Organised by:
Earls Court 2, London
Event status:

The Petroleum Group, in conjunction with the PESBG and AAPG, is organising the Petroleum Geoscience Research Collaboration Showcase (PGRCS) as an independent international conference within the auspices of PETEX 2012 (20-22 Nov). The PGRCS conference 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 and postgraduate presentations.

This “conference within a conference” format was successfully launched at PETEX 2010 and proved an excellent opportunity for industry and academia to meet, to get inspired and to develop future collaborative research links. There will be ample opportunity for graduates and potential future employers to connect.

Preference has been given to joint presentations by industrial sponsors and student/post-doc/academic researchers. This “buddy system” is intended to frame the industrial problem before 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).

Themes will 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

Keynote Speakers

  • Bill McCaffrey (Leeds)
  • John Marshall (Shell)
  • John Walsh (Dublin)
  • Magdalena Scheck-Wenderoth (GFZ Potzdam)
  • Jean Gerrard (Repsol)
  • Steve Flint (Manchester)

Prizes will be awarded for the best oral and poster presentations, which includes the recipients’ attendance at the Petroleum Group’s annual dinner at the Natural History Museum in 2012.
