Smart E&P conference to focus on information technology in gas

Learn how leading E&Ps are solving the big challenges in the oil and gas industry with advanced control systems to eliminate cost, environment, and technical barriers.

Learn how leading E&Ps are solving the big challenges in the oil and gas industry with advanced control systems to eliminate cost, environment, and technical barriers.

Hear leading oil and gas companies share their best practices combining IT and data acquisition with intelligent production engineering to streamline operational costs.

Information technology is playing a huge role in the future of E&P companies, enabling them to get more from their reserves in the most cost-effective manner.  The ones that are most successful at operating remotely and using data wisely will claim big rewards in operational efficiency. 

The 2nd annual Smart E&P conference, to be held from the 16–18 June in Perth, is bringing together chief information, technology and operational executives alongside chief data scientists, geologists, geophysicists and petroleum engineers from around the country.

They will share their best efficiency- and profitability-driving practices in this low oil price environment and provide case studies of the latest innovations E&P companies are utilising around the world to streamline operational costs. 

Key speakers that focus on their best practices include: 

  • International speaker, Petronas Integrated Operations Program Director of Solution Services Steve Scillitani, who will explain integrated operations (IO) projects through a common model and how the next generation of IO is beginning to impact the macro business processes originating from operational excellence programs;
  • International speaker, Halliburton Chief Data Scientist Satyam Priyadarshy, will reveal how leveraging big data and data science in combination with mobile technology has addressed some of their major challenges and provided them with actionable insights; 
  • Oil Search Head of Strategy, Transformation and Enterprise Architecture Prasanna Venkatesh will share his strategy on identifying process changes to create business efficiency and how Oil Search has created an effective process architecture to support the exploration value chain;
  • Curtin University Woodside Chair Xiangyu Wang will illustrate, through major oil and gas company case studies, how you can use building information modelling and other technology to increase productivity and optimise assets; and,
  • Deep Exploration Technologies Cooperative Research Centre will share the outcome of their next generation sensor technology, which collects geophysical data cheaper, faster and safer.

Hear from leading organisations such as Woodside, Oil Search, Clough, Oilex, Halliburton, Schlumberger, Worley Parsons, Wood Group, together with collaborating academic institutions and research facilities such as Curtin University, iVec, Pawsey Supercomputing Centre, National Computational Infrastructure Facility, CSIRO and Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information.

Learn how innovation and technology-driven step changes are being successfully implemented in oil and gas upstream operations.

With over 25 speakers, 18 international and local keynote presentations, three panel discussions and two full-day in-depth learning sessions for senior executives, this three-day event will bring together the best in the industry to showcase solutions that have enabled operators to maximise revenue from their existing infrastructure.
