IRIS attended the November Conference in Rio de Janeiro

19.11.2017

This year’s November Conference was held in Rio de Janeiro from November 6th-7th. In addition the Norwegian-Brazilian Business and Science week to place at the same time with many events on a wide range of topics.

IRIS participated in the 2-days November Conference in Rio de Janeiro, in collaboration with the Norwegian SINOS consortium partners SINTEF, IFE, UiO, NTNU, UiS and UiB. This year was the 5th anniversary of the conference and team IRIS consisted of Ying Guo, Ingebret Fjelde and Steinar Sanni. The conference was located at the Brazilian Centre for Physics Research (CBPF).

The conference had 6 technical sessions:
  • Exploration relevant geoscience
  • Material technology
  • Subsea operations
  • Flow assurances
  • Environment and IOR (chaired by IRIS)
 
Collaboration partners
Business Development Manager at IRIS, Ying Guo explains that IRIS contributed with 2 presentations within the environmental aspect of EOR chemicals, and modelling of complex wells.

- After the conference we also visited our collaboration partners and research groups at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-RIO), Center for Petroleum Studies at The University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Ying Guo explains.  - Our general impression is that Brazilian research groups are large, well equipped with sound experimental infrastructures, very dedicated and competent scientists working closely with master and Ph.D. students to generate high-quality research output. There is great potential for us to collaborate with these groups to improve our own research quality and to accelerate our innovation, Ying Guo continues.

Investments
Brazil is the 10th largest oil producer in the world with the recent fast deep-offshore field development which has many technological challenges such as large water depth, pre-salt carbonate reservoirs, heavy oil, high CO2 content, to mention a few. Norwegian companies have increasingly invested in their operations here and have established close partnerships within R&D with Brazilian companies and universities.  The November Conference is therefore an important collaboration arena where the Norwegian and Brazilian authorities and research groups meet to exchange information in order to stimulate R&D collaboration.

Organizers
The organizers of the conference are the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy, the Norwegian Research Council, Innovation Norway, Norwegian Energy Partners, Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation and Communication of Brazil, FINEP Brazil (equivalent to Innovation Norway). This year was the 5th anniversary of the conference.
