The RMF is an annual 2-day conference, which is an excellent multi-disciplinary platform to present, share and discuss your experiences in the area of Reservoir Microbiology relevant to oil recovery. Contributions can be in the form of results from scientific research projects or case studies. This event which aims to link academia with industry is hosted and organised by the Energy Institute.
The Reservoir Microbiology Forum 2013 will take place on Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 November at the Energy Institute, 61 New Cavendish Street, London W1G 7AR, UK.
Deadline for abstract submission: 24 May 2013
Who should attend?
As the effects of microbes in the oil recovery industry are very widespread and versatile, this event will be of interest to all professionals working on issues due to the detrimental or beneficial impact of microbes in the oil recovery. The target audience includes professionals from industry and academia in:
• Microbiology and molecular biology
• Production chemistry and engineering
• Geochemistry and geophysics
• Reservoir engineering
• Material sciences
• Computer modeling
The informal nature of the event makes it an excellent networking opportunity with delegates from all over the world representing operating companies, chemical suppliers,research institutes, universities, consultancies and service companies. Students are also encouraged to participate in the event.
There are opportunities to distribute material at the event.
