09:00 Chairman’s welcome and conference introduction
09:05 Opening Keynote: IoT as a disrupter - current state of play and future ‘Big Picture’
Technology is leading the way to future profitability. What are the next big innovations? And what will the oil field of the future look like? What direction will future innovation take in the oil and gas sector?
09:30 Industry Insider’s Perspective on Adoption of Digitalisation in the Oil & Gas Industry
What is changing in the engineering and construction industry? What is the future of the project delivery process? This talk presents a summary of the findings from a Strategic Radar process to study the impact of automation and artificial intelligence on the future of project delivery and outlines some suggestions for the changes our industry needs to make in a turbulent and everchanging environment.
09:45 Digital Transformation of the Oil and Gas Industry: The role of disruptive technologies and paradigm shift needed to maximise asset value
Oil and gas industry has been digitizing for few decades now and has created very limited value from digitalization in last two decades. The underlying challenges in maximizing asset value can be attributed to slow to no adoption of disruptive technologies like Big Data, IIoTs, Blockchain, Immersive Reality, Robotics and others. In this talk I will discuss the paradigm shift needed to leverage the emerging disruptive technologies at an accelerated pace while achieving the true digital transformation well beyond digitalization. The new approach allows us to create maximum economic value, and prepares us for continuous growth with optimal resources.
