Local sponsors of the Oslo section:



Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Season 2014-2015 has been very exciting and packed for Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Oslo section so far. We had a great meeting with Norwegian Patent Registration Office on October 15th. The meeting was very informative and provided a very good insight on patent registration process and on protecting intellectual property. The officers in Patent Registration Office were also very kind to provide detailed and in-depth knowledge to the individuals with specific questions through small group discussions. The presentation materials can be available to the members through SPE Oslo contacts.

SPE Oslo Young Professionals season 2014-2015 was officially kicked-off on October 16th in Solli Scandic Hotel. This season SPE Oslo Young Professional Kick-off was in partnership with DNV GL and Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies. The event included three technical and very interesting presentations from Aker Solution, DNV GL, and Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies. The kick-off event was very well received with 70 young professional participants.

The first lecture of “SPE Distinguished Lecturer Series 2014-2015” was held on November 4th in a lunch meeting at AGR Petroleum Services’ office. SPE Oslo had the pleasure of inviting Mohsen Achour who is leading the “Corrosion, Inspection and Materials” group within “Global Production Excellence” division of ConocoPhillips in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The title of the lecture was “The Science and Engineering of Internal Corrosion Control in the Upstream Petroleum Industry”.

I would also like to inform you that SPE Oslo in partnership with FORCE is organizing a workshop on “Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery (MEOR): From Theory to Field Implementation” on November 18th, 2014 in Stavanger, Norway. The workshop will also cover “Tracer Technology” to monitor and optimize Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) processes. FORCE is a co-operating forum for Improved Oil and Gas Recovery (IOGR) and Improved Exploration (IE) conducted by oil and gas companies and authorities in Norway. Through the partnership with SPE Oslo and FORCE, SPE Oslo members can sign up for this upcoming MEOR workshop at FORCE member fee.

Finally, I would like to invite you to join us in the upcoming traditional Christmas Technical Dinner to be held on December 2nd in Hotel Continental. The evening will start with a technical presentation followed by a lovely dinner.

Looking forwards to seeing you,

 Jafar Fathi, PhD

SPE Oslo Chairman 2014-2016
