Luncheon with speaker Peter Putnam of Central European Petroleum
on petroleum exploration in East Germany and other parts of the former East Bloc
at the Calgary Petroleum Club - Cardium Room

Petroleum energy markets of Central Europe are materially influenced by present-day geopolitical stresses between Russia and the so-called 'West'.  These stresses, and the commercial opportunities created by them, have origins anchored within the 20th Century history of this region.

Geologist Dr. Peter Putnam, Chair and Chief Executive Officer of Central European Petroleum Ltd., will review the lessons learned that have allowed their company to operate successfully in this often overlooked region.
