2009 IOR award

15/02/2010 Do you know someone who deserves to receive the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate's 2009 award for improved oil recovery – the IOR award?

The IOR award is intended to be a recognition of creativity, courage and willingness to take risks when it comes to applying methods and technology that can improve recovery beyond what is expected with current plans and methods.

Proposals for candidates – with a brief explanation and contact person – can be submitted by e-mail to IOR-Award@npd.no. The deadline for nominations is 15 March 2010.

The NPD's first IOR award was presented in 1998. Unfortunately, the NPD was unable to confirm worthy candidates for the award in 2008, as no significant measures were adopted or implemented that fulfilled the award criteria, i.e. exhibiting the courage, willingness and ability to improve recovery beyond statutory expectations.
