20 – and still counting (?)

As of September 30, altogether 20 oil companies have committed to give a talk at the 3rd NCS Exploration Strategy Conference.

The conference is an opportunity for oil companies to share and learn immediate plans and short-term strategies for exploring the NCS, hence providing a broader insight into short- and long-term exploration offshore Norway and how companies build their portfolios in order to maximize reserves.

We currently have the following companies on the confirmed speaker list, and tentative program:

NPD, OGA , Equinor, DNO, MOL, Neptune, PGNiG, Lundin, Lime, Lotos, Petoro, Concedo, OKEA, Spirit Energy, Cycle Petroleum, Total, Aker BP, Vår Energi, INEOS, M Vest, Lukoil, ConocoPhillips

Some relevant topics for the 2019 conference:

  • More than 70 wells are planned in the next years, which will be the next 15 discoveries?
  • How to prioritize near field vs. frontier exploration?
  • Norway vs. UK – is the competition back?
  • Buying vs. exploring – how to make the balance
