Subsurface utilization for energy transition

From a previous conference at University of Stavanger.

About the conference

Energy Norway 2022 is a meeting place for subsurface professionals in Norway and international communities, policy makers, regulatory bodies, and students.

In December, University of Stavanger with partners was awarded the National Centre for Sustainable Utilization of Energy Resources on the Norwegian Shelf (NCS2030). The new centre is to be the scientific and technology driver to facilitate an energy-efficient, multi-purpose utilization of the subsurface into a “Sustainable Subsurface Value Chain” to reach the NZE goals on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS). At Energy Norway 2022 you will get scientific presentations linked to the scope of the new centre, namely subsurface energy systems, net-zero emission production, digitalization, and society.

About NCS2030

Transitioning the NCS into the future Sustainable Subsurface Value Chain requires a new way of thinking across disciplines and integration of new offshore industries. The transition time is short; therefore, it is crucial to integrate research, education, collaboration, and innovation to transfer research results into timely applications. Increased understanding of the subsurface for hydrogen and CO2 storage, geothermal energy, in addition to efficient hydrocarbon production, are elements that the centre will focus on to achieve the goal.

The centre is one of the largest research and industry consortia in Norway and includes an expert team of geoscientists, reservoir engineers, modellers, data scientists, economics, among others, that will work together with industry experts. The University of Stavanger (main host) together with NORCE, Institute for Energy Technology (IFE) and University of Bergen, are the main research institutions.

NCS2030 invite PhD and master students with an interest in energy related topics to participate in the poster session at Energy Norway 2022.

Venue: Tjodhallen, University of Stavanger, Stavanger

When: April 25-26, 2022

Energy Norway 2022 poster session

PhD candidates and master students from universities worldwide are invited to submit a poster to be presented at the conference. Poster themes:

  • Energy-efficient and low-emission hydrocarbon production
  • Efficient subsurface utilization
  • Digital subsurface & Digitalization for faster and better decisions
  • CCS/H2 opportunities

Please submit your draft poster in PDF format in an email here before March 15th, 2022 to be considered for the poster session.

All submitted poster drafts will be evaluated based on scientific quality, relevance and themes. Posters that correlate with the conference themes will be prioritized. Confirmation will be issued March 25th 2022, along with presentation guidelines (it is expected that the candidates prepare a 1-minute oral presentation of their poster and participate in the poster sessions at the conference).

Reimbursement of travel costs for PhD students

You may claim reimbursement of moderately priced travel (air ticket, bus, train), accommodation and conference participation fee. No food costs will be reimbursed. The maximum amount for reimbursement is NOK 7500.

Documentation and original receipts confirming all expenses must be enclosed (booking confirmations or invoices are not valid as receipts).
