About the SPE Workshop in Arctic Norway

The SPE Northern Norway Section held the first annual SPE Workshop in Arctic Norway 20-21 March 2013. The aim is to make this the best technical conference for discussing challenges in the Norwegian Arctic Shelf - the Northern part of the Norwegian Sea and the Barents Sea.

Regular topics for this workshop will be petroleum engineering, logistics, political impact, harsh climate and lowering expenses in exploration and field development.

In addition to high quality technical presentations, the SPE Workshop in Arctic Norway shall also give the delegates a flavour of the arctic by taking the delegates on a "Hunting for the Aurora Borealis Event", followed by delicious arctic food served by one of Harstad's top restaurants.
