OTD Energy 2023

EN

In 2021, OTD Energy was visited by over 600 students and young employees in the industry. OTD Young is an arena that shows the opportunities for young people in the petroleum industry, the importance of Norwegian petroleum production and what role the industry will play in the energy transition.

At OTD Energy Young, students and young employees are invited to take part in the discussion. Here we plan professional presentations from young employees in the industry who give concrete examples of how the industry is helping to solve today’s climate challenges.

Welcome to OTD Energy Young

A separate area has been set aside for OTD Energy Young in hall C. Here there will be good networking opportunities and a separate stage with professional content. The participants are offered a free lunch from Framo, which is the lunch sponsor at the Young event.
The program will start at 10.00 on the first day of the fair. The program will end at 14.00 with “The decarbonisation Challenge” on the main stage, the Energy Stage. You can see the entire program here.

Presentations from Young Professionals

We invite young employees from the partner companies to give a short presentation about what it is like to work for the company and the segment of the industry they represent. We also encourage the speaker to share their assessments that were made when they were about to enter working life and how they see the future prospects for the industry in which they work.
There will be a total of 10 presentations at OTD Energy.

Presentation lasts 10 minutes. Tips for what the presentation should contain:

  • Must be held by a young professional from the company.
  • This should be a presentation that the speaker could wish someone had given when the speaker was a student.
  • Must have a personal touch.
  • Brief about the company
  • Description of career choice and experience from the company.
  • Opportunities further in the company.
  • Possible technologies from the company within the professional field in which the employee works.
  • Share thoughts about the future of their industry.

Students and young professionals will receive several inspiring presentations where young professionals share their thoughts and experiences from their work. On day 1 for “The Decarbonisation Challenge”, we invite top managers from the industry to an honest debate together with the students and young employees in the industry.

Young event during Energyshow

On Wednesday evening students, young employees and the participating companies are invited to a social networking event during the Energyshow in DNBArena. Here we will set aside the restaurant on the third floor for the OTD Young participants. Up to 150 participants are expected at this part of the Energyshow. A total of 2,000 professional will attend the Energyshow.

How can I participate?

The students are invited to the Energyshow by the student committee or by the partnering companies.

The partnering companies will be awarded 5 tickets to the Energyshow as part of the sponsorship packages. Contact your company to get tickets.

Young award

The OTD Young award goes to the company or person who has been most visible or done the most for the students in the current year. The selection is made by the students themselves and the prize is awarded in front of 2,000 professionals during the Energyshow. The prize will be an art print from local Stavanger artist Kristoffer Ask Hansen.

Young New Tech

Fully autonomous drilling on a small laboratory scale drill

Discusses the challenges in approaching more autonomous drilling. Can we achieve safer and more efficient drilling in a closed loop systems with built in “contingency events” based on experience.

Drillbotics Team, UiS

Net-zero emission production - Tight reservoirs solutions

Better understanding of tight reservoirs properties, their phases and interactions will identify if water-based EOR methods improve oil recovery in such reservoirs or if this fluid can be used as a stimulation fluid. The research will also help to model low permeability reservoir systems more accurately.

The current presentation will discuss the first steps that were made for learning the diatomite reservoirs and their features.

Veronika Abdulina, 
PhD Research Fellow Department of Energy Resources, UiS

Assessing the geochemical interaction of storing bed minerals with carbonated water for CCS projects

The greenhouse effect, which causes global warming and climate change, is facilitated by the discharge of carbon dioxide into the earth’s atmosphere. To reduce emission impacts, CO2 can be injected into underground storage locations such as depleted oil and gas reservoirs or saline aquifers. Injected CO2 can interact with the formation water and rock minerals leading to various geochemical alterations that must be screened to improve the understanding of in-situ mineralization mechanisms as well as numerical models for large-scale simulations.

Mahmood Fani, 
PhD Research Fellow, UiS

Physics Informed Artificial Intelligence (AI): History Matching of Interpretation of Laboratory Experiments related to Subsurface Energy Systems

Efficiently evaluating complex laboratory experiments is crucial for understanding fluid behavior in underground processes like CO2 storage and improved oil recovery. In this presentation, we will demonstrate our utilization of Physics-informed Neural Networks for conducting history matching of experiments, while including different types of information and varying data qualities.

OTD Energy Young event at the Energyshow

On Wednesday evening students, young employees and the participating companies are invited to a social networking event during the Energyshow in DNBArena.

Both operators and suppliers are dependent on attracting skilled and qualified employees to maintain and develop their business. By being visible to students, the companies can attract interest and attention from potential candidates who can contribute to their growth and success in the future.

Being visible to students and young employees gives operators and suppliers an opportunity to market themselves and build a positive reputation among the next generation of professionals. It can create awareness of the company’s values, commitment to sustainable practices and career opportunities. This can be particularly important at a time when many students are looking for employers who take social responsibility and have a positive impact.

The players in the industry face ever-increasing demands for sustainability, energy efficiency and environmentally friendly solutions. By being visible to students, companies can gain access to new ideas, perspectives and technologies. Students often bring fresh and innovative approaches to problem solving, and their participation can help stimulate innovation and drive the industry forward.

Being visible to students gives operators and suppliers the opportunity to establish and develop a strong network with future professionals. By participating in OTD Energy Young, the companies can build relationships with students who can later become colleagues, customers, suppliers or partners. A strong network can be invaluable when it comes to accessing talent and creating synergies in the industry.

Operators and suppliers have valuable knowledge and experience that can be shared with students. For companies that have internships, trainee programs and mentoring schemes, OTD Energy will be an effective arena to reinforce awareness of these initiatives. This helps to build competence and prepare students for future roles in the industry.
