Panel Session: Entering a New Era: Strategies for Growth in the Digital Age
The acquisition, digitization and analysis of data has revolutionized how the world conducts business. Companies that have capitalized on this technology have changed how the world interacts, and in doing so, have grown to be the largest companies in the world, outpacing energy companies. How can the oil and gas industry utilize these technologies to lower costs, drive innovation and create a more sustainable business model in the face of lower commodity prices?
Currently, visionary companies are investigating and implementing ideas to improve operations through the use of data analytics and engineered completions to lower costs and improve efficiency.
In this session, five leaders will share their visions on the direction they are taking their companies and industry. You’ll hear how they are integrating data analytics, ethical oil, crypto currencies and how they are attracting the next generation to propel the industry forward.

Winning the Unconventional Game
Is smart or engineered completions really a thing? Does a geometric design provide the best economic outcome in full-field development?
This panel will pair technical expertise with economists to contrast the different approaches applied achieving profitable unconventional reservoir development.
Discussion will be centered on well completions, including fracture design, well spacing, reservoir properties, technology pads, and how it all rolls up to impact the bottom line. Join the conversation by engaging and sharing current trends from across the WCSB, and comparisons to the approach of our partners south of the border.
