Webinar: Petroleum Systems Conference 2021
The Norwegian Petroleum Society is once again organising the two-day Petroleum Systems Conference (PSC). The PSC will be organised 2 - 3 February 2021.
Conference language: English
Due to the increasing spread of Covid-19, the Norwegian Petroleum Society (NPF) has decided to arrange this year's PSC as a webinar.
NPF takes its precautions seriously where health and safety will always be of the highest priority. This goes for the oil & gas sector at large and we have received information from several regarding both travel restrictions and conference bans in the months to come.
It is sad not to be able to physically gather in Oslo for both professional and social networking. The conference is a highly popular conference, and we know that you, like us, have been looking forward to it. NPF will nevertheless do its outmost as an organiser to ensure that this year's conference will be just as good despite the change in format.
This is the second edition of the Petroleum Systems Conference (PSC), which started off with great participation and success in 2018 in Stavanger.
The PSC aims to improve understanding and collaboration between petroleum system experts and exploration geoscientists. 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 are in urgent need of new discoveries and one of the key criteria to success is a thorough understanding of the petroleum system. The petroleum system starts with the source rock. Therefore, a focus of the PSC will be on novel approaches, methods and case studies for source rock understanding and overlooked source rocks.
The PSC will also present a variety of multidisciplinary petroleum system case studies and examples including integration of geochemical, geological and geophysical workflows. The broad span of topics to be presented includes, but is not limited to:
Improved Source rock understanding
Data integration, digitalization and advanced analytics
Petroleum systems analysis case studies for play and prospect evaluations and modeling
The deadline for submission of abstracts has now ended!
Thanks to everyone submitting an abstract this year!
On behalf of the Program Committee, I would like to welcome you to the PSC and hope to see you at the 2021 webinar.

All participants will receive an e-mail with an invitation link the day prior the webinar. The link is personal, and you will be asked to enter name and company.
As a participant you will follow the webinar via a PC, Mac or smartphone/tablet. Internet access and web browser is therefore vital in order to attend.
There will be a short Q&A session after each presentation, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions directly to the presenters.
Abstracts from the webinar will be available for download after end of conference. Participants will be informed when available by e-mail.
Conference fee online participation:
NPF personal members NOK 4,400 plus 25% VAT
Non-members NOK 5,900 plus 25 % VAT

Cancellations must be received in writing by 14th January 2021, and will be subject to a cancellation fee NOK 2,000 unless a substitute delegate is offered. After this date, the full registration fee will apply, however, substitutions will still be accepted. Substitutions for registered delegates may be made at any time, but we would appreciate prior notification.
In case of cancellation of the conference by the Norwegian Petroleum Society, (NPF), the participant will be refunded the conference fee and/or the exhibition fee. Other expenses the participants may have are not refunded, and is not the responsibility of NPF.
Events beyond the control of the NPF – for example, but not limited to, extreme weather conditions, acts of war, terrorism, transportation shut-down (strikes or accidents), government regulation or advisory including travel warnings, serious illness or epidemics that makes it impossible to fulfill the obligations of conducting the conference entitle NPF to cancel the event without liability.
It is sometimes necessary to change timing of the programme. The conference organiser will not be liable for any such unavoidable changes.
