Norwegian Petroleum Museum

This free half day conference at the Norwegian Petroleum Museum, Stavanger, presents new technology which will help you reduce the hassle and risk of monitoring reservoirs which are in production.

You can learn about developments with in-well fibre optics, wireless seismic receivers on land and seabed for monitoring reservoirs in production, permanent fibre seismic recordong in the seabed, and assessing rock property changes during production.

This event is designed for geophysicists, geologists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers, well integrity managers and production engineers. Produced and chaired by David Bamford, a past head of geophysics at BP and head of BP Norway.

Limited places - register now to secure yours.

Topics include

Advances in what you can do with in-well fibre optics (understand flow, spot leaks);

Using wireless seismic receivers ("nodes") on both seabed and land,

Permanent fibre seismic recording on the seabed with reduced costs,

Understanding how rock properties are changing as the reservoir is produced.

9:30 David Bamford - Director
Finding Petroleum
Welcome & Introduction

David Bamford is 63. He is a non-executive director at Tullow Oil plc and has various roles with Parkmead Group plc, PARAS Ltd and New Eyes Exploration Ltd, and runs his own consultancy. He writes regular articles for OilVoice and ROGTEC and is a co-founder of Finding Petroleum.

He retired from BP in 2003, after a 23 year career spent initially in research & technology, then the geophysics function, business unit leadership, and finally BP's global exploration programme.

Finding Petroleum
Finding Petroleum was established to help the oil and gas industry network, and stay up to date on the latest technological developments. It does this via hosting regular events, distributing their colour magazine - Digital Energy Journal, and with an online social network of nearly 700 members.
