After three decades of research and hydrocarbon exploration in the Nordkapp Basin (Norwegian Barents Sea), the dynamics of Mesozoic salt mobilization is still poorly understood. Both progradational loading and basement-involved extension have been proposed as triggers of salt mobilization, where the latter is most accepted.

Thermal conductivity is a major influencing factor on subsurface conductive heat transport and resulting temperature distribution, which in turn is a key parameter in basin modeling. Basin modeling studies commonly use representative literature values of thermal conductivity despite their impact on modeling results.

During these times of global economic uncertainty, political turmoil and climate change discussions, some, both inside and outside the energy industry, question the value of investing in oil and gas exploration. At the same time, new discoveries, technological advances and collaborative partnerships make exploration more exciting than ever. ExxonMobil Exploration Company President Stephen Greenlee addressed these parallel perspectives during “The Future of Oil and Gas Exploration,” the annual Michel T. Halbouty Lecture he delivered at the AAPG Annual Convention and Exhibition in San Antonio in May.

When this year’s Michel T. Halbouty Outstanding Leadership Award winner Bernard Christian Duval was younger, he dreamed of becoming a pilot – preferably a fighter pilot, but then discovered he was colorblind; thus, he had to give up his first love. His second love worked out all right, though. Duval, who started his career in 1968 and spent most of it at Total, discovered geology during a summer internship in Morocco, and while he soon realized that geologists, too, need to see color, he discovered there are ways to compensate, to adjust, to find other ways around the obstacles – an adaptation that has served him well throughout his career.

“The Norwegian continental shelf may historically be described as a giant offshore technology laboratory.” That’s Jon Are Rørtveit, vice president and commercial director of the Offshore Northern Seas Foundation, talking about the unique dynamic and possibilities to be found off the Norwegian continental shelf. Norway’s offshore exploration industry is well-established as an international exporter of smart technologies and innovative solutions.

Where are the best opportunities in the future for exploration investment? The central question about where to look, where to drill, which area of the world holds the greatest promise, in terms of profits, the rule going forward may very well be: “When you go low, you go high.”
