North Africa and the Middle East hold huge reserves and resources of oil and gas and are some of the most important regions for future hydrocarbon production. Recent drilling successes onshore Algeria and offshore Egypt, and renewed industry interest in Libya have re-invigorated exploration in North Africa. The Middle East holds the majority of the world's remaining oil and gas and offers a showcase for new research into the major plays and recent exploration/production advances. The North Africa and Middle East session at the 7th Petroleum Geology Conference brought together 12 papers ranging from keynotes on regional play evaluation to detailed field studies. Ten of those papers are published in this volume.
