SEAPEX LANGKAWI FIELD TRIP (October/November 2024) :: Wednesday 30 Oct 2024 to Friday 01 Nov 2024

Login to attend – for SEAPEX members only.

At : LANGAWI

Per Participants – USD850**

Langkawi (“Island of Legends”) the jewel of Kedah is a group of 104 islands located 30 km offshore western peninsula Malaysia and is a paradise for geologists. It’s so much of a paradise that in 2015 it was officially dedicated as a global Geopark and one of only two in Malaysia. Outcropping are some of the best and most interesting exposures of Palaeozoic to Mesozoic rocks in southeast Asia ranging in age from Cambrian to Cretaceous. These include a variety of clastic and carbonate lithologies deposited under varied palaeoenvironments ranging from tropical shallow seas to ice influenced glacial deposits. To add further complexity these sedimentary rocks have been intruded by younger granites providing an opportunity to observe both igneous textures/weathering, structures, and their related metamorphic overprints.

SEAPEX in association with KLEX Malaysia is planning to conduct a fieldtrip to examine both the multiple aspects of the geology of Langkawi and to generate field discussion around topics such as the provenance of the Tertiary deepwater clastic deposits in the adjacent Andaman Sea and also the potential petroleum systems of the frontier Langkasuka basin.

At this stage we are merely seeking to determine interest and numbers for a three-day trip which will commence and end at Langkawi airport and which will cost per participant around US$850*. Timing for the trip will likely be either October/November 2024 or linked to the SEAPEX Convention in April 2025. The trip will have a full safety audit and all transportation used will have been inspected and approved for use to acceptable industry standards.

** This is cost without SEAPEX subsidy.
