[] Director General Bente Nyland says that the people who work on the Oseberg subsurface team are worthy recipients of the IOR prize.
“Thorough technical work enables good and profitable decisions. The work, particularly regarding reservoir aspects, and the expert recommendations we have seen ever since the field started producing and up to the present, are characterised by a long-term mindset, not a desire for short-term rewards,” says Nyland to
“We want to give credit to the experts who have contributed to making gas injection on Oseberg a success story. They have really made it happen! We hope that this will inspire continued solid technical work on the Norwegian shelf along with even more good, and sometimes audacious, decisions,” Nyland continues.

"We are proud and delighted to be awarded this prize, which has been given in recognition of Oseberg's long tradition of responsible resource management and commercial operations. There is a great willingness in our organisation to continue this good work. Last year we managed to replace our production volume by new reserves in the Oseberg area. That is proof of perseverance in an area where we have producing for more than 20 years," says Carl Frederik Eek-Jensen, head of petroleum technology in the Oseberg organisation to
SPE Bergen congratulates all our members in the Oseberg subsurface environment and the general upstream community in Bergen with this high-hanging award and join in the admiration of solid subsurface efforts through many years.
Well done!
