Oil and gas companies constantly strive to accelerate time to revenue, optimize margins, and manage sometimes unpredictable costs. And in many cases, these companies have relevant data that might otherwise assist in these goals but yet it goes unanalyzed. Measurements and data collection on topics such as drilling, production, supply chain activity, etc. continually occurs yet action is sometimes only taken on data subsets, which can easily miss important inflection points. Industry leading super majors have innovated via concepts such as “Smart Oil Fields” to optimize reservoir characterization and production, and to reduce non-productive time (NPT) and costs.

Accelerate: Rethinking Operational AnalyticsAn Interactive Lunch for Energy IT Leaders is invitation only and limited to 20 senior IT and business leaders from Oil & Gas companies in the greater Houston area.

We will host an interactive discussion that will share lessons learned and experiences about how the energy industry can realize the opportunities to enhance revenue and save costs via better business decisions based on improved collection, use, and analysis of data.
