Plans are under way and exhibitors are beginning to line up for the sixth APPEX London Prospect and Property Exposition, to be held March 6-9.
Built on the success of last year's event, the 2006 exposition again will offer a superb exhibition composed of upstream opportunities, coupled with a conference program showcasing the latest in UK and global industry activities and hydrocarbon potential -- all presented in a true business atmosphere.
The conference will be held at the IBIS Hotel, Earl's Court in West Brompton, London -- the third year the conference has been held at the site.
One of the attendees will be Ronald Egusquiza, who heads the promotion and planning department for PeruPetro.
Why? Because of the success PeruPetro has experienced at previous APPEX London meetings.
"APPEX is the bridge between Latin America and Europe," Egusquiza said, "and PeruPetro has taken this advantage to let the industry know about the competitive license contract, new model of contract and new reduced scheme of royalties in Peru."
He said his company's goal at APPEX London is "to get in contact with companies looking for international opportunities."
Has that goal been achieved?
"Yes, it was the last two times we participated in APPEX" that PeruPetro signed agreements to deliver SEG-Y and LAS data, Egusquiza said.
APPEX London is operated by AAPG with endorsement from the Geological Society of London, the Energy Institute, the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers and the UK Department of Trade and Industry. IHS is the industry sponsor for the APPEX Global Perspectives Forum.
Updated forum information -- including exhibition and registration details -- will be available on the AAPG Web site at appex.aapg.org.
