Reservoir Microbiology Forum 2021: Open for abstracts

Reservoir Microbiology Forum 2021

The RMF is an excellent multi-disciplinary platform which brings together oil producers, scientists, technologists, engineers, academics, and researchers from around the world to present, share and discuss the widespread and versatile effects of microbes in oil reservoirs. This year’s event will take place online from 10 – 11 November. 

Now open for abstracts: entry deadline 2 July 2021

Abstract topics:

  • General Subsurface Microbiology
  • Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (fundamentals, mitigation strategies, modelling, and prediction)
  • Reservoir Souring (fundamentals, mitigation strategies, modelling, and prediction)
  • Microbial Control (fundamentals, mitigation strategies, modelling, and prediction)
  • Microbial and Chemical Monitoring
  • Produced Water Management
  • Microbial Enhanced Oil Recovery and Microbial Upgrading
  • Reservoir, Fluid and Biofilm Modelling
  • Microbiology of Hydraulic Fracturing
  • Microbiological aspects of Hydrogen and CO2 Transport and Storage
  • Emerging Technologies – new category

About RMF

 

This event is run by the Energy Institute (EI) with the support of a small working group within the EI’s Microbiology Committee. The current RMF working group members are:

  • Dr Anthony Mitchell, Equinor
  • Dr Bart Lomans, Shell Global Solutions International
  • Dr Carol Devine MEI, ICR Integrity
  • Dr Kenneth Wunch, DuPont
  • Professor Ian M. Head, Newcastle University
  • Dr Lisa Gieg, University of Calgary
  • Dr Paul Evans, Chevron
  • Laura Machuca Suarez, Curtin Corrosion Centre

Who attends?

 

As the effects of microbes in 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. The new online format will provide plenty of opportunities to interact with speakers and delegates, provide question and answer sessions, and access to written materials.
