Track Descriptions

Powering up the Exploration Engine Through Digital Transformation

Get new insights into how E&P companies are shifting gears and focusing on digital transformation best practices, by leveraging AI, machine learning and Big Data analytics to work smarter and more cost-effectively. Learn how responding through data in real time is key to meeting today's challenges — whether opening up new frontier basins, pursuing near-field exploration or carrying out effective exploitation of assets as they move from appraisal to production.

Tapping Into a Smart and Connected E&P Ecosystem for Enhanced Decision-Making and Delivering of Safer, Faster and More Productive Wells

Learn how automated data management and Big Data analytics combined with rich engineering science are accelerating the transfer of cross-domain knowledge via the Cloud. See how multiple data sources can be integrated to assist in making complex decisions during each stage — from well planning and design, to execution through economic and performance evaluation — to aid in maximum reservoir recovery at minimal cost. And hear use cases on how advanced, emerging technologies are creating value, by enabling greater efficiencies, so decision-makers can respond based on evolving science.

Realizing the Full Financial Potential of Developing Assets With Advanced Digital Capabilities for Reservoirs Near and Far

With the ever-increasing complexity of asset management, particularly in remote locations, learn how digitalization and integration of data are key to maximize ultimate recovery, by combining production operations with reservoir development, management and economics for increased asset performance. See and hear how other companies are adopting digital to optimize production, improve operational efficiencies and lower costs.

Catching the Digital Wave: To Get the Most Value of Big Data and Data Lakes, From Exploration to Abandonment

Discover how to digitally harness the power of Big Data and Data Lakes to help optimize the extraction of oil and gas and unlock previously unreachable hydrocarbon resources. Learn about the best practices and latest technology tools you can apply on the most powerful E&P platform for successfully incorporating data-enhanced processes and advanced analytical workflows into your everyday operations, enabling more informed decisions at every stage.
