The 2nd scientific conference – GeoShale 2014 – dedicated to fine-grained sediments will be hosted by the Polish Geological Institute – National Research Institute in Warsaw, 24-26 September, 2014.
The conference brings together geoscientists from around the world, who are engaged in shale research studies. The conference will continue the work of the GeoShale 2012, which ended up with a great success. 180 scientists from 19 countries for three days discussed shale sedimentology, stratigraphy, physical and geochemical properties, and gas exploration and production issues.

UOG 2014: 18-20 November at The Dead Sea, Israel.
- Over 35 TCF of gas has been discovered offshore Israel in the last 5 years, with production starting in 2013, showcasing it’s huge energy potential. The US Geological Society in 2010 estimated that there is between 50 TCF and 227 TCF of natural gas, and between 0.48 and 3.78 billion barrels of oil in total to be discovered in the offshore Levant Basin (45% of which is in Israel).
- Further oil and gas E&P opportunities offshore and onshore means Israel could rival Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
