Continental Europe Editorial Achievements – 2016
During 2016, the Continental Europe (CE) team – nine professionals with extensive regional expertise and 10 languages spoken (another eight understood) has sourced and validated hard to acquire and often conflicting E&P-related data from the region’s petroleum provinces, some of them with a history of production dating back to the mid-19th century (e.g. Carpathian mountain belt). The team continued to focus on conventional activities onshore and offshore, and followed all activities regarding unconventional resources.
As personal contacts within the industry are of utmost importance, colleagues in the team are regularly engaging in “scouting trips” to meet operators and licensing authorities and we also attend relevant conferences. We maintain a network of local correspondents and comprehensively communicate with companies to secure top quality and up to date information/data for the region.
In May and October 2016, two consecutive meetings of the Central Eastern Europe & Caspian (CEEC) Scout Group, a successful regional event held for 23 years were organized in Athens (Greece) and Balatonfüred (Hungary). With 176 and 164 attendees representing over 40 member companies and a few dozen companies/institutions present as guests, the meetings were both great successes, especially at the time of the downturn in the oil industry.
