Sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy topics at Force seminar

Sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy are the topics at the Force seminar Advances in sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy with applications to the Norwegian shelf in Stavanger on 10 and 11 December.

The seminar covers topics that span a broad range, and the interest is considerable:

"Despite our modest marketing efforts, interest has been considerable. This is probably due to the popular topics on the agenda,” says Bjørn Kåre Bryn, geologist in Centrica Energi and one of the people responsible for the programme at this Force seminar.

There are still some spots available, if you are interested you can sign up on Force's website.

The lecturers come from international universities and from the oil companies. John Holbrook from Texas Christian University will present innovations within sequence stratigraphy, while Ron Steel from the University of Austin will talk about Force-inspired studies. Morten Ahlborn and Lars Stemmerik from the University of Copenhagen will present sequence stratigraphy in carbonates.

The lectures from the oil companies cover both clastic and carbonate stratigraphy, with examples that range geographically from the North Sea to the Barents Sea, and with topics that cover both plays, prospects, discoveries and producing fields.

"One lecture is from Complex Flow Design about deterministic modelling of gravitational flows, a lecture based on outcrops on Greenland. Last, but not least, there will be core showings on both days,” says Bryn.

“All the major companies on the Norwegian shelf take part in Force (Forum for reservoir engineering and exploration technology cooperation). The forum is unique in a global context. Force has the ambition to promote possibilities for improved oil recovery and to achieve cooperation across production licences,” says Eva Halland, a geologist in the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate and head of the Force secretariat.

Bjørn Kåre Bryn notes that it is important to exchange experience between the oil companies and facilitate regular lectures and work meetings to enhance the expertise of the petroleum clusters:

“This is a forum where the knowledge environments meet across boundaries – the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate, universities, suppliers and oil companies from Norway and abroad. I have good experiences from taking part in Force.”

He adds that it is important that someone is able to make an effort to organise attractive events – and that the companies are willing to share information and knowledge, insofar as the topics do not affect subjects where there is direct competition between them.

“Force’s existence is based on the service being attractive for the participants, and I think it has been a success so far!” says Bryn.
