Call for Abstracts Open — Submit Now!

Deadline for Abstract Submission - 27 January 2022

The American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG), in conjunction with the European Association of Geologists and Engineers (EAGE), are proud to host the first ever Mediterranean and North African Conference and Exhibition (MEDiNA) “New Exploration Opportunities and Energy Resource Challenges” on 12 - 14 September 2022. Now is the time to share your knowledge, insights, and research to help guide our geosciences community to expand frontiers and unlock resources for future generations.

The Technical Program Committee invites you to submit abstracts under the following theme/subthemes that have direct application to the industry. In particular, abstracts that focus on the region of North Africa and the Mediterranean, are most desirable. The committee also encourages case studies that illustrate the successful implementation of new techniques and technologies.
