Summary of Geology Conference:
Geology Conference aims to provide a unique scientific and technical platform to share the research experiences among the best-available experts and professionals from all over the world engaged in different fields of Geology. It has so far been an important event and has attracted many scientists, engineers and researchers from academia and industry internationally. The important features of this conference are an opening session, topical sessions with keynote addresses and oral contributions, well organized workshops, symposium, poster presentations and world class exhibits, panel discussions & interactive sessions, collaborative research opportunities.
Importance & Scope:
Geology is the science which science dealing with the physical nature and history of the earth, including the structure and development of its crust, the composition of its interior, individual rock types, and the forms of life found as fossils. It is commercially important for mineral and hydrocarbon exploration / exploitation as well as for evaluating water resources. It is publicly important for the prediction and understanding of natural hazards and remediation of environmental problems. The science of geology is significant in locating water supplies, mineral resources, understanding the development of life on Earth, developing predictive models for earthquake, volcano, and tsunami activity.
4th International Conference on Geology and Geoscience (Geology & Geoscience-2017) provides an opportunity for academicians and professionals from various educational fields to share their knowledge, views, research findings and educational practices with their colleagues and academic community. We welcome all the contributors and participants to join us at the Geology & Geoscience-2017, where you will be sure to have a meaningful experience with experts from around the world.

Market analysis of Oil and Gas in the UAE:
The UAE is endowed with vast reserves of oil, both offshore and onshore. According to the UAE Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, the UAE maximum sustainable daily capacity of oil production (maximum production rate that can be sustained daily for one year in present conditions of exploitation) is 2 million barrels a day. Its installed production capacity is over 3 million barrels per day. In 2000, proven oil reserves in the UAE were 98.8 billion barrels, the third largest oil reserves in the world after Saudi Arabia, and Iraq. The UAE’s proven oil reserves were estimated to be almost 10 per cent of the proven world oil reserves in June 2000. On the basis of current daily oil production of 2 .2 million barrels per day, it is estimated that oil reserves in the UAE will last for more than 122 years. Proven gas reserves were estimated to be 6 trillion cubic metres in 2000. The UAE was estimated to have natural gas reserves equivalent to over 4 per cent of the known world gas. The UAE holds the fourth largest reserves of natural gas in the world. Gas reserves are estimated to last for more than 60 years. The UAE possesses, therefore, huge reserves of oil and gas, capable of sustaining long-term economic growth.
The major player in Dubai oil is the Dubai Petroleum Company (DPC) which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Conoco of the US. In Dubai Gas Demand rising day by day, the Dubai Aluminium Company is having its US $736 million Condor expansion project, making Dubai the second largest smelter in the world and the largest in the Middle East. The UAE has the fourth highest level of oil and gas reserves globally per capita, at about 15,000 barrels of oil equivalent. About 94% of the UAE’s crude oil reserves are located in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and Abu Dhabi marine operating company which is an affiliate of ADNOC has begun initial production from the offshore Umm Lulu oilfield in October 2014. By 2018, the oil field would add more than 100, 000 b/d of crude to the oil production capacity as per the EIU.
The UAE is currently the sixth-largest petroleum producer in the world. In 2013, hydrocarbon export revenues were $123 billion, up from approximately $75 billion in 2010, according to the International Monetary Fund. In addition to the growing hydrocarbon economy, the UAE is becoming one of the world's most important financial centres and a major trading Center in the Middle East. The UAE is also one of the world's leaders in the use of natural gas in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) techniques. The UAE is also investing in renewable energy technologies and has committed to produce at least 7% of total power generation from renewable sources by 2020.26 New solar capacity is planned to come online in the next few years, but it will amount to only a small share of total power generation.
According to MICAD (Ministry of International Cooperation and Development) total aid from the UAE granted to US$5.89 billion (Dh21.63 billion) in 2013. Much of this funding comes under the definition of Official Development Assistance (ODA) as required by the Development Assistance Committee of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD DAC). According to the resource and environmental protection report the Governor’s budget for 2015-16 proposes a total of $9.3 billion in expenses from the General Fund, various special funds, bond funds, and federal funds for resources and environmental protection programs.
