Oil Field Chemistry Symposium 2023

Short Course

Energy transition and the role of production chemistry

Limited number of delegates is 30

Chair: Gill Ross, Harbour Energy, UK
Time: 14 March 2023, 14:30 - 19:00
Venue: Vestlia Resort , Geilo, Norway
Fee: NOK 2100,- 

With the increasing focus on the environment and the trends to reduce CO2 footprint in the industry Tekna wish to embrace the emerging areas within the energy transition which are similar to their own and have an overlap with production chemistry.  Therefore the focus of this year’s short course will be on the role of production chemistry related to Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR), Geothermal and Carbon Capture Utilisation and Shut In (CCUS).

The course schedule is detailed below and their will be five presentations on relevant topics with an additional panel debate including all of the presenters and the audience to discuss how production chemistry can help the energy transition.
