Agenda GIPEX 2019

START OF DAY 1

Wednesday, 20 November 2019

The similar geochemical characteristics of commercial discoveries found on both sides of the Equatorial Atlantic Margin suggest that understanding the geologic model and reconstructing the deposit history of the plays may lead to finding more oil in the conjugate margin basins. Day 1 delves into the technology, the governance and the sustainable drill.
