NCS Exploration - Recent Advances 2017. May 10th-11th.

De-risking Gone Wrong? How to Increase Commercial Success Rates.

The backdrop for this conference is that few commercial discoveries are made despite many technical discoveries. Is this due to an exploration toolbox that is not sufficient for the proper de-risking of prospects?

The objective is therefore to investigate the effectiveness of both geophysical and geochemical technologies by analysing various case studies.

May 10th-11th the NCS Exploration - Recent Advances will be held at Scandic Fornebu. 

For this conference it is planned for 6 sessions:

  • Session 1: Introduction
  • Session 2: The geophysical toolbox
  • Session 3: The geochemical toolbox
  • Session 4: De-risking – from the inside
  • Session 5: Case studies – Learning from de-risking in practice
  • Session 6: Case studies – Learning from de-risking in practice

Preliminary program has been published, you can se it here:
