The GRSG Opens Call for Papers: Oil and Gas Workshop

The Geological Remote Sensing Group (GRSG) has opened its call for papers to be considered for their forthcoming Oil and Gas Workshop, which will be held in Boulder, Colorado on 11th and 12th July 2018.

The workshop, run in collaboration with the US Geological Survey and the University of Colorado, will focus on how remote sensing is being used within both the oil and gas companies and associated research organisations to provide real and new benefits across the industry.

The workshop organising committee is seeking contributions from industry professionals, suppliers and vendors, academics and government officials who have used new remote sensing sensors, data and / or techniques to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of oil and gas exploration and production.

These projects may include, but are not limited to:

  • Exploration and appraisal of O&G resources
  • Planning and development of O&G assets
  • Operations and productions phase including surveillance and environmental monitoring
  • Metocean applications
  • Emergency and oil spill response
  • Decommissioning and rehabilitation of O&G assets
  • New sensors, data analytics workflow, and machine learning techniques

GRSG Chairman, Charlotte Bishop explains why her group has set up the workshop and what she and her committee hope to achieve by doing so; “This workshop is being spearheaded by our International Liaison for North America, Christian Haselwimmer. I know that Christian and his organising committee will ensure that this is a fantastic opportunity for everyone in the region to promote their use of remote sensing data for geological applications. Events like this are not always easy to find but there is a real appetite for them. 

I know I speak for the entire GRSG committee when I say that we are delighted to be able to offer this North American-based workshop in our ever-expanding GRSG Calendar and I feel sure it will increase both interest and engagement with the work of GRSG, throughout both North and South America.”

Authors who wish to present at the workshop are requested to submit an abstract (max 250 words) before 1st May 2018:
