IRIS well represented at SPE One-day

22.04.2016

SPE Bergen One-day 2016 was held in Grieghallen 20 April. This was the 23rd international SPE Bergen One-day seminar, and as always IRIS was well represented with presentations, e-poster and exhibition stand.

SPE Bergen One-Day brought together oil and gas professionals, experts, researchers and students, among others. Erlend Vefring, Vice President of IRIS Energy, reckons it’s important to participate on the seminar.

̶  IRIS has been present here for a long time, and this is an important arena to be on. Here we meet contacts and customers, he says.

The first presenter from IRIS was chief scientist Arne Stavland with the paper “Polymers and Polymer-Based Gelants for Improved Oil Recovery and Water Control Applications in Naturally Fractured Chalk Formations”.

Research scientist Xiaodong Luo was next with the paper “An Ensemble 4D Seismic History Matching Framwork with Sparse Representation Based on Walvelet”, and the lasts one from IRIS to present was senior researcher engineer Liv Almås Carlsen. Her presentation was on “Discussion on Potential Problems due to Methane Invasion in OBM while Overbalanced”.

In addition to high-end technical presentations, the seminar featured a substantial exhibition and a full-day software demonstration. In the opening ceremony Mayer of Bergen, Marte Mjøs Persen, emphasized the importance of the seminar in times of oil price decreasing.

̶  Instead of painting a black picture, I want to paint a more balanced picture. This seminar is important for what we are experiences today. I hope, despite the current situation, you will be inspired for the future of the petroleum industry, she said.

Persen also touched upon climate changes in her speech, and said that the agreement in Paris was a step forward.

̶����� Instead of seeing the Norwegian gas and oil production as a problem, I see it as part of the
solution. Here we can create new possibilities and transfer knowledge, she said.
