Oil and gas discoveries are said to be made because of clever geologists. That may very well be true. But we should not underestimate the importance of technology. Offshore exploration is in particular dependent om geophysical methods for making and appraising discoveries. We now also clearly see that improvements in technology play a larger part in exploration.
This is the background for a two day conference in which we highlight recent advances in exploration technology. The conference will focus on presenting cases where it can be demonstrated that emerging technologies have played a vital role in defining a play or a prospect.

The conference will run in parallell with the NCS prospect fair
The second prospect fair in Norway will take place in May, titled ”NCS Prospect Fair & Exhibition 2015”. These events are common in the UK and the US, and it is only the second time after last year’s successful exhibition, that such an event is available to companies active on the NCS.
Service companies will get the opportunity to share prospects defined by seismic and EM data, while oil companies will be given the opportunity to present prospects where they would like to share risk, or withdraw from, partly or fully.
The conference is organized by the Geological Society of Norway, in cooperation with GeoPublishing.
