Tony Edwards, CEO will be appearing on a Panel Discussion on Digital Transformation : Realities and Expectations at at Virtual Workshop hosted by the SPE International Digital Energy Technical Section.

Digital transformation has gained greater momentum during COVID-19 and is perceived by leading oil and gas enterprises as a pivotal vehicle to improve efficiency and accelerate the decarbonization of the oil and gas value chain. Historically, many large-scale digital applications have experienced setbacks and challenges and have under-delivered on what they had envisaged to fulfil. In the era of energy transition, oil and gas developers are raising the bar of expectations and are emphasizing the role of digitalization in reshaping the future of the oil and gas industry.

The session aims on providing insights on the intrinsic value of digitalization and assess infrastructure readiness, market maturity, human capital, processes, and access to capital. Presenters will attempt to provide answers and insights to the following questions:

  • What are the imperatives for successful oil and gas digital projects?
  • What are the techno-economic challenges that could impede the scalability of digital solutions in the oil and gas industry?
  • How can the oil and gas developers manage the realities and expectations in their quests of becoming more digitalized?
