Why Now is the Time for Your Production Operations Team to Become More Data Driven

  • Low oil price environment means it is more important than ever to find efficiencies and reduce costs in your operations. Digital technology is the most promising approach to find these cost savings
  • Disruptive technology like IOT and analytics are now a reality in oil and gas. Most operators are turning to these technologies to weather the low oil price- don’t get left behind.
  • $8 Billion dollars are lost in non-productive time each year. By having better data delivered to the right people and equipping them to make the right decisions, this number can be reduced dramatically
  • In response to increasingly complex oilfield operations, the digital oilfield global market is expected to reach US$33 billion by 2022 – its compound annual growth rate (CAGR) increasing by 4.8%. This conference provides an opportunity to grab a slice of that market
  • Engineers currently spend an estimated 60-80% of their time searching for, cleaning and quantifying data. It is possible to drastically reduce this number and the operational efficiency gains associated are huge.
