The Exploration Innovation Prize is awarded a license group, company, team or person who during the last two years have given a courageous and innovative contribution in exploration for oil and gas on the Norwagian continental shelf.

The recipient has matured and drilled a prospect that can be defined as high risk and high potential.

The prospect must have been drilled, but can be classified as dry, technical discovery or commercial discovery.

10 candidates has been selected:

11 discoveries were made in 2017, while there were 13 discoveries the year before. A majority should be considered technical and marginal discoveries. Many discoveries can be classified as “near field”.

During this years conference we will review dry wells, presumed technical discoveries and possible/likely commercial discoveries. The purpose is to take advantage of new knowledge in order to increase the gradient of the learning curve.

NCS Exploration will take place May 23rd - 24th at Scandic Fornebu, a cooparation between Geo Publishing and Geological Society of Norway.

Preliminary program are ready, and will be updated regularly.
