|Digital data collected by the oil and gas industry supports many, if not, most of its activities. Data integrity, security, mining, analysis, and transfer are critical to the industry. Related topics such as the use and management of massive data sets (“big data”), data value and ownership, cybersecurity, cloud computing, machine learning, and virtual twin modeling and simulation represent only a small subset of the derivative uses of digital data being contemplated by the industry.|
Why are they important for the oil and gas industry?
These are not “buzzwords” but imperative discussion topics for the oil and gas industry because of the potential for significant improvements in safety, asset security, and environmental stewardship. The opportunity for improvements in performance, availability, efficiency, and profitability demonstrated in other industries holds promise for the oil and gas industry as well.
The goal of this panel is to promote a cohesive approach that will allow the industry to increase its knowledge base and, thus benefit from the experience accumulated in other industries; hence, avoiding potentially disastrous mishaps.
