Dr. Peter Fokker (TNO, NL) on geomechanial modelling of Groningen
Dr. Mariano Garcia-Fernandez (CSIC, E) on the abandoned Castor gas storage
Dr. Jean Grasso (U Grenoble, F) on gas production in Lacq
Dr. Enrico Priolo (OGS, I) on the Midandola oil field, gas storage ...
Prof. Peter Styles (U Keele, GB) on the Cuadrilla shale gasfrack in Bowland
