IRIS among the best groups in the evaluation of the basic and long-term research

26.06.2015

In the official report from the evaluation of the basic and long-term research within Engineering Science in Norway (Teknologifagevalueringen), we find the evaluation of 64 research units (universities, university colleges and institutes). The panels focused on the quality and relevance of engineering science in Norway.

The Drilling and Well Modelling group at IRIS is highlighted in the main report as a group that perform at a very high level. IRIS is very proud to announce that all three evaluated groups at IRIS were among the best.

Three groups in IRIS were evaluated:

* Drilling and Well Modelling
* Enhanced Oil Recovery
* Reservoir

The result is visualized in the diagram below, were we find the evaluation criteria along the axes. The spread of Scientific Quality and Productivity of the research groups assessed, versus the spread of Societal and Industrial Relevance and Impact of the groups. All three groups at IRIS fall into the upper right hand quartile!

The three IRIS groups were among the best groups in the evaluation. The scientific quality and productivity for IRIS ranged from 3 to 4 (1-5, where 5 is the highest) and societal and industrial relevance and impact ranged from B-C to A (E-A, where A is the highest).

In particular, it is worth mentioning the reservoir group’s work with the EnKF technology leading to many publications and high citations index, resulted in a grade 4 on scientific quality and productivity. The Drilling and Well Modelling group was awarded with an A on societal and industrial relevance and impact. The top grade was based on the group’s work improving the safety and reducing costs within drilling, several patents and succeeding in commercialization of two products through a start-up company.

For the EOR group, the panel mentioned collaboration with UiS as a beneficial scientifically cooperation and explicitly noticed the impressive range of research laboratories.

This reflects the good work that has been done in IRIS Energy over the last decade!
