  • Molecular microbiological methods (MMM) and monitoring
  • Produced water treatment
  • Microbial upgrading and microbial enhanced oil recovery (MEOR)
  • Fluid transport and reservoir and biofilm modelling
  • Microbiology of carbon capture and sequestration
  • Microbiology of hydraulic fracturing
  • Innovative technologies and biotechnologies

Who attends this event?

As the effects of microbes in the oil recovery are very widespread and versatile, this event will be of interest to all professionals and students working on issues resulting from the detrimental or beneficial impacts of microbes in oil recovery.

Areas of work or research will include:

  • Microbiology and molecular biology
  • Production chemistry and engineering
  • Geochemistry and geophysics
  • Reservoir engineering
  • Material sciences
  • Computer modelling

The informal nature of this event makes it an excellent networking opportunity with delegates from all over the world representing companies, chemical suppliers, research institutes, universities, consultancies and service companies. Students are also encouraged to participate.
