About Memoir 52

Geological Society Memoir 52 records the extraordinary 50+ year journey that has led to the development of some 458 oil and gas fields on the UK Continental Shelf. It follows the 1991 and 2003 memoirs and is the largest of the series, containing papers on around 150 fields both on and offshore.

Memoir 52 is a major, landmark volume that will be an enduring data source for those exploring for, developing and producing hydrocarbons and sequestering CO2 on the UKCS in the coming decades.

About the conference

This conference marks the planned publication of Memoir 52 in Q2 2020. 16 invited speakers will talk about fields which are discussed in the Memoir, with talks covering all of the major UK basins and highlighting the Memoir's running themes.

These themes include the utility of seismic data across the value chain, evolution in drilling and completion technologies, recent and near term field developments, and new exploration targets in less common reservoirs and subtle traps. As such, the conference will be of benefit to all geoscientists working on the UKCS.
