On behalf of the Organizing Committee of International Scientific and Technical Conference "Geology and hydrocarbon potential of the Balkan-Black Sea region" I invite most heartily scientists, researchers and professionals, managers and businessmen to participate in the forum.
Globally, the largest investments in the mineral-raw materials sector is putting for oil and gas exploration and production. Large-scale projects implemented recently in the Balkan-Black Sea region by foreign and domestic companies resulted in new oil and gas discoveries. A significant amount of new data has been obtained, that requires analysis, understanding and interpretation. The exploration and production of natural gas from unconventional sources, such as shale formations, coal fields and others, attain actuality more and more in the global and national scale. The conference participants will have the opportunity to learn new results and ideas for: oil and gas prospects of the region; unconventional hydrocarbon sources; modern methods and technologies for prospecting, exploration, production and storage of oil and gas; ecology and sustainable development. Besides that, the participants will have the opportunity to discuss, to exchange scientific and practical experience and to establish personal and business contacts.
I am confident that you will enjoy the beauties and charms of the Varna coastal area – the pearl of the Bulgarian Black Sea zone.
