Underexplored Plays - Part III

We welcome you to the third Underexplored Plays Conference! This year we have put together what we hope will be an inspiring programme where we focus on:

  • How to generate new ideas and concepts
  • How to mature a new or underexplored play
  • Play inspiration
  • How to drill and develop a new play

 A broad range of very interesting national and international speakers are presenting, addressing the above themes with examples covering a wide variety of plays, mainly focused towards NW Europe, including the emerging fractured basement play west of Shetland. Furthermore, the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate and the Danish Nordsøfonden will present the latest view of the main plays of their respective regions. We are also fortunate to have speakers from other industries from where it is possible to apply direct learnings. The role of exploration in (near) future will also be addressed.

This is a great place to expand your technical network, so do join the evening dinner event in Hall Toll in Stavanger harbour.

We wish you a warm welcome to the Underexplored Plays - Part III Conference!
