In response to the downturn and unsteady oil and gas environment, companies need to utilise new technology to aid performance, restore business efficiency, reduce costs, and stimulate activity.
EnergySys held a “Focus on the Future” forum in Aberdeen in December 2016, which explored how IT can help companies in becoming more successful, despite the current climate.
We had presentations from two leading experts, and invaluable questions from our distinguished audience.
Our first speaker, former Global ERP Manager of Shell and IT Consultant, Doug Webster, examined the future role of IT in Oil and Gas, highlighted why this downturn is different to previous ones, and identified the specific challenges for both survival and growth.
Our CEO, Dr Peter Black, also presented his highly acclaimed assessment of the Digital Oilfield, and evaluated the strength of technology in increasing business performance.
We have included the recordings so that you may view them in your own time.
