Invitation to IOR 2019
On behalf of EAGE and the IOR Scientific Committee, we would like to invite you for the 20th European Improved Oil Recovery Symposium, which will be held in Pau, France from 8 - 11 April 2019. The theme of this conference will be "IOR: maximising the opportunities, minimising the costs", reflecting our industry's continuing focus on cost control in the current era of modest oil prices whilst recognising that, form many mature fields, the window of opportunity for deploying IOR is closing and for new fields deploying IOR immediately maximises the benefit.
Pau is home to Total's technology and research centre, the "Centre Scientifique et Technique Jean Féger"and the University of Pau's CHLOE (Centre Huile Lourde Ouvert et Expérimental) heavy oil research centre. The leading universities of Toulouse and Bordeaux are a train ride away. The township itself has been said to have 'the world's most beautiful view of the Earth' (Alphonse de lamartine) looking out towards the pyrenees. All these factors combine to make Pau the right venue for our conference.
IOR 2019 provides a meeting place for engineers, academics, scientists and students to present recent advances in IOR and brainstorm new ideas to improve IOR in the future.
