As a continuation of the very first SPE Workshop to be arranged by SPE Northern Norway, we are happy to invite you to the 2014 SPE Workshop in Arctic Norway.

As opposed to the previous workshop, it is decided to focus on geographical region; the Barents Sea. The main object will be to look at the special challenges encountered in the Barents Sea which are different from other places on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. This will range from logistics, climate and political impact to very specific petroleum engineering subjects:

  • Reservoir Drainage Strategy and Reservoir Management
  • Drilling & Well, Subsea and Hardware

In addition to the workshop, there will be time to enjoy the spectacular nature and the blue light that is so special at this time of year. Wednesday evening, all delegates are invited to the Hunting for the Aurora Borealis event.

Harstad, the oil industry capital in Northern Norway, is located north of the Lofoten Islands surrounded by mountains and sea. Several oil- and service companies are settled in Harstad, representing the full value chain from exploration and field development to operations. Statoil is the major operator. However, companies like Det norske, Total and Lundin are also present. In addition, the Norwegian authorities are represented by a branch of the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate.
