Where business meets innovation
Senior executives from oil and gas operators, service companies, technology suppliers and industry experts meet at the annual Future Oil & Gas and Future Downstream conferences to examine the disruptive innovation and emerging processes that will shape the future of the oil and gas industry.
Thanks to the latest technological advancements, we are now poised for a second digital age that could further reduce costs, unleash unparalleled productivity, and boost performance significantly—if executives can harness the right technologies to support their business strategy. Making better use of existing technology can deliver serious returns: according to McKinsey up to $1 billion in cost savings or production increases. Executives that make their organisations more digital will be well positioned to pursue new growth opportunities.
