2nd SEG Foothill Exploration Workshop

12–14 April 2019 | Chengdu, China


12–14 April 2019
Chengdu, China

As oil and gas exploration activities extend to the foothill areas with complicated surface topography and complex geologic structure, such as western China and other areas around the world, significant progress has been made in the applications of modern technology. However, exploration in foothill areas still faces challenging issues for geophysical technology. In order to facilitate a platform for technology exchange to improve operations, the 2nd SEG Foothill Exploration Workshop, organized by SEG and CNPC, will be held 12–14 April 2019. Geoscientists from China and around the world are cordially invited to attend the workshop. We look forward to your participation and contribution.
