On 21-23 March 2013 a second edition of the workshop titled “The role of seismic surveys in search of conventional and unconventional hydrocarbon reservoirs” was held in Wielka Nieszawka near Toruń. The workshop was organized by Geofizyka Torun and held under the honorable patronage of Mr Mirosław Szkałuba, Vice President in charge of Purchasing & IT at PGNIG SA. The main intention of the workshop, whose first edition took place in November 2011, was bringing together geologists and geophysicists in order to exchange knowledge and experience concerning the application of seismic methods in the exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbon deposits. The workshop was attended by representatives of PGNIG and Geofizyka Toruń, as well as special guests: Mr Jeff Reagan, consultant from Beusa Energy, a company engaged in the exploration of crude oil and shale gas in the United States, and representatives of PARADIGM, headed by Mr Duane Dopkin, Vice President, Technology.
The workshop provided a perfect opportunity both, to present innovative solutions for current exploration issues, especially in the exploration of unconventional oil and gas reservoirs, and to discuss and exchange knowledge and ideas among professionals from the geophysical industry. The high professional level of the workshop, interesting presentations, lively discussions among participants and conclusions drawn, have stressed the need for such a meeting platform as a perfect practical support for conducting forthcoming geophysical projects.
