Why should you attend Future Oil & Gas conference ?

As the Oil and Gas industry adjusts to the ‘lower for longer’ oil price, hopes are turning to digitalisation as a solution for clawing back profits.

At Future Oil & Gas you will gain new insights into:

  • Digitalising and integrating the value chain: working smarter, at lower costs
  • Making practical use of machine learning, augmented reality, 3D printing, drones and artificial intelligence as an economic imperative

  • Collaborating with start-ups, smaller tech providers and universities on new technologies, systems and innovation projects
