Last week, this year’s first Hydrocarbon Habitats seminar took place in Oslo and Stavanger.

The seminar was visited by a crowd of experts from the exploration community. The organizers GeoPublishing and Geonova are glad that the reduced fee for unemployed geoscientists and students was well received. Amongst the 150 participants were also representatives from no less than 24 oil companies, eager to learn more about injectites.  

Speakers from academia, oil companies and service companies provided relevant insights in eight talks which were concluded with an interesting panel discussion. One of the hot topics that have been discussed at the seminar was for example the potential of sand intrusions as great reservoirs.

Aker BP presented a success story with injectites in the Volund field, including the satellites Viper and Kobra with less than 10 MMbo to be recovered. The participants further learned about the immature play concept and data from CGG and PGS show that there are more prospects to be found in other parts of the NCS.
