3. Cambrian sedimentation is mostly characterised by the deposition of alluvial and marginal marine siliciclastics derived from the ANS hinterland and deposited in a high flux–high discharge regime.
4. The regional Burj marine transgression (ca. 509 Ma) comprising shallow marine carbonates (trilobite-rich) and tidal siliciclastics is an important seismic reflector that can be traced throughout the region.

Dear Colleague

On behalf of Target Exploration, I would like to invite you to join us at MENA 2015 Oil & Gas Conference on the 9th and 10th of September 2015, at the prestigious Imperial College, 180 Queens Gate, London SW7, UK.

MENA 2015 Oil & Gas Conference programme consists of a series of oral and poster presentations of original papers by distinguished petroleum geoscientists, engineers, new-ventures staff and other members of upstream oil and gas companies presenting their latest innovations and technologies in exploration, fields development and production of Oman, UAE, Kuwait, Jordan and Iraq as well as forecasts on Libya, Syria, Tunisia, Yemen among other oil and gas producing MENA countries

Due to overlapping producing stratigraphic intervals; the almost complete stratigraphic record and unique tectonics of Oman provided a foundation for pioneering upstream experiments and experiences of Oman. At present, the stable and politically low risk Oman can provide new-venture analysts and other upstream think-tanks in MENA oil and gas industries with analogues when exploring, developing and producing:
1. Precambrian sourced oil, condensates and gas in Phanerozoic reservoirs.
2. Sub- and Intra-Upper Cambrian Salt reservoirs.
3. Permian-Carboniferous glacial, fluvial to shallow marine reservoirs.
4. Cretaceous and Pre-Cambrian Shale Oil and Shale Gas.
5. Palaeozoic-Precambrian tight gas-condensates reservoirs.
6. Clusters of marginal discoveries around mature oil and gas fields.
7. Heavy oil reservoirs by gas- and Solar-generated steam injection.
For conference programme, speakers and registration form; see attached conference program which include a registration form. Alternatively visit our conference website: http://www.targetexploration.com/MENA15.pdf

We also would like to bring to your attention the pre-conference course “Introduction to the Petroleum Geology of Oman” delivered by Dr. Salah Al-Dhahab on the 8th September 2015.

Early registration is recommended, and we are looking forwards to your stimulating discussions of the original papers and innovative new ideas delivered during this MENA Oil & Gas Conference.

MENA OIL & GAS CONFERENCE,SEPTEMBER 9-10 2015 ,LONDON UK
www.targetexploration.com/conf.pdf


MENA Oil and Gas Conferences are annual events, regularly held by Target Exploration in the renowned academic atmosphere of the Imperial College of Science and Technology, and dedicated to disseminating upstream new developments and technical achievements with peers working in upstream petroleum industries of the Middle East and North Africa, as well European and American petroleum geoscientists, engineers of international oil companies.
As the upstream oil and gas industries of MENA countries didn’t evolve uniformly and focused on overlapping stratigraphic producing intervals; the pioneering upstream experiments and experiences of Oman can provide analogues to other Middle East and North African upstream industries when exploring, developing and producing:
1. Precambrian sourced Oil, Condensates and Gas in Phanerozoic Reservoirs.
2. Sub- and Intra-Upper Cambrian Salt Clastic and Carbonate Reservoirs.
3. Permian-Carboniferous Glacial and Fluvio-glacial Reservoirs.
4. Palaeozoic-Precambrian Tight Gas-condensates Reservoirs.
5. Clusters of Marginal Discoveries with Mature Oil and Gas Fields.
6. Heavy Oil Reservoirs by Gas- and Solar-generated Steam Injection.
7. Cretaceous and Pre-Cambrian Shale Oil and Gas.
MENA 2015 Oil & Gas Conference aims at presenting new developments in exploration, field’s development and production of MENA countries, with a number of sessions dedicated to the pioneering exploration, developed and producing oil and gas field analogues of Oman.
I invite you to participate and share your new development, research and achievements by presenting a paper or poster at the 10th Middle East and North Africa Oil & Gas Conference.

Precambrian Sourced Oil, Condensates and Gas in Phanerozoic Reservoirs.
Sub- and Intra-Infracambrian Salt Clastic & Carbonate Reservoirs.
Permian and Carboniferous Glacial and Fluvio-glacial Reservoirs.
Palaeozoic-Precambrian Tight Gas-condensates Reservoirs.
Clusters of Marginal Discoveries with Mature Oil & Gas Fields.
Heavy Oil Reservoirs by Gas- and Solar-generated Steam Injection.
Cretaceous and Pre-Cambrian Shale Oil & Gas.
