Session 3 of 3: 


During the last 20 years, there has been a paradigm shift with the development of digital technology that is changing not only the way we access information but also the foundational business models previously used by multiple industries. This “Digital Transformation” has truly come of age, as every level of the corporation has come to rely on accurate, real-time data for making top-level market decisions down to performing individual processes. It is characterized by the rapid creation of new, innovative, digitally-driven technologies, which can be easily combined to generate powerful capabilities in the capture and processing of data. 

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. 

In this presentation, we will discuss how the Digital Transformation can benefit Oil & Gas companies, and present a specific approach for introducing digital technologies into the realm of Production, with what we call the “Voice of the Oilfield™.”
