The Biennial Geophysical Seminar
The Norwegian Petroleum Society is once again organising its traditional three day geophysical seminar, this time at Fornebu, just outside Oslo centre. The biennial seminar has become popular and recognized throughout the petroleum industry. The themes of these seminars highlight recent achievements, changes and new developments in geophysical techniques relevant to the petroleum industry.
A New Dawn
The current situation in the industry drives the pursuit of different approaches for continuous technology development and the effective application of these technologies. A New Dawn can be a question but also a prophecy. We encourage papers that shed light on the future of geophysical exploration and development. This could be new ways of collaboration, new technology, software development and especially automation or new areas of geophysical applications.
Knowledge sharing is a valuable component for many companies to improve their success and effectiveness, and in these times this appears to be more important than ever. We appreciate all who share their experiences and requested abstract submissions from a broad spectrum of companies operating on the Norwegian continental shelf.
Prior to this conference we called for a wide range of geophysical papers, including studies demonstrating best practices and breakthrough technologies and case studies within exploration and production and how geophysics can be used to increase safe operations related to oil and gas production.
On behalf of the Organising Committee I would like to welcome you to the seminar.
