Popular wettability workshop

The meeting room at NORCE was packed at the wettability workshop they hosted 18 March. The workshop was the kick-off for the IOR NORWAY 2019 conference.

The day before IOR NORWAY, Monday 18 March, NORCE hosted a workshop on wettability. Ying Guo at NORCE initiated the workshop with the theme «Wettability characterization and alteration for heterogeneous carbonate reservoir rocks». 

Below you will find the presentations from the workshop.
