Hydrocarbon Habitats Dec. 3, 2014

APA: Survival of the fittest

The conference will take place in Oslo on December 3, at the Oslo Kongressenter.

In 2003 the Government introduced the annual system of Awards in Predefined Areas (APA) in mature parts of the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS). This system replaced the annual North Sea Awards.

Ifølge Oljedirektoratets siste ressursrapport er det mulig med en tilvekst i reserver på 1200 millioner Sm3 de neste 10 årene, ca. 80 % av dette anslås å ligge i allerede påviste felt og funn.
Hvordan kan vi som jobber med geofag i utbyggingsprosjekter og i felt i produksjon bidra til å nå dette målet?

According to the NPD's last resource report, a growth in reserves of 1200 million Sm3 over the next 10 years is achievable. Around 80 % of this is estimated to be in the already proven fields and discoveries.
How can we who work with geoscienses in Development and Production projects assist with this goal?

The Norwegian Sea: Unlocking the Secrets of the Deep Water


December 11th

Oslo Kongressenter Folkets Hus

11:00 - 17:00

Recent discoveries in the North Sea and Barents Sea have opened new and promising play models. At the same time the activity in the Norwegian Sea has been decreasing. We question if this is reflecting a real difference in prospectivity, or if it is because a tendency to "follow the leader" and give priority to the most popular trends?

The "shallow" waters of the Norwegian Sea, and in particular the Halten/Dønna terrace area, have experienced numerous and giant discoveries since the area was opened for exploration in 1980. In the platform area, the Draugen Field is the only economical discovery, but recent licensing indicates that some companies have ideas that may turn out new discoveries.

In contrast, the deep waters of the Norwegian Sea have seen many disappointments and only a few gas discoveries. Naturally, this has resulted in diminishing interest, as exemplified in the 22nd licensing round. However, with a very low well density, it is fair to say that the deep water is still a frontier province.

The Geological Society of Norway (NGF) has therefore taken the initiative to revive the interest in the entire Norwegian Sea by arranging a half-day seminar in the highly successful series Hydrocarbon Habitats.
