Due to high cost of the offshore operations in rough environment, the North Sea are in the top league for development of cutting-edge technologies for formation evaluation and geosteering. Many innovative solutions pioneered for the North Sea are now commercially available worldwide. Extensive research, technology development and investments in new equipment continue to remain the key factors that provide more value for each well delivered and maintain the North Sea`s competitiveness on the global market. Thus, NFES and NORCE believe that the Oil Capital of Norway (Stavanger) is a perfect arena for bringing together the people and sharing the ideas that would drive the oil industry forward for the next decades.
The workshop will take place at Sola Strand Hotel. The event is supported by:

The board committee hereby invites you to submit abstracts to present your research, innovation, and new technology in formation evaluation and geosteering across the following main topics:
- Borehole logging/reservoir mapping technology
- Static and dynamic modelling and inversion
- Uncertainty and decision analysis
- Case studies – techniques; positive and negative experiences
- Machine learning and statistical methods
- Reservoir and production surveillance
We are looking forward to seeing submissions from academia and presentations of new methodologies. We encourage the industry sharing negative experiences from real cases and known challenges.
To accomodate more diverse presentations into the workshop program, the comittee has decided to include a poster session to the program. The poster session is designed to diversify the program and facilitate small-group discussions during the workshop. It gets dedicated 90 minutes in the program on day 2, but the posters would be available to the participants during breaks throughout the workshop. We still have room in the poster session. Please, submit your contributions to the poster session within September 23.
The program will consist of 2 invited speakers, 5 plenary sessions and a poster session. The workshop will include complimentary lunches and conference dinner on November 5. The preliminary program can be found here.
