Welcome to the Biennial Reservoir Characterization Conference 2021 in Stavanger

Getting the basics right: The impact of reservoir characterization on key business decisions.

NPF and the program committee is pleased to invite you to this years seminar. Conference program will be published soon so stay tuned for more details!

Basic reservoir characterisation, together with new technologies and recent advantages in digitalization, are fundamental factors for making good business decisions in exploration and reservoir development. This conference aims to present case studies where multidisciplinary and integrated approaches to reservoir characterization has enhanced our knowledge and created new insight of the subsurface.

The conference will run over two days, split into four sessions

  1. Sedimentology, diagenesis and reservoir quality
  2. Structural reservoir characterization
  3. Integrated reservoir characterization – the key to understanding uncertainty
  4. Unusual reservoirs

Call for abstracts:

The conference aims to deliver a mix of selected presentations from invited speakers and submitted presentations from the industry and academia. We especially welcome case studies where the impact of reservoir characterisation on key business decisions (reservoir model design, drainage strategy, infill wells etc.) are clear.

Call for abstract deadline has noe ended.
