Track 2: Petroleum Geology

Petroleum geology is a branch of geology which deals with the study of origin, occurrence, movement, accumulation, and exploration of hydrocarbon fuels. It combines the exact set of geological disciplines that are useful to the search for hydrocarbons. Oil and gas deposits assessed by reservoir engineering and it also play a central role in field development planning, recommending appropriate and cost effective reservoir depletion schemes such as water flooding or gas injection to maximize hydrocarbon recovery.

Petroleum geology refers to the specific set of geological disciplines that are applied to the search for hydrocarbons during oil exploration. Oil and natural gas are produced from the remains of organisms that were deposited in fine-grained sedimentary rocks along with the mineral grains of those rocks. As these source rocks are buried by overlying sediments, the organic matter is converted to oil and natural gas, first through bacterial processes and later by high temperatures associated with burial to several thousands of feet. The oil and gas are then expelled from the source rocks into adjacent porous reservoir rocks. Because the oil and gas are less dense than the water that saturates the pores of the reservoir rocks, they move upward through the pore system until they encounter impermeable rocks. At this point, the oil and gas accumulate and an oil or gas field is formed.

The aim of geology meetings is to bring together researchers in all aspects of Geology and related disciplines.

Track 3: Geology and Mineral Resources

Mineral Resources can be defined as the concentration of material of economic interest in or on the earth’s crust and those are potentially valuable, and for which reasonable prospects exist for eventual economic extraction. These are the natural resources which cannot be renewed. They are present in the organisms as an organic and inorganic molecule and ions. Mineralogy focuses on describing minerals within their geologic context. It presents the important traditional content of mineralogy including crystallography, chemical bonding, controls on mineral structure, mineral stability, and crystal growth to provide a foundation that enables students to understand the nature and occurrence of minerals. Crystal chemistry is a part of mineralogy that deals with how the chemical composition of a mineral relates to its crystal structure.

Like other natural resources, mineral deposits are unevenly distributed around on the Earth. Finding and exploiting mineral resources requires the application of the principles of geology. Some minerals are used as they are found in the ground, i.e. they require no further processing or very little processing. For example gemstones, sand, gravel, and salt (halite). Most minerals must be processed before they are used.

The aim of Geology & Geoscience Summit to endorse, inspire and influence more support, understanding and collaboration among scientists working in the field of Geology.

Track 5: Structural Geology

Structural Geology is a branch of geology that deals with the form, arrangement, and internal structure of rocks is also called also geotectonic geology. Structural Geology, Tectonics and Geodynamics form a coherent and interdependent group of sub-disciplines which is the study of the physical forms and relations of rocks which result mainly from deformation by earth forces.

Researchers in structural geology have integrated field-based analyses, laboratory work on rock deformation, fluid-rock interactions, metamorphic reactions, continuum and fracture mechanics, geochemistry, geochronology, isotope geochemistry, and a range of other disciplines, across vast ranges of time and space to develop new ways to examine and understand our planet. Plate tectonics developed as a unifying theory of the solid Earth from observations of the ocean floors where deformation, seismicity, and volcanism are localized at boundaries between rigid plates.

Geological conferences will make an ideal platform for the academicians, geologists and research scientists to share views and experiences.

Track 6: Geology and Civil Engineering

The value of geology in mining has long been known but its use in civil engineering has been recognized only in comparatively recent years. Geology provides a systematic knowledge of construction material, its occurrence, composition, durability and other properties. Example of such construction materials is building stones, road metal, clay, limestone and laterite. The knowledge of the geological work of natural agencies such as water, wind, ice and earthquakes helps in planning and carrying out major civil engineering works. For example the knowledge of erosion, transportation and deposition helps greatly in solving the expensive problems of river control, coastal and harbor work and soil conservation.

Geological investigation in engineering construction is used to build Tunnels, dams and bridges. Geology helps greatly in interpreting the drilling data. In tunneling, constructing roads, canals, docks and in determining the stability of cuts and slopes, the knowledge about the nature and structure of rocks is very necessary. Before staring a major engineering project at a place, a detailed geological report which is accompanied by geological maps and sections, is prepared. Such a report helps in planning and constructing the projects. The stability of civil engineering structure is considerably increased if the geological feature like faults, joints, bedding planes, folding solution channels etc. in the rock beds are properly located and suitably treated.

Track 7: Exploration Geophysics

Exploration geophysics is an applied branch of geophysics, which deals with the physical methods like seismic, gravitational, magnetic, electrical and electromagnetic at the surface of the Earth to measure the physical properties of the subsurface, along with the differences in those properties. Geophysical methods of exploration are means to collect geophysical data that can be used to prospect directly for economic minerals.

Geophysical methods for oil and gas exploration and mineral prospecting include almost all the major geophysical methods ever invented, oil and gas exploration is dominated by seismic reflection method, in both land and marine settings. Geophysical exploration may be used with advantage to detect margins between different elements of the subsoil as these procedures are based on the fact that the gravitational, magnetic, electrical, radioactive or elastic properties of the different elements of the subsoil may be different.

