Welcome to NCS Exploration 2017

Recent Advances in Exploration Technology

De-risking Gone Wrong? How to Increase Commercial Success Rates.

The backdrop for this conference is that few commercial discoveries are made despite many technical discoveries. Is this due to an exploration toolbox that is not sufficient for the proper de-risking of prospects?

The objective is therefore to investigate the effectiveness of both geophysical and geochemical technologies by analysing various case studies.



Session 1: Introduction

Session 2: The geophysical toolbox

Session 3: The geochemical toolbox

Session 4: De-risking – from the inside

Session 5: Case studies – Learning from de-risking in practice

Session 6: Case studies – Learning from de-risking in practice
