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.
Call for abstract
In addition to production optimisation and cost reductions the industry needs to adapt to the current environmental movement and reduce it’s CO2 footprint, as well as minimise chemical usage and oil discharge.
It is imperative that researchers and operators have continual interaction and integration, including different disciplines and industry sectors.
We are also 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 welcome therefore welcome abstracts from our colleagues applying their oilfield chemistry experience to those chemical related challenges in industries supporting the drive towards carbon neutral, such as CCUS (carbon capture and underground storage) and geothermal etc.
We do encourage personnel from academia and industry sectors such as operators, consultancy, manufacturing, service, chemical supply to submit abstracts.
