The mature fields on the NCS are moving towards tail production and many new discoveries are complex and often marginal.
This year’s conference aims to present multidisciplinary case studies and examples of novel and efficient ways of working on reservoir characterization tasks. Core analysis remain a key part of the work flow for understanding the subsurface environment and calibrating reservoir models.
The conference committee is pleased to present this year’s core viewings:
Wisting field core viewing (OMV)
Cores from the Wisting field. Will be presented by Eirik Stueland.
Brasse discovery core viewing (DNO)
Cores from the Brasse discovery (31/7-1 and possibly 31/7-2S). Will be presented by Donatella Mellere.
Ula field core viewing (Aker BP)
Cores from the Ula field. New concept and new model. Will be presented by Eirik Rosseland Knutsen.
Solveig/Luno 2 field core viewing (Lundin)
Cores from the Solveig field. Will be presented by Ronald Sørlie.
