OIl director Bente Nyland is one of the speakers at the Hydrocarbon Habitat seminar in Stavanger this week.

Free lunch (and talks)

On Wednesday this week, in Stavanger, the entire G&G community is invited to discuss the future of the Norwegian oil industry. Exploration included.

The backdrop is this:

  • While both 2016 and 2017 proved few commercial discoveries, we can end up with a record number of wildcats in 2018 that is higher than ever. There is certainly no doubt that there is stil a strong belief in the NCS hydrocarbon potential.
  • At the same time, many claim that the world can manage without Norwegian oil and gas, and that the emergence of renewable resources makes it unnecessary for Norway to continue exploring for new resources.

We have invited two highly competent professionals to shed some light on this issue: Karl Eirik Schjøtt-Pedersen (Norsk olje og gass) og Bente Nyland (Norwegian Petroleum Directorate).

Moreover, seasoned geologist Dag Bergslien, with a long career in Esso, is coming to share an interesting and educational story about the discovery of the Balder field.

Also, veteran geophysicist Svein Ellingsrud will share his view on “the where and how of the remaining hydrocarbon resources on the NCS”.
