CRACKING THE DATA CHALLENGES: DEMOCRATIZING DATA, DATA GOVERNANCE, 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 structurization
  • 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.

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 and this is why we are hosting this open discussion.

What are some of the pitfalls that resulted in valuable lessons and digitalisation initiatives? How to make sure that the positive changes stick and last?

Robotics projects in development in the energy industry in 2020/2021
Robotics technology is not entirely new for the energy sector- the history of robotics in the oil and gas stretches back to the late 1950s, when the Hughes Aircraft Company released the Manipulator Operated Robot (MOBOT).
