Applied Digitalization for Oil & Gas




Introduction:

Digitalization, in its various forms, is slated to transform the landscape of oil & gas operations. This is achieved by adding new game-changing efficiencies and transcending barriers to boost production while containing costs simultaneously. As the industry shifts paradigms towards more complex fields after successful exploitation of the relatively “easy oil”, effective digitalization is the need of the hour.

Participants will gain first-hand exposure to new efficiencies added through digitalization while honing digital engineering skills, which are required to boost competitiveness
