Full Agenda

Wednesday, June 13, 2012
Norwegian Petroleum Museum

This free half day conference at the Norwegian Petroleum Museum, Stavanger, presents new technology which will help you reduce the hassle and risk of monitoring reservoirs which are in production.

You can learn about developments with in-well fibre optics, wireless seismic receivers on land and seabed for monitoring reservoirs in production, permanent fibre seismic recordong in the seabed, and assessing rock property changes during production.

This event is designed for geophysicists, geologists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers, well integrity managers and production engineers. Produced and chaired by David Bamford, a past head of geophysics at BP and head of BP Norway.

Limited places - register now to secure yours.

Topics include

Advances in what you can do with in-well fibre optics (understand flow, spot leaks);

Using wireless seismic receivers ("nodes") on both seabed and land,

Permanent fibre seismic recording on the seabed with reduced costs,

Understanding how rock properties are changing as the reservoir is produced.

Welcome & Introduction

David Bamford is well known around the oil & gas industry both as an explorer and a geophysicist. He holds a Physics degree from the University of Bristol and a Ph.D in Geological Sciences from the University of Birmingham.

Since 2004, he has been a non-executive director at Tullow Oil plc, being recruited for this position especially for his exploration knowledge. He serves on the Nominations and Remuneration Committees, and was chairman of the latter, and Senior Independent Director, for 3 years prior to his retire from the board at the end of April 2014.

He was on the board of Premier Oil from May 2014 to May 2016.

He retired from BP plc in 2003, his last four positions being Chief Geophysicist (1990-1995), Business Unit Leader (General Manager) for first West Africa and then Norway (1995-1999), and finally Head of Exploration until 2003.

He has served on the boards of Paras Ltd, a small exploration and IS/IT consulting company in which he held 22% equity, until its sale to RPS Energy in 2008 and Welltec a/s, a Danish well engineering company, as the nominee of the private equity investor Riverside.

From 2012 to 201 he was on the board of ASX-quoted Australia Oriental Energy as a non-executive director.

He was a founder of Richmond Energy Partners, a small oil & gas research house, and several media companies that focus on the oil & gas sector, and has served as an advisor to Alliance Bernstein, Opus Executive, the Parkmead Group plc, and Kimmeridge Energy LLP. Since retiring from BP, he has undertaken asset and company valuation projects for investment banks, hedge funds and small oil companies.
