The purpose of the European Oil and Gas Conference was to cover multidisciplinary aspects of research and technological development in hydrocarbon discovery and exploitation. The areas covered by the conference were information processing, geosciences, mechanics and new materials, gas conversion and operations. Information processing is fundamental to exploration technology and is featured as one of the larger sessions, with papers extending from the use of seismic velocity anomalies to the development of a hydrocarbon potential forecasting system. The geosciences session ranged from the numerical modelling of sedimentary basins to uncertainty reduction in gas reservoir sizing. The mechanics and new materials session ranged in scope from drilling systems through hostile well completions to unmanned platforms. The rise in resource importance of remote gas accumulations was acknowledged with a session on the conversion of natural gas to liquids. The operations session primarily featured environmental and safety issues.
