Session title: Where Does the Future Lie? Vision 2030 for Communication in O&G Industry


For O&G industry to realise its potential in full, a number of economic, social and geopolitical factors that influence the oil and gas sector globally need to be taken into consideration - as well as the technological and logistic challenges involved in extracting oil and gas from the reserves. Ingenious communication technologies will play a vital role in leading the operational and organisational changes within O&G industry into a prosperous future. 

The final session will take a forward look and consider what the future holds for smart communication technologies for O&G industry. This session will look at futuristic and far reaching ideas including ultra-wideband optical wireless sensor networks and self-powered intelligent sensing systems. 4th industrial revolution and its impact on O&G industry will also be explored.

Abstract: The Oil and Gas industry has been going through enormous disruptions and as a result, new innovative trends evolve in all the sectors, upstream, midstream and downstream.  

All sections of these sectors strive to harvest the maximum value of their assets through the acquisitions of more efficient operations by the application of fit for purpose technologies and the adaption of new business models.  

One of the key yet challenging methods to measure the success of the introduction of any technology is to observe both operational expenditure and capital expenditure. To achieve the maximum value is a challenging task as it will require finding the right business models that embrace partnership, trust, transparency and the right culture within an organisation or among stakeholders including technology providers. Believing that this challenging task represents only a part of the concerns of this complex industry that the industry has to seriously consider, this session is organised.
