Aberdeen hosts the Energy Geoscience Conference

Aberdeen hosts the Energy Geoscience Conference

Scientists will converge on the P&J Live in Aberdeen this week for the Energy Geoscience Conference.

The event, which is organised by the Geoscience Energy Society of Great Britain and the Geological Society and supported by the Centre for Energy Transition at the University of Aberdeen, will focus on the important contribution of geosciences to the transition to low-carbon energy. 

The programme features several presentations from researchers in the School of Geosciences including:

  • Dr Rachel Brackenridge - Zechstein stratigraphy and facies variability in the Forth Approaches Basin, UKCS: Implications for salt cavern storage
  • Alice Hall (PhD Candidate) - Gas Exploration Potential in the Northern Faraoe- Shetland Basin, UK Atlantic Margin: Aiding the UK Net Zero 2050 Strategy
  • Professor David Healy - Quantifying fault stability for the energy transition
  • Professor Andrew Hurst - Sand Injectites: a developing hydrocarbon play and more…
  • Heather Kennedy (PhD Candidate) - Numerical investigation of surface wave anisotropy for fault characterisation in geothermal fields
  • Professor Nick Schofield - 50 years of Petroleum Exploration within the Faroe-Shetland Basin: the past, present and future of a frontier basin
  • Professor John Underhill, Director of the Centre for Energy Transition and Lead Convenor of the conference - Role of Play Based Exploration (PBE) Methods in the search for, and critical evaluation of, safe subsurface carbon stores
  • Rifky Wijanarko (PhD Candidate) - The Geological Evaluation of Low Carbon Energy Solutions in North-East England (poster presentation)

Aberdeen was chosen to launch this new series of conferences because of its “world-leading role in the energy sector and vision to lead the world towards net zero”.
