The participants was split into groups to discuss topics relevant for the last two years of teh Centre's lifetime:

  • Input to 2020 workplan, and for the final deliveries in remaining IOR Centre lifetime
  • Link to our societal challenges - UN's Sustainable Development Goals
  • When discussing with journlists, politicians and "man in the street" about your work: What is the future of our industry?

Climate friendly IOR?

In the third theme (the future of the industry), the groups also discussed how our work can contribute to reduce the emission causing climate change. This is some of the answers:

  • Join forces to recover more efficiently (with minimum environmental impact)
  • Smarter solutions; reduce water production, cost efficient, energy efficient​
  • CO2-EOR
