OG21 is Norway's national oil and gas strategy. At the OG21-forum high level technology decision makers in the petroleum industry meet to discuss the continued importance of technology and innovation to value creation in Norway and on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

For the students at The National IOR Centre of Norway this forum has become an important place to meet possible collaborators from the industry. This year it was PhD student Mehul Vora's time to present on behalf of the IOR Centre and University of Stavanger.

The theme for this year's OG21-forum was: «How can technology make our projects faster, with lower costs and reduced emissions?» Mehul Vora presented: «Faster / Affordable / Cleaner - Technology for higher productivity and lower emissions: Improved Oil Recovery (IOR) by Smart Water.»

In Vora's PhD project, the purpose is to develop and implement risk analysis methods and models in support of the IOR Centre efforts to assess and evaluate overall environmental impacts and risks associated with different IOR solutions resulting from the IOR Centre research activities. The IOR solution presented at OG21 was Smart Water.

The other presenters in the student session were

  • Brage Strand Kristoffersen, NTNU
  • Zachary Alcorn, UiB
  • Fredrik Wesenlund, UiT
