02/02/2016 The Force forum aims to strengthen cooperation in research and development projects (R&D) at a two-day seminar hosted by the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate. The Joining Forces seminar starts today.
Sixty-seven researchers and representatives from the authorities and companies are joining forces in the hope of finding solutions for improved oil recovery and more efficient exploration. The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate participates in Force as a member, secretariat and accountant.
Hans-Oddvar Augedal, chief geologist in Lundin and chair of Force’s steering committee, says that Force has achieved “an open sharing of expertise and knowledge between the companies within exploration, production and improved recovery, benefitting the industry as well as development of the shelf.”
