  • HSE - Engaging and Training our Workforce

    New insights into health, safety and environmental management with a specific focus on people training and engagement. Best practices in engaging our people and contractors in adhering to our safety processes and standards and spreading a safety culture. Innovative and traditional approaches to safety training.

    Emerging and New Digital Technologies

    From digital technology, big data analytics, intelligent agents and cyber security a new range of innovative digital technologies have started to make a big impact on the capabilities, efficiency, safety and security of our industry. Particular interest in case studies showing a positive impact on our industry performance.


    Innovative subsea production and processing solutions provide the capability to debottleneck operations and unlock stranded pools making field development viable. Subsea production and processing technology case studies demonstrating improved operability, enhanced production and increased field recovery whilst reducing capital expenditure and improving net present value.
  • Decommissioning

    Within the lower-for-longer oil price environment, the timeline for cessation of production and decommissioning on a growing number of assets has moved forward. This has led to increased efforts on abandonment planning and infrastructure cost-efficiency from subsurface to facilities. Best practices and examples, new methods and out-of-the-box and more collaborative solutions.


    Automation brings many benefits including improved enhanced performance, consistency, as well as reducing the exposure for people to hazardous environments. Innovative solutions and case studies for implementing automation to show these benefits in the Drilling, Completion and Abandonment operations for the offshore environment.

    Reinvigorating Drilling

    When emerging from a downturn the demand for drilling services can increase much more quickly than the supply of tools and specialists. New solutions and case studies for systems including bits, tools, tubulars and rigs showing improvements in performance, ROP, shoe to shoe time, footage drilled per tool and MTBF as well as consistency and hole quality.
  • Innovation to Reduce the O&G Environmental Impact

    Insight into the innovative technologies and increased operational efficiency models that have significant impact on reducing the O&G environmental footprint in all areas with a focus on contributing to the COP 21 Climate Change target.
