Norris Conference Center, Live Oak Room | 816 Town and Country Blvd #210 Houston, TX 77024 

5:00pm - 9:00pm

The HGS and PESGB will host a networking event on September 26, 2022 in Houston, Texas. On this occasion, the HGS/PESGB will bring this event in an In-Person format. There will be a networking reception with drinks and appetizers, followed by a dinner and sponsor presentations.

Keynote Speaker: Jon Rotzien, "The Range & Variability in Turbidites, Contourites & Mass Transport Deposits: An Homage to Deepwater Pioneers"

Recent, large discoveries in frontier settings offshore Africa (and the conjugates) have bolstered a positive trajectory for the deepwater creaming curve. The industry is in a deepwater renaissance, with the curve not showing signs of flattening. Not only have these discoveries increased the deepwater resource base, but they have also called into question the turbidite paradigm that persisted in exploration workflows since the final third of the 20th century.
