The 17th Annual Africa Conference convened by the Houston Geological Society (HGS) and the Petroleum Exploration Society of Great Britain (PESGB) will be held September 10-13, 2018 at the Norris Conference Centre in Houston, TX. The program’s Theme of Big Continent, Big Ideas and Big Opportunities will have technical presentations on the petroleum opportunities highlighted in the recent discoveries in West Africa along the transform margin, salt basins and emerging areas of Senegal and Mauritanian margins. Continued exploration in East Africa both offshore from Mozambique to Somalia as well as new play ideas in onshore rift basins that continues to be delineated. New play concepts/ideas in mature offshore areas of Libya and Egypt as well as the latest trend in the carbonate reefs similar to the Zohr discovery.

The meeting will feature sessions with themes on post appraisal of discoveries in the past decade titled ‘Exploration Concepts to Production Realities’ highlighting and the initial estimates of major discoveries as compared to the ultimate field production, exploration programs on both east and west African margins and panel discussion on Exploration in Africa – Past, Present and Future; Keys to Exploration Success and Disaster Avoidance with senior management from IHS, Tullow, Anadarko, Woodside and Kosmos.

The program will highlight the Seismic Showcase where companies with seismic data across all of Africa will have their data on display.

The Africa E&P Conference of 2017 was a huge success. With over 50 exhibitions exploring the latest developments in the African continent and the conference itself being host to the largest technical offering in the show’s history, Africa 2017 was an essential event for anyone with interests in the region. We here at PESGB are sure that Africa 2018, taking place in Houston, Texas, will enjoy the same success and the same exceptional technical quality of its sister show in London. It is a date not to be missed!
