DEA Supports Students’ PhD Projects
DEA has welcomed three students at DEA Norway who’s PhD projects investigating NCS geology it supports. The met up offered the opportunity to exchange ideas and analysis.
For the next three years, Andreas Hagset at the University of Tromsø, will study the potential for finding oil prone source rocks in the Cretaceous basins along the western margin of the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
Together with fellow students Vilde Dimmen and Isabel Edmundson from the University of Bergen, he is on a three-day visit to the DEA office in Stavanger – enjoying access to DEA subsurface data, technology and knowledge.
“Clearly, it is a great encouragement to have access to, and work alongside the DEA professionals. I’m still at an early phase of my research, but already I see a great potential for interesting findings,” Andreas Hagset said.
“The industry perspective is necessary. It helps us to understand how it all works in practical terms, as well as strengthening our ability to prioritize, interpret and analyze the data,” Vilde added.
DEA’s Roy Davies said: “We ensure that research carried out by the universities is relevant for us and the industry as a whole. At the same time, the students help us find solutions to key challenges by finding new approaches to analyzing the data. Also, we fulfill our social responsibility by helping to train the next generation of geoscience specialists.”
