About Canadian Global Exploration Forum

The Canadian Global Exploration Forum (CGEF), a non-profit organization promoting international exploration and production, invite you to “A New Beginning for Global E&P – Leveraging Canadian Expertise”. This year’s conference, presented in association with the Global Petroleum Show, Calgary, will host 7 Plenary Sessions addressing; Global Dynamics, Evolving Markets, Capital Funding, Oilfield Service Demand, Unconventional Opportunities, What’s Hot Where, and What the Future Holds.

The mission of CGEF is to facilitate cooperation amongst Canadian international petroleum exploration and production companies through the sharing of expertise, technology, and opportunities; and to promote member companies through the development of affiliations with government agencies in Canada and internationally.


As the 2018 CGEF Conference partnered with Global Petroleum Show, you will be redirected to the GPS Library in order to download the event proceedings. 


"The Canadian Global Exploration Forum is one of the most important settings for Canada's oil and gas community to learn about the outstanding opportunities for international investment. With Canadian oil exports limited to the US market, the next best growth opportunities are off shore. Canadian companies should leverage this forum to help shape growth agendas."
