Applying Digital Transformation in the Oil and Gas Industry – The Holistic approach for Well Construction and Production Operation.

During the last 20 years, there has been a paradigm shift with the development of digital technology that is changing the way we operate our physical assets. The Oil and Gas industry has commenced its own Digital Transformation, with the increasing use of emerging digital technologies, such as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Big Data Analytics, to enhance the Exploration and Production lifecycle. This session will focus on Digital Solutions applied to Well Construction and Production Operations.
