Production Optimization and Reservoir Management for a Sustainable Development

The three pillars of sustainable development are Social progress, Environmental responsibility and Economic development. When it comes to the Norwegian oil and gas industry, the first pillar is strong, and today, the Norwegian welfare system to a large extent rests upon the oil and gas industry. Environmental responsibility is also healthy on the Norwegian shelf, thanks to strong regulations, however moving the focus to new areas and shallow reservoirs makes things more challenging, and ageing fields with increasing watercut do not contribute to a lower environmental footprint per lifted barrel. Economic development, on its side, is threatened by volatile oil price and relatively flexible onshore shale oil production.

To ensure sustainability of the Norwegian Continental Shelf, improving Production Optimization and Reservoir Management is necessary and this can be achieved through cooperation between industry, research institutions and authorities, as well as experience transfer to identify what works and what does not work.
The network group will shape the program and directly invite most of the speakers. However, to make sure we don’t miss exciting presentations, we also encourage companies to share field examples and updates on recent achievements, and send abstracts within 28.5.2018 covering the following themes:
Cost Effective Field Development and Operation, improving lifting cost (dollar spent per barrel lifted)
Reducing CO2-emissions from Norwegian oil and gas extraction (CO2 emissions per barrel lifted)
Containment: safe injection, limiting out of zone injection
Cessation: plugging wells for an “eternal perspective”
