De-risking Gone Wrong? How to Increase Commercial Success Rates.


Learnings from NCS & UKCS

  • Sissel Eriksen; NPD, is coming
  • Nick Richardson, OGA, is coming

The use of geophysical and geochemical tools in de-risking of prospects

Panel discussion.

De-risking – from the inside

  • Will Halvor Jahre tell all his secrets? How did it happen that Lundin made a few decent discoveries?
  • And what about Aker BP? Let’s listen to Erik Holtar how they find oil. Not water.

Case studies – Learning from de-risking in practice
New ways of working

  • Hmmm, interesting!

Case studies – Learning from de-risking in practice

  • And here is one of several the highlight after lunch: Robert Trice of Hurricane will give the story behind the Lancaster Field in basement rocks.
  • Not to forget Ekaterina Gavrilova of Rosneft talking about de-risking of the Korpfjell prospect
  • And then – LE GRAND FINALE (concdrning what is  said  to be last year’s most intersting find): 36/7-4 Cara Discovery – de-risking done right

See the programme.
The backdrop for this conference is that few commercial discoveries are made despite many technical discoveries. Is this due to an exploration toolbox that is not sufficient for the proper de-risking of prospects?
Our objective is therefore to investigate the effectiveness of both geophysical and geochemical technologies by analysing various case studies
