October 23, 2019. The international conference "Integrated scientific support of oil and gas asset development: experience, innovation and future trends" took place in Perm city. The event was dedicated to the 90th anniversary of the oil industry in Perm region. The conference was organised by the Branch of LLC "LUKOIL-Engineering" (100% subsidiary of PJSC "LUKOIL") "PermNIPIneft". The conference was attended by Doroudi Abolghase, Regional Director of CMG, and Dmitry Kalinin, representative of LLC "PETEC". At the plenary session of the conference there was given a joint presentation "Integrated field modelling in the framework of a single CoFlow CMG software".
The conference was attended by about 200 participants from forty companies including LUKOIL, Gazpromneft, Rosneft, Tatneft, MOL, IFP, Halliburton, Weatherford and others. Speakers from Russia, Canada, Norway, France, Hungary, Austria and Great Britain presented the best practices in geology, field development, well construction, digitalization, optimazation and AI.
In June 2019 PETEC has signed an agreement with Eliis and became distributor of PaleoScan™ family of software products in Russia. PaleoScan is a new generation of semi-automatic 2D/3D seismic interpretation with data loading to generation of interpreted objects in a user-friendly environment, offering rapid data screening and cross navigation.
Eliis SAS is an international software provider in seismic interpretation for the oil and gas industry. Its office is located in Montpellier (France).

NEW RESEARCH GIANT NAMED NORCE
NORCE Norwegian Research Center AS (NORCE) was founded in July 2017 to create a powerhouse for research that will lead the way in innovation, value creation and research.
In January 2018, NORCE took over the ownership of Uni Research AS, the International Research Institute of Stavanger AS (IRIS), Christian Michelsen Research AS (CMR), Agderforskning AS and Teknova AS. The business was fully integrated in the autumn of 2018 when the five former institutes were merged into NORCE. In December 2018, NORCE took over the ownership of Norut Northern Research Institute AS, which was merged into NORCE in 2019.
The owners' ambitions are for NORCE to:
contribute to change and innovation in the private and public sectors
strengthen research-based innovation and development
increase their national and international competitiveness
increase opportunities for their competence to be used across disciplines and sectors
increase their chances when competing for EU research funding
Drawing on expertise in such a wide range of fields, and of such a high calibre, NORCE is uniquely equipped to deliver new knowledge and innovative solutions that will be important and useful – regionally, nationally and globally.
The owners wish to use the merger to build an influential entity. Commissioned research increasingly takes place in an international market, which makes being a large player advantageous.
NORCE benefits from maintaining a presence along much of Norway's coast, and will work towards southern and western Norway, as well as Norway as a whole, gaining a more prominent role in innovation and commissioned research. NORCE will also ensure that the many productive and technologically-leading businesses in the region continue to lead the way in the changes to come in Norwegian manufacturing and business in the years ahead. Good synergies between these companies, a large research group and the universities will be of great value here.
PETEC’S 15 YEARS ANNIVERSARY
In 2016 PETEC marked its 15-year anniversary. In the framework of this event on November 10-11 we held scientific-technical seminar “New technologies of extraction of hydrocarbons in a changing world”. At the seminar presentations on recent achievements and development in new research areas were made by our partners, IRIS, CMG, AGR. We thank all the speakers and guests of the workshop who took part in the anniversary, and express our openness to mutually beneficial cooperation!
