With an estimated global value of $31 billion by 2020, the digital oilfield is the oil & gas industry’s hotbed of innovation. From drilling optimisation to predictive maintenance, from Ai to IoT, the Data Driven Drilling & Production Conference 2018 is the only event you need to attend to find out the latest in advanced solutions for getting the most out of your assets. For 2018 we are upping the ante with more new features to support the innovators, technologists and gamechangers driving the digital transformation, including:

  • Data Driven Drilling Optimisation: For the first time, Upstream Intelligence is partnering with SPE’s DSATS (Drilling Systems Automation Technical Section) to deliver a day-long session on drilling automation, robotics, technology and much more!
  • Operator Digital Oilfield demos and Team Panels: Hear how multinational oil companies are implementing digital oilfield technologies across their assets, at different scales, in different locations and across asset types.
  • Protect your Assets from External Threats: As the digital oil field becomes a reality, so does the threat of cyberattacks. Join a first-of-a-kind workshop on how you can protect your assets from cyber threats, held alongside the Data Driven Drilling & Production Conference
  • Emerging Tech Showcase: A unique opportunity for innovative start-ups to pitch to VC groups and leading operator teams and for   industry practitioners to experience the technology reshaping their industry.
