The main focus will be on the value operations geoscientists deliver and the pivotal role they play via the following topics:

The value of learning lessons well – what is a lesson?; how are lessons learned and managed (e.g. avoiding non productive/invisible lost time)?; practical examples of lessons with demonstrable change; personal willingness to share failure/sub optimal performance

Risks and safety of operations – identifying, managing, communicating risks and planning contingencies effectively

Formation pressure and geomechanics – sharing good practice, techniques and knowledge, prediction and detection methods

The value of managing and interpreting data – effective data management for field life, examples of cross company collaboration

Overarching themes:

  • Value of these themes to well life cycle
  • Sharing real world examples and case studies
  • Importance of personal behavioural skills throughout (leadership, communication, relationship building and influencing others)
  • Share good practice, showcasing innovative approaches and technologies

We look forward to active participation from our colleagues across subsurface, drilling and engineering disciplines to significantly broaden the main conference themes.  

There will be a parallel poster session in the library.

Conference Dinner: 

There will be a conference dinner, at the Cavendish Hotel, London, on the first night of the conference. You can register for this online or by downloading the registration form.
