43nd Annual Eastern Section AAPG Meeting

September 27-30, 2014 - London, Ontario

The Ontario Petroleum Institute and the Eastern Section of AAPG, present the 43nd Annual Meeting of the Eastern Section of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, returning to London, Ontario which last hosted the Eastern Section Meeting in 1990 and 2000.

Over the fourteen years since the last meeting in London, oil and gas exploration and production operations in the four major basins of the Eastern Section have witnessed transformative changes and challenges. Even after 156 years of commercial petroleum development, treasure abounds in the rich source rocks and capacious reservoirs that lie beneath the original North American oil patch.

Join us in "The Forest City" to trace the roots of this bountiful endowment, and learn how going Back to the Source has nurtured the second great cycle of economic growth and prosperity.

Bringing together the geoscientists, engineers and other technical professionals who are actively revealing the secrets of the Appalachian, Michigan, Illinois and Black Warrior Basins, the meeting will have technical sessions, short courses, field trips and exhibitors that will stimulate new E&P concepts. At the same time, renew old friendships and make new acquaintances during networking opportunities throughout the meeting.

Contact General Co-Chairs Burns Cheadle or Frank Kuri to volunteer to help with the meeting. If you want more information about exhibits or sponsorship, contact Bob Trevail. Ian Colquhoun will be happy to answer any questions about the Technical Program.
