The PESGB, Petroleum Group and AAPG (European Region) are co-organising the Petroleum Geoscience Collaboration Showcase (PGCS) as part of PETEX 2016. The PGCS showcases the business challenges addressed by collaborative research projects, enables researchers to demonstrate societal and economic benefits from their research, and provides a forum for post-doctoral, PhD and MSc presentations.

The showcase provides an excellent opportunity for industry and academia to meet, get inspired and demonstrate the value of collaborative applied research. There will be ample opportunity for graduates and potential future employers to connect. This year the PGCS will also include extended poster sessions at which applicant’s research will be displayed within the main events hall for all attendees to view.

We encourage joint presentations by industrial sponsors and student/post-doc/academic researchers. This is intended to frame the industrial problem before the technical results are reported and/or to conclude by showing the applied, economic benefits of the research. We also welcome overview presentations from the principal investigators of major Joint Industry Projects (JIPS).

Prizes will be awarded for the best oral and poster presentations, which includes the recipients’ attendance at the Petroleum Group’s annual dinner.

Suggested Themes Include:

  • Petroleum Systems

  • Stratigraphy and sedimentology

  • Reservoir geology and engineering

  • Structural geology and basin evolution

  • Geophysical imaging and interpretation
  • Unconventional energy and carbon sequestration

  • Analogue and numerical modelling

  • Novel techniques and applications

  • Environmental impacts of petroleum activities

  • Case histories of joint industry – academia research and knowledge transfer
