Session 4: Surface Technology (Instrumentation)

Key challenges for surface production & operation area like managing aging facilities & instruments, shortage of industry experts, increase in unconventional, deep water & heavy oil production and higher HSE standards had become common issues to O&G producers at this moment. In response to those challenges, producers need to enhance their capability to efficiently manage the assets as well as to have better and faster decision making process at every working level. Programs like asset integrity monitoring & prediction, communication infrastructure & instrument enhancement, remotely control operation, real-time data monitoring & visualisation and integrated planning for maintenance & operation had now become a great necessity for the producers to effectively sustain their O&G production and operation.
