16-17 AAPG GTW EuroAsian Mature Salt Basins

Krakow, Poland

Most European and Asian salt basins would be considered at the mature stage of hydrocarbon exploration and as such we want to ask what these Permo-Triassic salt giants can tell us? And not just the Zechstein basins but also the Kungurian salt basins of the Former Soviet Union. What about the rarer Jurassic salt basins like Amu Darya – can examples of early hydrocarbon charge preserving porosity to great depths be used to help us consider where next or how to get the best out of our development plans? Younger, Cenozoic salts should also not be forgotten as they play very important role in petroleum systems of such prolific areas as the Carpathian fold-and-thrust belt or the Mediterranean offshore basins. A Field trip to the Wieliczka Salt Mines will be available alongside this event.

14-16 PESGB GEOLiteracy Tour 2019

London – Birmingham – Aberdeen

Bring your friends, colleagues and family along to PESGB’s flagship public outreach event, this year headlined by Steve Etches MBE. His lecture ‘Plumbing the Depths of the Kimmeridge Clay’ explores his great journey spanning 35 years collecting fossils from the Late Jurassic Kimmeridge Clay. Steve’s talk focuses on the diversity of his collection: the stunning specimens, with many world firsts and specimens still undescribed, and their scientific importance. And, more importantly, the stories around the finds, their painstaking extraction and preparation, to reveal the secrets of these amazing fossils, how they lived, bred and died in the seas of Kimmeridge, 157 million years ago. This series of events were established in 2011 with the aim of raising the profile of geology and earth sciences in the public consciousness.
