In the energy field, technological change does not come cheap: research is expensive and requires a long development and lead-in period – not to mention that the pay back is often uncertain. Thus, joint actions and public funding, such as from the European Union, often has a pivotal role in financing basic research, developing innovative technologies and promoting the substantial stock of energy-efficient technologies.

With the objective to foster the involvement of Russian partners in collaborative projects with partners from the European Union, this international event is taking place from 29 - 30 November 2004 in Moscow, Russia. This is an opportunity for both sides to present latest technologies in the oil & gas industry, with special focus on current and future technologies addressing the Russian market.

This 2-day conference provides a unique opportunity to consolidate partnerships between European & Russian service, supply, and operating companies and to explore ideas for project proposals.

The conference is organized by the Smart Reservoir Network, a thematic network on "Innovative and Sustainable Sub-surface Exploitation of Natural Resources", co-financed by the European Union within its 5th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development.

The purpose of the Smart Reservoir Network is to identify R&D priorities in the reservoir domain, that will enable the European and Russian service and supply industry in co-operation with operators, universities and research institutes to develop the technology needed to find and produce fossil fuels with the minimum of discharge and emissions, and to develop ways to use fossil fuels more intelligently through decarbonisation and CO2 management.

The aim of the Smart Reservoir Network, reflected in this conference, is to bring together relevant European and Russian actors and stakeholders, to foster the development of common high quality project proposals addressing the present and future challenges of the sub-surface exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbon energy.
