LONDON, October 5, 2011 -

An unconventional gas revolution is steadily working across Europe and new developments are coming to light in the Middle East. Advancements in technology, revised economic analyses, and reassessments of resource availability and the future energy mix are driving an increased focus on optimising unconventional resource development.

Gastech Specialist Events, in association with the organisers of Gastech and the European Autumn Gas Conference, is delighted to announce that it will host the EMEA Unconventional Gas Exploration and Production Forum, dedicated to the technical issues and commercial opportunities presented by shale, CBM, and tight gas throughout the EMEA region - in areas that are already being developed, as well as where new discoveries have recently come to light. This strategic Forum, a crucial opportunity to discuss and collaborate on the progression of current and future projects, will take place in Istanbul, Turkey, on 6 - 8 February, 2012.

The programme will look at technologies integral to unlocking and optimising plays, present unique case studies illustrating field-proven experience of successful unconventional gas developments relevant to the EMEA region, and offer invaluable strategic and technical insights from leading practitioners who are driving the technological advancements and strategies that are shaping the industry.

The Forum will offer access to information that will be vital to your assessment of E&P activities related to unconventional gas, and explore whether the success enjoyed by integrated energy companies and smaller independents to date can be replicated in Europe, the Middle East, and beyond.
