VPD Access – “Accelerating and Sustaining the Learning Curve through Digitalization and Automation”



Air Date: 27 August, 2019 @ 10.00 CDT

The drive to move the global drilling industry toward digitalization and automation over the past few years has been phenomenal. Driven in part by the economic conditions brought about by the downturn, companies across the spectrum have realized that they require not just incremental but step changes in cost reductions and efficiency gains. Such changes won’t be realized by doing what’s always been done or by squeezing the supply chain.

As the rest of the world adopts Industry 4.0, companies in the drilling space are also navigating their way through the digitalization and automation space. Fundamental questions that are being asked are: “Do we know what’s the optimum thing to do? And “Are we doing it?”

This virtual panel discussion, sponsored by Schlumberger, will look at some of the significant advances that have been achieved and what that tells us about where we need to go next.
