The International Division has provided a forum to members and guests
interested in the geology and hydrocarbon potential of the world since 1985. We
offer monthly free brown-bag lunchtime workshops and special social events. It
starts at noon with a 5 minute introduction, followed by a 10 minute “Rock
Shot” warm-up and the 30 minute main presentation, which leaves the last 15
minutes for networking. Upcoming events are detailed below.
The “Rocks Shots” could be anything interesting and should be light. In the
past we have had travelogues, world cultural heritage relationships between
geology and beverages, and quick geoscience knowledge. The main technical
presentation should cover geoscientific and/or broadly oil and gas related

Important Announcement from the CGEF:
The 4th CGEF Report of our Global Opportunities "GO" report will be released on 21 June 2021.
The “Global Opportunities: GO Boldly Where Others Dare Not” report from the Canadian Global Exploration Forum examines how Canadian oil and gas companies have been successful exploring and developing internationally while managing above-average risks in recent years.
Just like the previous 3 GO reports it will be available as a free download from our website.
