During the last two decades we have seen an increasing number of wells being drilled through volcanic units. The aim of this conference is to create a forum for oil and service companies as well as others that have experience with drilling in basalt to present and discuss the challenges that occur when drilling a heterogenic volcanic basalt package. We are planning to invite speakers from oil- and service companies with experience in drilling volcanics basalts to tell us what they have learned.
