Event status:

The Black Sea retains an abiding fascination for petroleum geologists. Large structures, seepage, widespread sources rocks, and producing fields around its margins invite serious consideration of its exploration potential notwithstanding the challenges of drilling in deep water. There has been renewed exploration activity in recent years and some notable exploration success as well as disappointments.


This conference will review recent and upcoming exploration activity alongside key geological issues for understanding subsurface risk in the basin including but not limited to:

  • Geodynamic Evolution
  • Pre-rift plays including carbonate build-ups
  • Syn-rift play potential
  • Source rock distribution and maturity
  • Sediment provenance studies and impact on reservoir quality
  • Biogenic gas plays
  • The importance of outcrop studies from the margins of the basin
  • The importance of regional seismic data

 Confirmed Keynote Speakers:

  • Prof. Anatoly Nikishin, Moscow State University
  • Dr Stephen Vincent, CASP
  • Dr Gabriel Ionescu, Petrom
  • Dr Özgür Sipahioğlu, TPAO
