The hottest event of the season is about to begin.

APPEX, AAPG's annual Prospect and Property Expo, will be held Sept. 14-16 in Houston at the George R. Brown Convention Center.

As with the previous three Houston APPEX events, geoscientists will once again have the chance to buy, sell and trade their work in a professional marketplace.

The three-day event is expected to attract up to 2,000 participants this year.

A new workshop from IHS Energy specifically for independents titled "Tools and Techniques for Assessing New-Country Entry," will be held Thursday, Sept. 16, from 7:30-9 a.m.

Another APPEX offering is a "Perspectives on the Upstream Business of Oil and Gas" forum, also sponsored by IHS Energy around the theme "The Exploration Dilemma: What is Exploration's Role in Shaping the Energy Future?"

The forum, set from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 14, will address issues such as financial markets, technology, regulations, politics and policies.

The forum is the lead-up, of course, to the expo itself, which begins with an Icebreaker at 4:30 p.m. on Sept. 14 and offers the opportunity to find and/or sell ideas, prospects and property.

Other APPEX highlights include:

  • A "perspectives lunch" on Tuesday, Sept. 14, featuring a talk by John Seitz, geologist and president of Houston-based Endeavour International, "Who Will Discover the New Oil and Gas Fields?".
  • A "mini-breaker" at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 15.
  • A SIPES/HGS/AAPG short course, "Packaging and Selling Your Prospect: Geoscience, Land and Financial Return -- A How-To Guide for Presenting Prospects to Management and Investors," to be held from 1-5 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 16.
  • Continental breakfast available on both Sept. 15-16.

Best of all, online registration and further updated information -- about both attending and securing space on the exhibit floor -- can be found at appex.aapg.org.
