Finding Petroleum Lunch'n Think Webinar: Remote operations and digital twins - making them work in practise
Webinar led by Julian Pickering, CEO of Geologix Systems Integration, formerly BP Head of Digital Technology for Global Drilling and Completions and the Head of the BP Field of the Future Facilities Programme.

For the oil and gas industry to find its pathway to survival over the coming decades, it needs to keep costs of production down and keep emissions from operations down. Both of which mean ensuring production is happening at best efficiency. People need to have good awareness of what is going on, both onsite and remotely, and remote experts need to be able to offer useful support.

Technologies for doing this have been gradually developing over the past decade, and now environmental pressure, cost pressure, and also COVID-19, is encouraging more adoption.

In this webinar, Dr Julian Pickering, CEO of Geologix Systems Integration, formerly BP Head of Digital Technology for Global Drilling and Completions and the Head of the BP Field of the Future Facilities Programme will outline the most useful technologies, the best way to make them work, and answer questions / lead discussion about how to get them moving faster and better.
