Focus on Europe: Exploration Plays, Opportunities, and Challenges

Open to all registered attendees.

This session will be focused on Europe, touching all the previous topics when applied to European exploration plays. It includes how Europe will respond to energy challenges (technology, business, community, energy alternatives, affordable energy) and how Europe is contributing to meeting the energy need of the world's growing population.
