Amjad Bseisu


Amjad Bseisu holds a BSc Honours degree in Mechanical Engineering from Duke University, an Msc and D.ENG degrees in Aeronautical Engineering from Stanford University, and an Executive MBA from SMU in 1986 when working for ARCO. From 1984 to 1998, Amjad worked for the Atlantic Richfield Company (ARCO), ultimately as Head of International Marketing, Negotiations and Business Development, and President of ARCO Petroleum Ventures and ARCO Crude Trading, Inc. Amjad was a founding chairman of Serica Energy plc and Stratic Energy Corporation.

In 1998, Amjad founded Petrofac Resources International Limited, the operations and investment arm of Petrofac, where he was Chief Executive and a member of the board of Petrofac Limited. His family trust was a major shareholder of Petrofac Limited upon listing on the London Stock Exchange in 2005, to become the largest European Oil Services company and a member of the FTSE 100. In April 2010, Amjad formed EnQuest PLC which became the largest UK independent producer only four years after start-up and was a member of the FTSE 250 companies upon listing.

Amjad was appointed British Business Ambassador for Energy by the UK Prime Minister and served from 2013 to 2016. He was appointed Chairman of the World Economic Forum Oil & Gas Independents Community in 2016 and continues to be an active Forum participant. Between 2010 and 2018, he was also non-executive Chairman of Enviromena Power Systems, a private company and the leading developer of renewable solar energy plants in the Middle East and North Africa.

Amjad is a supporter of many charities and sits on a number of charity boards. The Amjad and Suha Bseisu Foundation has been focused on children’s education, sports, and women’s empowerment, principally in the Middle East region.

Date: 25 – 28 OCTOBER 2019


4-days pre-conference fieldtrip that provides the setting of modern reef systems of Pulau
Seribu. This fieldtrip will provide details of the sedimentology and components of carbonate
Sediment and reef building organisms specific to Kepulauan Seribu, which is typical reefs of the region.

Good understanding on depositional environment and facies variation in carbonate rock is an important aspect of the study. Carbonate reservoir’s properties are the direct results of their depositional fabric and diagenesis process. Hence, the proposed fieldworks aims to provide an opportunity for participants to enhance knowledge on carbonate depositional environments, sedimentary facies and related secondary processes that controlled and characterised the carbonate reservoir’s properties.


Kepulauan Seribu is a cluster of about 128 small islands in the Bay of Jakarta in the Java Sea.
Participants will be based at Pulau Putri Resort throughout the stay at Kepulauan Seribu. It is located approximately 45 km north of Jakarta and can be reached in one hour and a half by speed boat.

Study of carbonates in Kepulauan Seribu offers the opportunity to observe and investigate modern carbonate sediments, reef building processes and evolution, facies distribution, build-up geometries and early diagenetic processes. Carbonates in this area exhibit characteristics that can be associated with global trends for Oligocene – Miocene rocks and provide useful analogues for carbonate fields in Central Luconia region.