Geology meetings will make an ideal platform for the academicians, geologists and research scientists to share views and experiences.

Track 8: Mining Geology

Mining is the process in which extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth takes place which forms the mineralized package of economic interest to the miner. Mineral exploration is the exploration and development are investigative activities prior to mining and it focuses on projects which search for concentrations of ore, or minerals, for mining purposes. A near accurate estimation on the volume of mineral deposits is very important because mineral exploration is a capital intensive operation.

Mineral exploration focuses on developments which search for concentrations of ore, or minerals, for mining purposes. Exploration and mining activities provide opportunities for employment, diversification of regional economies, and the development of regional services and infrastructure. Drilling is used to obtain very detailed information about rock types, mineral content, rock fabric and the relationships between rock layers close to the surface and at depth. Drilling is only used in areas that have been selected as targets from geological, geophysical and/or geochemical methods.

The main aim of geology summit is to offer opportunities to share their research through the conference podium with the professionals from all the over the world.

Market analysis of Oil and Gas in the UAE:

The UAE is endowed with vast reserves of oil, both offshore and onshore. According to the UAE Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, the UAE maximum sustainable daily capacity of oil production (maximum production rate that can be sustained daily for one year in present conditions of exploitation) is 2 million barrels a day. Its installed production capacity is over 3 million barrels per day. In 2000, proven oil reserves in the UAE were 98.8 billion barrels, the third largest oil reserves in the world after Saudi Arabia, and Iraq. The UAE’s proven oil reserves were estimated to be almost 10 per cent of the proven world oil reserves in June 2000. On the basis of current daily oil production of 2 .2 million barrels per day, it is estimated that oil reserves in the UAE will last for more than 122 years. Proven gas reserves were estimated to be 6 trillion cubic metres in 2000. The UAE was estimated to have natural gas reserves equivalent to over 4 per cent of the known world gas. The UAE holds the fourth largest reserves of natural gas in the world. Gas reserves are estimated to last for more than 60 years. The UAE possesses, therefore, huge reserves of oil and gas, capable of sustaining long-term economic growth.

The major player in Dubai oil is the Dubai Petroleum Company (DPC) which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Conoco of the US. In Dubai Gas Demand rising day by day, the Dubai Aluminium Company is having its US $736 million Condor expansion project, making Dubai the second largest smelter in the world and the largest in the Middle East. The UAE has the fourth highest level of oil and gas reserves globally per capita, at about 15,000 barrels of oil equivalent. About 94% of the UAE’s crude oil reserves are located in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and Abu Dhabi marine operating company which is an affiliate of ADNOC has begun initial production from the offshore Umm Lulu oilfield in October 2014. By 2018, the oil field would add more than 100, 000 b/d of crude to the oil production capacity as per the EIU.

Funding Opportunities:

The UAE is currently the sixth-largest petroleum producer in the world. In 2013, hydrocarbon export revenues were $123 billion, up from approximately $75 billion in 2010, according to the International Monetary Fund. In addition to the growing hydrocarbon economy, the UAE is becoming one of the world's most important financial centres and a major trading Center in the Middle East. The UAE is also one of the world's leaders in the use of natural gas in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) techniques. The UAE is also investing in renewable energy technologies and has committed to produce at least 7% of total power generation from renewable sources by 2020.26 New solar capacity is planned to come online in the next few years, but it will amount to only a small share of total power generation.

According to MICAD (Ministry of International Cooperation and Development) total aid from the UAE granted to US$5.89 billion (Dh21.63 billion) in 2013. Much of this funding comes under the definition of Official Development Assistance (ODA) as required by the Development Assistance Committee of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD DAC). According to the resource and environmental protection report the Governor’s budget for 2015-16 proposes a total of $9.3 billion in expenses from the General Fund, various special funds, bond funds, and federal funds for resources and environmental protection programs.

About Geology

Geology & Geoscience Summit will provide a unique scientific and technical platform to share the research experiences among the best-available experts and professionals from all over the world engaged in different fields of Geology. We also welcome students and postdoctoral researchers to show their investigations about Geology.

At this conference, many experts from around the world will show us the main progress in trends of Environmental Geology, Petroleum Geology, Geology and Mineral Resources, Engineering Geology, Structural Geology, Geology and Civil Engineering, Exploration Geophysics, Mining Geology, Economic Geology, Marine Geology, Volcanology, Physical Geology, Remote Sensing and GIS, Geological Consulting. Geoscientists have made a significant contribution in understanding the ore minerals and spatial distribution and genesis of resources of industrial, groundwater and fossil fuels. Meanwhile, global biogeochemical cycles of carbon, nitrogen, silicon and other elements play a more important role in geology and geoscience. Based on this knowledge, some geophysical, biogeochemical and geological exploration methods have been explored to discover new earth resources, and geological and biogeochemical cycles. Therefore, a grand gathering of professors, young researchers, and students of different institutes and universities containing geological studies will be at Geology & Geoscience Summit-2017, where will be the leading forum for all recent advancements in geology and geosciences.

We hope that this conference will be productive and satisfying. Personally, I hope that you have a very enjoyable and entertaining stay in Dubai.
