Developing research capacity and creating research networks

13:30 - 14:30

Research, particularly in the field of geology and geoscience, is one of the first and most vital parts of developing operations in previously unexplored locations. Research capacity in Latin America, is lagging behind that of its North American counterparts. As well as simply highlighting reservoir formations, there needs to be significant research into enhanced recovery to raise oil recovery rates in line with those on the other side of the Rio Grande.

This session will look at partnerships for research, bringing together academic institutions, governments and industry. It is key that these groups identify gaps in the field of knowledge so that research can drive the progression of our industry. Our panel will include the likes of SENER and EGI who will discuss strategies for developing research capacity and networks in the Americas.
