Call for Papers

The HGS/PESGB Africa Conference has built a reputation for hosting high-quality technical talks focused on the geology of the African continent and conjugate margin. In 2022, the conference will focus on how Africa transitions over the next decade.  Alongside submissions on petroleum exploration, development, and reservoir management, we also seek submissions on subsurface technologies, skills and the projects supporting Energy Transition in Africa, such as geothermal, carbon storage and rare earth element exploration.

The HGS Africa Technical Committee invites you to submit an abstract for the program.  Your research could be featured on the agenda, giving you a platform to reach a global audience.  You also have the opportunity to win one of the prestigious awards for technical excellence for the best presentations, including special awards for students and international contributors.  

Conference Overview

The 21st annual HGS-PESGB Africa Conference will be held 26-28 September 2022 and will include both in-person and virtual events. Join us for an in-person networking reception on September 26th at the Norris Center in Houston, TX. Then, virtually attend the technical program on September 27th and 28th. We'll end the conference with an in-person social on September 28th, pending sponsorship commitment.
