On behalf of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, we cordially invite you to attend 3P Arctic: The Polar Petroleum Potential Conference & Exhibition, to be held in Halifax, Nova Scotia (Canada) 30th August – 2nd September 2011. This is the second 3P Conference & Exhibition specifically focused on the petroleum geology and exploration of the Circum-Arctic basins, located within Russian, Norwegian, Greenlandic, Canadian and US Alaskan onshore and offshore Arctic territories. The first 3P event in Moscow in 2009, made a fabulous start to the advancement of Arctic exploration understanding. The meeting attracted great interest from industry and academia, who by sharing modern data and up-to-date geoscientific and exploration knowledge, prepared industry for taking on the economic and technological challenges in this demanding icy region.
Attendees were drawn from many Arctic and adjacent countries, and the universal language was science. The open sharing of knowledge and understanding, networking, and development of friendships was the foundation of a highly successful event. The upcoming 3P in Halifax will build on this success.
3P Arctic 2011 will be held at the Halifax World Trade and Convention Centre (WTCC), an exhibition and conference facility in downtown Halifax. Our field trips, oral sessions, and poster presentations will all be focused on Arctic geoscience and engineering technologies. In addition to the technical program featuring more than 150 oral and poster presentations, there will be an exhibition dedicated to companies working the Arctic. Join leading Arctic research scientists and explorationists for the unique 3P Arctic event in Halifax.
