Super Basins 10: Petroleum Systems of the Middle East

...will there be a Middle East 2.0 for petroleum? 0

Friday, October 7, 2022, Webinar, Online

Can anything new be said about the magnificent – but surely very well known – source rocks of the Middle East after more than a 100 years of study?

Probably!

We are learning about Petroleum Systems all the time as new basins offer up their petroleum; perhaps the shale oil and gas basins of the onshore United States offer the best example of figuring out and applying new ideas!

So a simple and obvious idea would be that a better understanding of the Middle East’s Petroleum Systems would reveal a tranche of conventional oil and gas opportunities that have not yet been understood, drilled or produced. Infrastructure-led E&P……

But think of the US analogue where basins that had produced major amounts of conventional petroleum and were clearly in decline became the host of equally significant unconventional oil and/or gas production via the adroit application of technologies such as horizontal drilling and fracking. Leading the USA to be once again the leading oil & gas producer in the world….

We’ll think about that in this webinar!
