Three speaker from IRIS contributed as presenters at the conference: Geir Nævdal gave his talk “Reservoir characterization using ensemble based methods”. Aksel Hiorth presented a new IOR simulator in his talk “IORSim – an add-on tool to ECLIPSE for fast and accurate simulation of multiphase geochemical interactions at the field scale” and Johan Olav Helland presented “Three-phase fluid displacements on the pore scale: method and mechanisms”. Aksel Hiorth and Geir Nævdal are also the theme leaders of the two themes of the IOR Centre:
 
  • “Theme 1: Mobile and immobile oil and EOR methods”
  • “Theme 2: Mobile oil – Reservoir characterization to improve volumetric sweep”

Developing the IORSim is one of the main activities within Theme1 and IRIS’ long term and highly recognized research within ensemble-based methods for reservoir characterization is one of the pillars of the research within Theme2.

Following the conference was a one-day workshop, focusing on EOR at laboratory scale i.e. micro scale and core scale.

The date for the 2016 conference by The National IOR Centre of Norway will be 26-27 April 2016.
