YP session on ODS
20. February 2011
This years YP session on the One Day Seminar will put focus on unexplored areas of the NCS in general, and on the disputed areas around Lofoten Vesterålen in particular
The SPE Bergen Young Professionals programme is the most important arena for networking and learning amongst Young Professionals in the Bergen region. At the annual One Day Seminar, the programme hosts a session dedicated to professionals of the oil & gas industry having less than 10 years of experience (session is part of the conference programme, and open for all to attend).
The Norwegian petroleum industry’s contribution to the government budget is set to fall by NOK 58 billion from 2010 to 2015. To slow down that decline, new and attractive exploration acreage must be made available. This is a matter of urgency because of the long time lag between exploration and production (OLF)
This years YP session will focus on unexplored areas of the NCS, and in particular the disputed areas around Lofoten/Vesterålen. The aim of the session is to provide participants with knowledge and understanding of the challenges and opportunities that may exist in the opening of the disputed areas. The session will cover resource estimates, area-specific challenges pertaining to the unopened blocks and the socio-economic effects that follow an opening of these areas.
We are happy to present three heavy-weighters on this topic as our speakers for this session:
Finn Roar Aamodt is senior advisor on northern areas in Statoil. He has previosly held positions such as exploration director in NPD and chair of the Norwegian Oil Industry Association (OLF). Sveinung Fjose is partner and senior analyst in Menon. Sissel Eriksen is the NPD's director for exploration.
The YP session will be session 2 in the Peer Gynt room.
Presentation titles and details are available in the conference programme.
