CRACKING THE DATA CHALLENGES: DEMOCRATIZING DATA, DATA MANAGEMENT STANDARDS, BEST PRACTICES AND TOOLS
The IT systems at most oil and gas companies include a multitude of legacy software applications purchased from various vendors in different formats across different functions. The inflexible architecture of these systems often makes the underlying data inaccessible. In addition, the industry has failed to maintain a strong focus on data quality and different countries’ legal frameworks prevent data transmission. This has made it difficult to build repeatable use cases for the industry. Thus the question remains- How to fully leverage the data?
  • Enabling collaboration through a single cloud-based environment for the whole exploration & production (E&P) value chain. Is the all-encompassing Data Platform becoming impractical? What are the alternatives?
  • Breaking data from silos and putting it into context - deep dive into best practices of data contextualization and structurilisation
  • Finding the consensus between government and corporate views on data protection legal framework
  • Reprocessing legacy data. Best practices in maintaining and utilizing prior industry knowledge for current use with digital tools
  • Using DataOps to making data speak human and democratize data access in the industry

USING DATA AND DIGITAL TWINS TO REDUCE COSTS AND MAXIMISE VALUE FROM INVESTMENT AFTER THE COVID-19
The pandemic and the adoption of big data analytics and IoT across the industry has contributed to the rise of new technology to manage risk and achieve sustainability. Yet the promise of data-driven approaches and Digital Twins is still being tested and scaled with some challenges. The data used for analytics, prediction and automation needs to be of high quality, verified, and referenced. How to make sure that investments can be directed where it delivers the most value?
  • Data Analytics & Digital Twin - A practical playbook. Scaling from pilot to operational model including organisational and cultural change
  • Advancing real-time data and visualisation for improved decision-making and data insights
  • Integrating with OT to provide quantifiable and actionable results
  • Optimising a brownfield asset to increase energy efficiency
  • Developing more predictive models; using data coming in from the asset through smart sensors and Edge devices
  • Adopting an ecosystem approach to maximise return on CapEx and OpeEx across assets lifecycle.

CLOSED FOR PRESS- LEARNING HOW TO NOT FAIL WITH DIGITAL
Failure is an essential part of innovation. But it only works when the process of failure leads to learning. At conferences, we tend only to talk about success stories, and disregard our experience from failing with digital transformation initiatives.

This session aims to correct that. Brave speakers + open mic + online drinks reception= digital failures night!

*IMPORTANT: THIS SESSION IS UNDER THE CHATHAM HOUSE RULE.

The session requires a separate registration, it will not be recorded and the access is not available for journalists and press.
