Call for Papers

Passive seismic is an exciting, developing technology in the petroleum industry. The workshop will address advances in acquisition, processing, and interpretation for field development and exploration that have occurred since the first EAGE Workshop on Passive Seismic in 2006. Topics will include, but are not limited to:

  • Hydraulic fracturing
  • Reservoir monitoring
  • Geomechanical interpretation
  • Low frequency spectroscopy
  • CO2 sequestration
  • Enhanced geothermal systems

Emphasis will be on case studies presented by oil and gas companies. Presentation of work in progress is encouraged. The Workshop format will be extended oral presentations consisting of a 20 minute oral presentation followed by 10 or 15 minutes for discussion. About half of the workshop program time will be allotted for discussion. There will be no poster sessions.

Join us in Cyprus!

Cyprus is the largest island in the eastern Mediterranean, and is situated south of Turkey. The two main mountain ranges are the Pentadactylos in the north and the Troodos in central and south-western part of the island, with the fertile plain of Messaoria in between.

Cyprus has long been a crossing point between Europe, Asia and Africa and still has many traces of successive civilisations – Roman theatres and villas, Byzantine churches and monasteries, Crusader castles and pre-historic habitats.

The island’s main economic activities are tourism, clothing and craft exports and merchant shipping. Traditional crafts include embroidery, pottery and copper-work.

The local dishes are the traditional meze which is served as a whole meal, the halloumi cheese and the zivania schnapps.

Since Turkey occupied the north of the island in 1974, the Turkish Cypriot and Greek Cypriot communities have been separated by the so-called Green Line.

Cyprus is well known as the island of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, who, according to legend, was born there.
