EOR Technologies
Wednesday 17th March 2010 – Renaissance Amsterdam Hotel, Amsterdam




Enhanced Oil Recovery Technologies are attracting considerable attention, with specific focus on emerging
techniques such as surfactant and polymer injection, Microbial EOR, steam injection and air and miscible gas
combustion. ITF is hosting this workshop to promote industry wide debate on the technology issues surrounding
the EOR Technologies.

Tight and Shale Gas, Coal Bed Methane
Thursday 18th March 2010 – Renaissance Amsterdam Hotel, Amsterdam




Tight gas, shale gas and coal bed methane are often referred to as ‘unconventional gas resources’ and
represent a significant, but yet under-developed global resource. ITF is hosting this workshop to promote
industry-wide debate on the technology issues surrounding the development of unconventional gas resources.



                                                              By bringing together a number of the industry’s major
