Awards to young UiS presenters at international conferences

Charlotte Botter has received an award by the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) for the Best Young Presenter at the fourth international conference on Fault and Top Seals, Almería, Spain. M.Sc. Luis Alberto Rojo won the best poster award an earlier EAGE event in Madrid, where also three other UiS students were awarded for their posters.

Charlotte Botter's presentation entitled “The effect of fluid flow in relay ramps on seismic images” with Cardozo, Lecomte, Rotevatn and Paton as coauthors was delivered to more than 100 attendees to the conference. In this presentation, Charlotte described the impact of faulting and fluid flow on seismic images of a relay ramp, using an integrated workflow from an outcrop model in Utah to fluid-flow simulation and finally to 4D seismic.

Charlotte is in the fourth year of her Ph.D, which has included one year teaching, at the Department of Petroleum Engineering. Her Ph.D. project “Seismic imaging of fault zones” is funded by the Research Council of Norway (NFR). Her supervisor is Nestor Cardozo (University of Stavanger) in collaboration with Isabelle Lecomte (NORSAR), Stuart Hardy (University of Barcelona), Gay Paton (ffA, UK) and Alejandro Escalona (University of Stavanger). Charlotte has published one paper, submitted a second one, and she is currently working on her third publication.

This is the second time this year that a young presenter from the University of Stavanger is awarded by EAGE, which is a worldwide association with 18,000 members (http://www.eage.org/).

In June, the Petroleum Geosciences Engineering Master student Luis Alberto Rojo was awarded the Best Student Paper Prize at the 77th Conference & Exhibition of EAGE in Madrid. These two awards confirm that the Geoscience program at the University of Stavanger is internationally competitive in research as well as in outreach.

Last week, at 3P AAPG Arctic in Stavanger three UiS students won best poster prices. These were Luis Alberto Rojo, Isabel Rodriguez and Dora Luz Marin with first, second and third place, respectively.
