Petroleum Systems Conference 2023


Welcome to the Petroleum Systems Conference (PSC) 2023

23 – 24 May 2023, Quality Hotel Expo, Fornebu (Oslo)

Conference language: English

Call for abstracts 👇

This is the third edition of the Petroleum Systems Conference (PSC). This follows great participation and success in the prior meetings in Stavanger in 2018 and the virtual conference held in 2021.

The PSC 2023 will be held 23 – 24 May at Fornebu, close to Oslo, and aims to improve understanding and collaboration between petroleum system practitioners and geoscientists in both academia and industry. In the context of the current global energy challenges, petroleum systems analysis must continue to play a central role in delivering the discoveries needed to meet the medium-term energy demand.  In addition, the technical understanding and integrated nature of this discipline make it one of the core capabilities required to facilitate the longer-term energy transition. To achieve these goals, the petroleum systems analyst must extract greater depths of information from the wealth of data obtained from decades of exploration, while continuing to develop novel approaches to interrogate samples or models with greater specificity and precision. This endeavor will be greatly supported by the ongoing digital revolution and application of advanced analytics.

As with the previous editions, this PSC will present inter-disciplinary petroleum systems case studies, showcasing the integration of geochemical, geological and geophysical workflows across the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS). We encourage submission of presentations spanning topics including, but not limited to:

  • The continued search for alternative source rocks on the NCS
  • Extracting more information from established workflows and application of data science
  • Investigation of new state of the art geochemical techniques and integration of next generation basin modeling approaches
  • The application of petroleum systems analysis to new environmental and energy transition challenges.

Confirmed keynote speaker:

  • John Eiler from Caltech
