On behalf of the Organizing Committee of V International Scientific and Technical Conference "Geology and hydrocarbon potential of the Balkan-Black Sea region" I cordially invite scientists, researchers and professionals, managers and businessmen to participate in the forum.

Globally, the largest investments in the mineral-raw materials sector are putting for oil and gas exploration and production. Large-scale projects implemented recently in the Balkan-Black Sea region by foreign and domestic companies resulted in new oil and gas discoveries. A significant amount of new data has been obtained, that requires analysis, consideration and interpretation for clarification of deep structure and hydrocarbon potential in the region. The global and national significance of exploration and extraction of unconventional gas is increased. Actual problem for Bulgaria is the diversification of sources and supplies of natural gas, including the unconventional resources.

The conference participants will have the opportunity to learn new results and ideas for: geology and oil and gas prospectivity of the region; unconventional hydrocarbon sources; modern methods and technologies for, exploration, production and storage of oil and gas; marine oil-gas industry; ecology and monitoring. This conference is good opportunity for professional discussions, establishment of personal and business contacts, exchange of scientific and practical experience on the discussed issues.

I am confident that you will enjoy the beauties and charms of the Varna coastal area - the pearl of the Bulgarian Black Sea region.
