Held under the auspices of the national Mediterranean Sea Research Center of Israel and the Israel Academy of Science and Humanities, this Batsheva seminar will be the first professional meeting in Israel that focuses on the offshore upstream development.
Celebrating the historic onset of gas supply by Tamar well, the Seminar aims to:
- Create and establish the annual meeting point for the professionals driving offshore upstream development in the Levant Basin and the relevant academic community
- Define mutual objectives and foster a synergetic local professional community
- Outline the future gas and oil development potential in the Israeli offshore
The Seminar’s program includes two days of plenary and poster sessions, discussion forums; and a one day field trip to southern Israel focusing on unique erosive craters within Syrian Arc anticlines and remnants of the Early Miocene trans-Jordanian fluvial system. The presentations will provide an up to date view on the Levantine basin's evolution and hydrocarbon potential based on new drilling results; review the challenges and technical solutions involved in the development of this basin; and present contributions of the Israeli academic community. The perspective of global analogues will be brought by invited keynote speakers. The Seminar will also offer service companies an opportunity to showcase their current and planned activities and capabilities in the region.
