Joseph Pape

After receiving his BSc in Joint Honours Physics/Geology at the University of Manchester, Joseph Pape completed a MSc in Geophysics from the University of Durham. He launched his 34 year long career with BP as a Geophysicist, working largely on frontier evaluation from London, Norway, Canada and Brazil. He developed particular expertise in seismic stratigraphy, publishing in AAPG memoirs and running in house training courses. He then worked in field evaluation in the North Sea for six years, assuming Technical Leadership roles, before returning to Exploration Management in Indonesia and Angola.

After 22 years of hands on experience, Joseph worked in a centralized functional role, advising the Chief Executive Exploration on prospectivity and technical assurance for BP’s global portfolio, and ultimately Amoco and Arco’s portfolio. He concluded his career with BP as Exploration Vice President Egypt, overseeing the first deep discoveries in the Nile Delta, and a successful exploration programme in the GUPCO joint venture. For the past year, Joseph has remained in Egypt, serving as an Exploration Consultant for EFG Hermes Investment Bank, and developing exploration training programmes.
