Comparisons, Contrasts and Collaborations 

Can additional high value barrels be discovered through improved collaboration between UK and Norway?

The objective of the conference is to enhance technical understanding of the status of key plays on each side of the border, to establish points of similarity and difference in both activity and success, and to highlight new opportunities. Important recent discoveries on either side of the border will be examined and the conference will seek to establish where new plays in one country have not yet been understood or exploited across the border.

Key note presentations will be made by leading figures from both Norway and UK.

This two day international conference will bring together explorationists from UK, Norway and other European countries with the following themes:

  • Play opening discoveries as yet unexploited cross border
  • Examples of specific play knowledge being exploited cross border
  • How to build a geology-without-borders view
  • Differences in exploration performance
  • Impact of regulatory and fiscal frameworks
  • Differences in how competence is organised and technology adopted
  • Challenges on median line including data continuity and differences in nomenclature
  • Issues for service industry
  • Danish and Dutch (and other) cross border examples
