Building upon our second another successful technical conference in Yangon in November 2015, this next event is also organized jointly with AAPG, EAGE and Myanmar Geosciences Society (MGS), which will take place in Yangon 22-24 February 2017. The three societies are very pleased again to work together and bring a quality geoscience event to this rather underexplored country that many call the “hottest hotspot” for hydrocarbon exploration in Asia and maybe even the world. This conference is endorsed by Myanma Oil and Gas Enterprise (MOGE) and Ministry of Electricity and Energy (MOEE).
As part of the 2013 offshore bidding round, 20 blocks were awarded to 13 international oil and gas companies and PSC signing for all blocks was completed by mid-2015. As reported in the Myanmar Times, MOGE’s U Than Tun said at the 3rd Southeast Asia Offshore Summit in September 2015 “The coming 2016-17 year will be the busiest period of Myanmar’s offshore petroleum industry, as oil companies in existing projects and newly-awarded blocks are going to begin exploration activities”. In the 1Q16 two deep water discoveries were reported in blocks A-6 & AD-7 in the Rakhine Basin. In the period 2H15-1H16 more than 10 operators have been shooting large 3D & 2D seismic surveys across all the offshore basins.
With all this industry activity plus a high level of academic research, it is expected that there will be an exciting evolution of knowledge of Myanmar’s petroleum systems, plays & field developments.
This conference provides the opportunity to receive an up-to-date knowledge of oil and gas exploration and production activities in Myanmar and academic research impacting our understanding of the geological evolution of both onshore and offshore areas of Myanmar. This conference will provide the opportunity to network and share experiences.
