This is the home page of Dr. Duncan Macgregor and of the Online Paleotectonics and Paleogeography of Africa project.  Most of this site is now devoted to maps I am working on covering the paleotectonic and paleogeographic history of Africa. For a YouTube video of this work please click







Please contact me at for comments on these maps, consultancy services, quotes on inhouse training courses and briefings or invitations to non-profit making conferences.I do not attend commercial conferences and am not interested in having my website redesigned or any services.

I am an acknowledged expert with over 35 years of experience in the field of new venture and exploration geology with specific expertise in the African plate (including the Eastern Mediterranean). I first spent 20 years with BP, working largely in the Far East, particularly in Indonesia, then worked and consulted for a number of independent companies and consultancies, including Surestream, PGS, Mossgas, Sasol, Neftex, Noble, Richmond and BG, on new ventures and play fairway scale studies, mainly in Africa.  My publications to date comprise over 20 papers (see publications) and the editing of three publications on African petroleum geology.  I am a honorary member of the Petroleum Society of Great Britain. I am now semi-retired but still do consultancy work on demand
