The Greek Energy Forum (GEF) is very pleased to announce the introduction of a three-part event series, focused on Exploration and Production 101 for non-technical personnel of the Forum and beyond. This event series is focused on providing all our members who have no background on the area of Exploration & Production, with a backbone for understanding and approaching the current hydrocarbon developments in Greece. It will also offer an excellent platform, upon which our members with experience in this area, can share their thoughts and experiences. The event will take place on the 17th October 2014 and it will feature two speakers with distinguished careers in the upstream area, who will talk about the topic of ’Exploration: Genesis’.
