Seminar: How to address E&P performance, safety, and security assurance?

Moderator: Philippe Flichy, IO-Hub

Discussion Facilitators:

  • Guillermo Arango, Baker Hughes
  • Claude Baudoin, cébé IT & Knowledge Management LLC
  • Philippe Flichy, IO-Hub

The complexity and risk of real-time exploration and production (E&P) operations is growing steadily along several axes: geology, operational environment, technology, distributed multi-discipline teams and multi-company actors. Operational performance, safety, and security assurance demand a high degree of situational awareness and real-time coordination.

We invite you to debate how we can address this as an industry.
