Talk Description
As the name suggests East Africa Oil Group or EAOG is a group created to explore for oil plays along the flanks of the Western Indian Ocean from Cape Town northwards to Somalia and oceanwards from Madagascar to the Comoros, Seychelles and the Cambay region of India.

The group comprises five explorers who have been continuously active in this region, either individually and collectively, with various companies over the last couple of decades. During that time some 270 oil occurrences have been examined, mostly by directly obtaining and analysing oil samples. The results are now integrated with their local and plate settings. The result is that EAOF understand the origin and distribution of the East Africa margin hydrocarbons and are able to determine where commercial oil will most likely be found.

The Finding Petroleum presentation will both explain our approach and provide insight into the our understanding of this emerging hydrocarbon province.

Improving MRO (maintenance, repair, overhaul) inventory management
by Scott Hawkins from ASCI

"Data analytics. After the strong intro (as ever) talk content grew more interesting as the morning progressed. In addition, often pleasing to have new (young) talent on stage, especially so confident."
