Welcome from the 2022 Conference Co-Chairs
After several really challenging years for the oil and gas industry we now see pessimism turning into optimism as product prices and industry activity is increasing. However, the future is still uncertain, both in the short and long term. Population and economic growth still drive the global need for energy to increase.
The focus on energy transition is growing, driven by large positive steps forward in global climate discussions and rapid technology development. At the same time we must remember changing our huge and complex global energy system will inevitably take time and oil and gas will have a very important part in the energy mix for decades to come. To be competitive in an uncertain future, our industry’s ability to increase efficiency, innovate, develop and make use of new technology is ever important.
Lessons learnt during the Covid pandemic combined with rapidly developing digital technologies will continue to change the way we work. Collaboration between industry players is important to respond actively to challenges and opportunities facing us.
The SPE Norway Subsurface Conference will focus on innovation and technology as well as operational challenges and solutions within drilling, reservoir management and production.
On behalf of the Programme Committee, we invite you to submit an abstract for consideration by 27 September 2021. If selected you will present at the conference and your work will be published and reach a global community via OnePetro.
We truly believe this conference represents a great opportunity to see the latest technology, update your knowledge and meet companies and industry colleagues to discuss challenges and opportunities in our changing industry context.
We look forward to seeing you in Bergen in April!
