The Norwegian Petroleum Society is once again hosting its traditional biennial geophysical seminar in Kristiansand – March 2020.

With rising global demand, highly volatile prices and increasingly stringent environmental regulations, the oil and gas industry faces three major challenges:

  • Optimising the performance of its base assets.
  • Maintaining cost efficiency.
  • Improving its environmental footprint.

The industry has already been through a tough several years of drastic cost-cutting and re-structuring but is now more vigorous and adaptive and more resilient to a rapidly changing world than ever. To meet the increasingly difficult task of finding and producing more hydrocarbons, lessons from past experience should be applied – as well as trying new technologies and methods.

The programme committee would therefore like to encourage expanded abstract submissions for the 2020 conference. The committee would particularly encourage real case studies from Norwegian waters where new technology has been applied such as hi-res seismic acquisition, processing and imaging tools, OBC, machine learning, neural networks, AI and new/innovative ways of interpreting a complex diversity of data. Contributions from a diverse mix of oil companies, service companies and universities/institutes are welcome.
