Welcome to a 2-day seminar and dinner. The ambition of the forum is to promote communication between the oil & gas industry and the Norwegian Earth Sciences and Petroleum Engineering Research Institutes to bring about valuable R+D projects. The agenda will include sessions focusing on the GGRE aspects of improved exploration and production (Oil and Gas recovery) which is in line with the two FORCE Technical groups. Dates may be subject to change due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
|17 November||2 days||Valhall-Ptil|
If you have registered and paid for this seminar you will stay registered for when Joining Forces will be held in 2021
The focus for the event is to provide the opportunity for industry to share their perspectives on R&D: what are our challenges; what do we want R&D to focus on; what are our R&D strategies. There will be several short presentations from different companies providing a range of views on R&D requirements for the Petroleum industry in Norway.
In addition, we anticipate having a selection of presentations from the Research Departments and there will be facility for posters on specific projects.
The “Organising Committee” comprises individuals from Force companies and University representatives to provide perspectives at an organizational level. Please feel free to also contact us if you have any questions or suggestions.
