The Norwegian Petroleum Society is happy to invite the geo-community both in Norway and abroad to its geophysical seminar the 18th – 20th of May 2022. The biennial seminar is now back in Kristiansand and is a popular networking event where recent achievements, case studies, industry trends and new developments in geophysical techniques are presented!
Geophysical Seminar postponed till 18 – 20 May 2022
Geophysical Seminar is one of NPF’s most popular conferences and there is a strong desire to physically gather in Kristiansand for both professional and social networking. Considering the unpredictable times we are in, we hope that postponing the conference till May will increase the possibility of organising a physical conference.
The seminar is set to be arranged as a physical event, but we will adapt the practical implementation in accordance with governmental advice and guidelines. In case of restrictions on the number of seats, participants are given priority according to the “first come, first served” principle.
The geophysical community finds itself in the crossfire between a world with mounting environmental concerns and an increasing need for cheap and reliable energy to preserve and develop the safety and quality of life for billions of people. The only thing we can say with certainty about the future is that it is uncertain and that we, as a geophysical community, need to adapt to the varying conditions.
The industry has already been through several years of drastic cost-cutting and re-structuring which was exacerbated by the Covid pandemic, but signs of recovery and normalization are visible. In this recovery the need for a wide range of geophysical methods will increase, not only for oil and gas exploration and development, but also for a wide range of new applications such as CCS, geothermal prospecting, windfarm prospecting, landslides, avalanches, or water resource mapping.

The deadline for submissions have now ended.Thank you to everyone that have submitted an abstract and for the interest of attending the seminar in March. We hope that we can soon present a program with real case studies from Norwegian waters where new technology has been applied such as hi-res seismic acquisition, processing and imaging tools, OBS, machine learning, neural networks, AI and new/innovative ways of interpreting a complex diversity of data. Furthermore showcase examples of geophysical methods used outside the oil & gas area, such as for CCS, mining, engineering, or monitoring of natural systems.
