The best of Petroleum Geoscience collection

Fri 13 July 2018

Category: Community, Education, Geology, Geophysics, Outreach, Reviews

 This collection comprises 8 papers recently published in Petroleum Geoscience and presented in a dedicated session at the 80th EAGE Conference & Exhibition 2018, Copenhagen. Petroleum Geoscience provides a multidisciplinary outlet for the publication needs of those involved in the science and technology of the rock-related sub-surface disciplines. Published by both the Geological Society of London and EAGE, the journal aims to share knowledge of reservoir geoscience and to reflect the international nature of its development. It welcomes a range of papers on all petroleum and sub-surface geoenergy systems reporting understandings and transferable knowledge in the detection, characterization, exploitation and monitoring of resources and reserves.


Congratulations to Erick Alvarez, Colin MacBeth and Jonathan Brain who were winners of the Norman Falcon Award 2018 for their paper ‘Quantifying remaining oil saturation using time-lapse seismic amplitude changes at fluid contacts’ published in Petroleum Geoscience. The paper has been included in this collection below.
