Siv won the Skjæveland Award 2018

02.05.2018

Siv Marie Åsen, the most recent employed PhD student at The National IOR Centre of Norway, won the Skjæveland Award 2018.

The Skjæveland Award 2018 was given during the second day of the conference IOR NORWAY. It is The National IOR Centre of Norway's prize for young researchers. The award is named after the Centre's father, Professor Svein M. Skjæveland. The prize goes to a young researcher within IOR (improved oil recovery) that has shown the ability to innovate within his or her field.

Surprised winner
Siv Marie Åsen has recently received a research fellowship from The National IOR Centre of Norway, and has therefore taken leave of work as a researcher at IRIS. Åsen holds a master's degree in organic chemistry from the University of Oslo. In recent years, she has worked in the enhanced oil recovery group at IRIS. She was clearly surprised to receive the prize, and thought it was Aud Berggraf Sæbø's profit. Sæbø courses PhD students in presentation skills just before the conference.

Presented in Tulsa
The research presented by Åsen during the IOR conference, was also presented during a SPE conference in Tulsa earlier this April; «An Experimental Investigation of Polymer Mechanical Degradation at cm and m Scale». This was the jury: Professor Ann Muggeridge from Imperial College, London, professor Yu-Shu Wu from Colorado School of Mining, Erik Søndenå, Petoro and Anders Soltvedt, Norwegian Petroleum Directorate.
