Petroleum Systems Conference

Created with Sketch. STAVANGER

The Norwegian Petroleum Society is organising a two day Petroleum Systems Conference (PSC) in Stavanger on May 29-30, 2018. This PSC will be the first arranged by NPF, aiming at establishing a biennial conference that will be popular and recognized throughout the petroleum industry.

Knowledge sharing and learning from both success and failure cases are key to increasing process understanding and exploration effectiveness, essential requirements for finding, developing and producing oil and gas resources. The oil and energy sector is in urgent need of new discoveries and one of the key criteria to success is a thorough understanding of the petroleum system. This year’s PSC will present a variety of multidisciplinary petroleum system case studies and examples including integration of geochemical, geological and geophysical workflows, and will be highly relevant to both petroleum system analysts and exploration geoscientists. The broad span of topics to be presented includes, but is not limited to:

  • Petroleum Systems Analysis for play and prospect evaluations, including Source Rock and Migration case studies
    • A key note paper on the NPD shallow cores taken recently in the Northern Barents Sea will be given by Jorge Sánchez-Borque, NPD
  • Geophysical methods and new technologies for imaging and improved understanding of Petroleum System components
    • A key note paper on the use of seismic data in source rock recognition will be given by Jan Ove Hansen, Statoil
  • Reservoir geo-dynamics; e.g. filling history, mixed charge identification, reservoir processes
    •  A key note paper on in-reservoir processes will be given by Paul Farrimond, IGI

On behalf of the Program Committee, I would like to welcome you to the 2018 PSC and hope to see you in Stavanger in May.

Elin Rein, Statoil
Leader of the Program Committee
