The Petroleum Geology of Northwest Europe Conference, organised jointly by the Geological Society of London, the Petroleum Exploration Society of Great Britain (PESGB) and the Energy Institute (EI) will mark a major milestone: 50 years since the first UK North Sea discovery of the West Sole gas field. The event will cover the North Sea and surrounding onshore areas, as well as exploration frontiers in the North Atlantic and the Barents Sea. The conference technical sessions will comprise invited keynote speakers, selected papers and posters. The central theme “50 years of learning – a platform for present value and future success”, will lead the conference sessions which will focus on four areas: Standing on the shoulders of giants – what we have learned from past successes?, Finding and developing more oil and gas in both mature basins and new plays, Optimising recovery – extending the life of existing fields and re-developing old fields, Future – what is still not understood?, In particular, emphasis will be given to crafting and selecting talks to transfer learning from the past 50 years of the North Sea to younger generations of geologists and geophysicists., In the same spirit of providing an opportunity to learn from the past the event will feature a dedicated presentation of classic core material from a wide range of fields and discoveries..
