbon exploration, but also from a geoscience perspective. The main geographic focus will be on the Alpine fold belts of Central and Eastern Europe with the associated foredeep/foreland basins and also the large back-arc basins as well. Special focus will be placed on the Black Sea given the fact that the Romanian offshore is still the only significant oil producer in the basin to date and it also saw the significant play opener of biogenic gas discoveries in the deepwater during the last few years.

Who should attend?

This is a conference for upstream oil and gas industry professionals working in the broader area of Central and Eastern Europe. Participation by academic researchers and students with an interest in petroleum exploration and regional geology is also most welcome.
