  2. 2. Introduction from the Chairperson On behalf of the GEO 2012 Executive Committee, it gives me a great pleasure to invite you to join us in Bahrain for the 10th Middle East Geosciences Conference and Exhibition. Over the last two decades, GEO has established itself as the premier forum for presenting and learning about best practices, new developments and applications in geosciences in the Middle East region. The theme of the conference, “Shaping the Future of Geoscience in the Middle East”, focuses on the current challenges facing hydrocarbon exploration and production with emphasis on future technology and opportunities. The conference alsoaims to highlight the increased environmental challenges in the region by sharing best practices in exploring andproducing hydrocarbons in the most environmentally responsible manner.Undoubtedly, this conference is very well attended by decision makers, senior executives and the most talentedscientists and engineers in the hydrocarbon industry. Hence, I would like to invite you to contribute to one of themost successful events in the region and the future advancement of our industry.Intisaar Al Kindy - Petroleum Development Oman From the Conference Secretariat oral and/or poster, online by following the instructions shown on www.
