Dear Colleagues, Chemists, Scientists, Engineers and Students,
Due to the Covid-19 and travel restrictions the conference in 2020 and 2021 changed to an online conference. Although this was a successful platform for innovators to present their findings, we plan for a physical conference in Geilo in March 2022.
The format of the conference is known as a vital forum where not only technical papers are presented, but also the informal discussions, networking and small talks.
The conference venue is Vestlia Resort in Geilo, between Bergen and Oslo The conference will run from Tuesday night to Friday mid-morning to allow easier traveling and flight connections.
A short course is again planned for the Tuesday and details will be provided later following selection of papers.
As the chair of the 2022 program committee I would like to encourage you to submit abstractsfor the technical program and be a part of our 33rd conference.
Sharing of knowledge
Production chemistry continues to challenge our industry and this will continue to require new and innovative solutions for the years and decades to come.
Since the first symposium, now 33 years ago, we have been a forum for such innovation, allowing researchers, scientists, engineers, students and operators the opportunity to share their experiences in an open and constructive way, build on ideas from others and develop a range of solutions to the ever-changing oilfield production chemical challenges. To improve operational efficiency, while preventing and minimising any potential negative impacts on the environment it is key that innovation and multi-disciplinary approaches are brought to the forefront to both existing and new production chemistry challenges.
The aim of this symposium is to facilitate the sharing of such knowledge and experience’s in solving oilfield chemistry challenges.
Program in process
The abstract submission deadline is due and the technical committee is now reviewing all abstracts and will conconclude ultimo November
The wide range and quality of the submitted abstracts leaves us confident that we will have another great program for this unique forum in Geilo
It is imperative that researchers and operators have continual interaction and integration, including different disciplines and industry sectors and this conference is a forum where such interaction take place
We are aware that new and alternative energy sources can bring with them chemistry related challenges, not dissimilar to those in the oil and gas production and we think it is time to discuss the use of chemicals in industries supporting the drive towards carbon neutral, such as CCUS (carbon capture and underground storage) and geothermal etc.
We hope to see you and your fellow collegues in Geilo for fruitful discussions of the future.
