The 21st Century


Connected Digital Oilfield

June 20th .  2024. 14:00 UK Time

The Connected Oilfield was launched as a live event in 2004 and held in various locations including Aberdeen, Abu Dhabi, Abuja, Cairo, Kuala Lumpur and Rio de Janeiro, more than 50 events in total.  The virtual configuration attracts hundreds of connectivity specialists from all of the world's E&P operations centres.  We are interested to hear about how New-Wave technologies such as the Edge, AI, IoT, Machine Learning and Software Defined Networks, are revolutionising efficiencies in the offshore E&P environment and how advancements in Terrestrial + Non-Terrestrial Connectivity and Private 4G, 5G and LTE Networks, are combining to deliver enhanced and robust connectivity and cope with unprecedented data volumes.

How is Low Latency and High Throughput Satellite Technology Helping in the Digital Transformation of Oil and Gas Onshore/Offshore Fields?

Synopsis: With the increasing availability of high-throughput, low-latency satellite technology globally, the landscape is changing rapidly. The adoption of hybrid networks across the oil and gas industry has led to renewed efforts to deploy technologies that reduce emissions, enhance productivity, and minimize the operational personnel required on rigs. In this session, we will discuss several use cases illustrating how SES O3b mPOWER MEO technology is a crucial component of the hybrid network stack, helping the industry achieve these goals

Your E&P Data Transformation Strategy Needs a Transformation

Synopsis: The current E&P Data Transformation Strategy is outdated and unable to keep pace with the rapid advancements in technology and data analytics. A comprehensive overhaul is required to enhance data integration, improve decision-making processes, and maintain competitive advantage in the evolving energy landscape.

Creating a Continuous Data Pipeline to and from Anywhere

Synopsis: A new era of connectivity has created a landscape rich in data, but also plagued by a disparate production footprint (from offshore to downstream stations), highly latent connections, and immense data volumes (such as seismic models). That data's ability to fuel sound analytic outputs or accurately guide decisions is contingent upon timely, efficient access to it. Join this session to explore new technology and strategic approaches to navigate the sprawling infrastructure of connected oilfields and ways to accelerate time to unlock true data value and competitive edge.
