PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The American Energy Society, a non-partisan and independent network of energy professionals, will convene leading oil and gas executives to discuss new technological innovations that are having a profound impact on the entire industry, from exploration and production to efficiencies and operations.
Scheduled for November 13-14 at Union Station of Minute Maid Park – home field for the 2017 World Series champion Houston Astros! – “The Digital Oilfield” will highlight three topics: deployed digital technologies; next-generation disruptive technologies and new business models; and critical security and risk factors. A concluding scenario planning seminar will provide a framework for companies building longer-term strategies around digital technology adoption.
In addition to presentations by Google Energy, Oracle and Rebellion, confirmed participants include but are not limited to: Raymond Smelley, CIO at Chevron; Bill Johnson, CTO at DCP Midstream; Jim Claunch, VP at Statoil; as well as executives from cutting edge digital-technology companies like Invatare AI, Enthought, Uptake, and more. Special programs include: opening keynotes by Commander Kirk Lippold USN (ret.) and Mark Mills; tours of Minute Maid Park; Shark-Tank-Lite pitch competition between ten proven energy-technology startups from across North America; and a ceremony announcing the winner of the “Energy Writer of the Year, 2017."
“The rapid adoption of new digital technologies by the oil and gas sector is fueling a historic market-driven revolution,” said Eric Vettel, President of the American Energy Society. “However, like most revolutions, change is chaotic, and not all of the adopted solutions are rational. Those who lead the next generation of this industry have a deep understanding of the disruptive technologies that enhance efficiency, improve productivity, and provide security. Others will find their companies left behind. In response to overwhelming demand by our Members throughout this sector, we are pleased to host a conference that highlights first-mover insights and practical, value-driven solutions.”
