The day has arrived for an event that brings
buyers and sellers together under one roof -- and gives everyone
a chance to make the deal of a lifetime.
The third annual AAPG Prospect and Property Expo,
this year titled "Live Long and Prospect," will be held Sept. 9-11
at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston. Co-conveners
are SIPES, the Houston Geological Society and PLS.
This year’s Houston APPEX, like the previous two
events, will offer a convenient, extensive prospect and property
showroom that is designed by geologists, for geologists.
Those deals, ideas, plays and properties will be
on display at the time of year when most buyers are developing their
budgets for the coming season.
APPEX also offers a chance for geologists to attend
a one-day forum that’s designed to provide the information and knowledge
needed to succeed in today’s tough business environment.
Organizers are hoping to attract 3,000 attendees
and 400 booths.
APPEX begins on Tuesday, Sept. 9, with the special
one-day forum on "Perspectives on the Upstream Business of Oil and
Gas." The forum,
sponsored by IHS Energy, will address key trends, business issues,
strategic alliances and future directions in two critical E&P
