Microbial carbonates occur globally throughout the stratigraphic column, from the Archean to the present-day and occur in a wide range of environments. They constitute principal reservoirs of the recent pre-salt discoveries offshore Brazil, producing fields in the Middle East, and are the targets of the pre-salt play offshore Angola. Further development of our understanding and knowledge of microbial carbonates has significant implications for future worldwide exploration and production of these intriguing deposits.
Key themes to be explored by the speakers over the 2 day conference include: • Regional and Basin settings, in particular new advances in the understanding of the pre-salt south Atlantic margins.
• Reservoir Studies: from Gulf of Mexico, to Kazakhstan (Karachaganak, Tengiz and Korolev fields) and Oman (South Oman Salt Basin and analogue).
• Analogues: Understanding of frontier Precambrian petroleum systems, with analogue studies in Namibia to well-known reservoirs from Oman.
• Depositional and environmental controls illustrated by a range of studies from the Great Salt Lake, Eocene Green River to the Permian Zechstein in the North Sea.
• Texture and diagenesis: unlocking the conundrum of texture, diagenesis, pore systems and preservational vs. depositional environment.
• Petrophysical Characterisation: challenges in sampling and measurements to techniques for 3D visualisation of porosity network.
Stanley Awramik: Microbialites in Time and Space. Giovanna Della Porta: Non-marine carbonates: variety and porosity of microbially mediated and abiotic fabrics. Paul Wright: To be or Not to be, Microbial: does it matter?

Future Petroleum Science & Technology Drivers 100 Years and Beyond:
Date: 23-24 September 2013 Venue: Imperial College London
This 2-day meeting will celebrate 100 years of petroleum-related science and engineering education at Imperial College. With a list of distinguished speakers, we aim to mark this landmark achievement by looking forward to the next 100 years, with emphasis on discussing key future drivers and related energy supply issues. The meeting will be wide-ranging, with presentations covering global energy trends, future geoscience and engineering technologies, unconventional hydrocarbon resources, carbon sequestration and climate change.
We have an outstanding group of confirmed speakers, including: • Lord Ron Oxburgh • Lord John Browne • Professor Scott Tinker (Director, Bureau of Economic Geology, Texas) • Dr. Bruce Levell (VP Emerging Technologies, Shell) • Malcolm Brown (Senior VP Exploration, BG Group) • Bryan Lovell (former President, Geological Society of London) • Professor Joe Cartwright (University of Oxford)
• Emeritus Professor John Woods (Imperial College & the 2007 Joint Nobel Peace Prize Winner)
• Mike Daly (VP Exploration, BP)
