Recent Advances May 2015

in Exploration Technology & NCS Prospect Fair

Scandic Fornebu, May 20-21, 2015

To follow up on last years Recent Discoveries, The Geological Society of Norway together with GeoPublishing is presenting Recent Advances.

Oil and gas discoveries are said to be made because of clever geologists. That may very well be true. But we should not underestimate the importance of technology. Offshore exploration is in particular dependent on geophysical methods for making and appraising discoveries. We now also clearly see that improvements in technology play a larger part in exploration.

It will be two days with presentations which highligt recent advances in exploration technology.
The preliminary program are ready. You can find it here: Preliminary program.

Two of the keynotes will be:
Anders Farestveit, Working Chairman at Magseis
The next ten years. A brave look int the future of seismic acquisition for the purpose of prividing cheaper and better data.

Jarand Rystad, Managing Partner at Rystad Energy
Value creation from exploration at NCS despite oil price collapse? A review of recent successes and opportunities ahead.
