Building on the progress of 2017, Cuba Energy 2018 will provide a platform for the whole value chain, from CUPET downwards to share ideas, develop business and forge partnerships.

Across a three-day programme, the event will discuss and debate the future of oil and gas exploration and production in Cuba, providing an exclusive in-depth insight into the opportunities and the priorities for domestic and international investors and suppliers. It will also examine the regulatory and fiscal framework to provide all delegates with a detailed understanding of how to work in Cuba and to make the most of the opportunities presented.

It will feature an opening ceremony and VIP reception led by CUPET, followed by a tour of the exhibition.

Special Workshop – Cuba Offshore Data Presentation

Delegates to Cuba Energy 2018 will receive an exclusive insight into the very latest information and an analysis provided by CUPET further to the results of the extensive BGP 2D multi-client survey offshore Cuba.

Carried out by BGP Marine; the data is the result of 18 months extensive work over 27,000 km of 2D long-offset, high resolution, broadband seismic and gravity data. The survey specifically targets the Cuba Economic Zone of the Gulf of Mexico areas.

The underexplored offshore Cuba contains large areas of open acreage. The presence of an active hydrocarbon system is indicated by oil and gas shows in some of the wells.

The survey has been designed to acquire data that will be fundamental in assisting the interpretation of the geology in the offshore Cuba, and the identification of prospective structural and stratigraphic trends that can be used for regional evaluation and future detailed seismic survey designs.

The final data will be officially launched at this exclusive workshop hosted by BGP which will take place on 4th December ahead of the main conference.

Site Visit

The programme will conclude again with the highly popular site visit on 7th December providing a first-hand insight into Cuba’s operations. The day will include transport, lunch and participants will be hosted throughout by CUPET executives.
