IOR Norway 2018


The entertaining conference proved that research on Improved Oil Recovery has never been more important.

The conference was opened by UiS Rector, Marit Boyesen and Director of The National IOR Centre of Norway, Merete Vadla Madland. Boyesen said that to implement cost efficient and environmentally friendly technologies for improving oil recovery on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, collaboration between academia and the industry is crucial.

“The IOR Centre delivers first class basic and applied research”, Boyesen explained and sent a special thanks to Merete Vadla Madland. The Centre Director added that to develop these new smart solutions for IOR it is hugely important to attract the best talents.

Then the State Secretary, Ingvil Tybring-Gjedde entered the stage and she emphasized that the Norwegian government strongly supports petroleum R&D and that Norway needs stable and predictable strategies for long term research management.

“The potential of additional value creation on the Norwegian Continental Shelf is substantial through IOR. Go straight back to work”, Tybring-Gjedde said.

“The National IOR Centre is very important, also for OG21 and the work to improve the environmental footprint. The oil and gas industry employs app. 200,000 people and is the most important industry here in Norway and therefor the young generation is important for a long time ahead”, Tybring-Gjedde concluded.

Contributions from IRIS researchers
On Monday 24 April the first part of the conference had a special focus on IOR on the Norwegian continental shelf followed by presentations about Simulation and modeling of IOR processes. Here Chief Scientist, Aksel Hiorth from UiS and IRIS presented Simulation Tools for Predicting IOR Potential on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The first day was ended with a series of presentations about Using the data information for IOR. Here Morten Jakobsen from UiB and IRIS presented Time-lapse full-waveform inversion as a smart monitoring tool for future IOR.  

County Mayor, Solveig Ege Tengesdal opened day two. After the introduction Sigmund Stokka from IRIS/DrilWell entered the stage. The DrillWell Director made a thorough presentation of the research centre DrillWell as contribution to the part about Joint work for future IOR. The rest of the day was filled with presentations about EOR methods for the future, Reservoir characterization and decision making and Sustainability of IOR.
