The prize is awarded a license group, company, or team who during the last two years have given
a courageous and innovative technological contribution in exploration for oil and gas on the Norwegian continental shelf.

The recipient has matured an exploration technology with high potential
leading to increased G&G knowledge or future commercial oil & gas discoveries.

the process

Nominate YOUR candidate by April 16 2021. The jury for the Exploration Innovation Prize (EIP),
will select the top 3 nominees who will be invited to present at NCS Exploration - Recent Advances in Exploration Technology.

The three finalists will be unveiled on expronews.com. 

Conference delegates are invited to vote for their favorite prospect during the conference.
