The RMF is an excellent multi-disciplinary platform which brings together oil producers, scientists, technologists, engineers, academics and researchers from around the world to present, share and discuss the widespread and versatile effects of microbes in oil reservoirs.

11 - 12 November 2020

This respected forum provides a highly technical programme featuring the latest research and guidance on reservoir microbiology in oil fields, including biodegradation, bioremediation, and applications for oil recovery and enhancement.

Call for abstracts: deadline - 3 July 2020

Who attends this event?

As the effects of microbes in the oil recovery are very widespread and versatile, this event will be of interest to all professionals and students working on issues resulting from the detrimental or beneficial impacts of microbes in oil recovery.

Areas of work or research will include:

  • Microbiology and molecular biology
  • Production chemistry and engineering
  • Geochemistry and geophysics
  • Reservoir engineering
  • Material sciences
  • Computer modelling

The informal nature of this event makes it an excellent networking opportunity with delegates from all over the world representing companies, chemical suppliers, research institutes, universities, consultancies and service companies. Students are also encouraged to participate.
