Going into the energy transition, the oil and gas industry is challenged on its efficiency, societal acceptance, and a legacy of aging infrastructure. Regarding efficiency, alternative sources of energy are showing significant reductions in cost per unit energy; year on year, that will be hard to match. Societal acceptance is crucial for our ability to operate and to be regarded as a ‘force for good’.

Decommissioning and restoration involve the challenge of bringing our sites back to their original state, involving substantial cost and environmental concerns.

For each of the domains mentioned above, innovation and new ways of working play a key role in meeting the challenges. Finding ways to increase the pace of development and implementation is crucial.

For most of the work on wells, many parties are involved. This helps innovation because of the different perspectives and technical backgrounds. However, coordination of efforts can be a challenge.

In the last few years, new forms of cooperation and contracting have started to emerge in the industry. These initiatives typically centre around things including: shared goals and incentives, working as a team, integrated project organisation, implementation of digital solutions, and standardisation and simplification of processes.

Several examples of these new forms of collaboration will be shared during this panel session. The discussion will be around how this type of working may benefit the industry and what further implementation steps may look like.

10T  Well Placement Mississippi
Session Chairpersons Martyn Ian Greensmith - MIG Consulting (Scotland) Ltd, Matthew Rhodes - BP Upstream – Global Wells Organisation
Well Placement encompasses the engineering and services required to spatially place all our well types in the optimal position with respect to current and future value creation. It is paramount that this placement firstly considers HSE with respect to existing wells, geohazards and our understanding of the pore-pressure/fracture gradient regime (well control). With this is mind Well Placement needs to apply a risk based multi-disciplinary approach. This session will cover the optimisation of survey acquisition and advanced quality control of existing systems, and also present the latest thinking with respect to trajectory definition and technology advancement.

Diversity and Inclusion Session: Closing the Gender Gap in Oil and Gas

Photos from the 2019 Diversity and Inclusion Session

The IADC and SPE are committed to delivering a balanced agenda around diversity and inclusion, and to support member companies as they strive to address the gap in the oil and gas sector. This session will explore the challenges facing the industry and how they can be addressed. 

This initiative aims to build on the efforts already being undertaken at individual company levels to attract, develop and retain female staff — especially in technical and senior management roles — and to remove barriers that may currently hinder or discourage women from rising through the ranks into leadership roles.

The aim is to address the factors contributing to the gender gap and to advantage all companies, their owners and shareholders through the incremental performance and value that parity will generate. This is good for our people, good for our stakeholders, and good for our business.

Whilst in 2017 the session focused on leadership, aspiration, goal setting, STEM, recruitment, retention, corporate culture and work life balance, the panel now feels it is time to move the conversation forward with some hard-hitting topics that affect the lives of many. Make sure you join us for this special session in The Hague.

Q&A with speaker Rachael Reed, Completion Engineer, BP

 

Rachael Reed, Completion Engineer, BP

Question 1: Why is Diversity & Inclusion important to you/your company?

It has been proven that diverse and inclusive teams result in great business outcomes. Within BP, we’ve had a number of scenarios that have had group thinking at the core where people have not had the courage to speak-up or challenge the status quo. Having a culture that truly supports diversity and inclusion drives creativity and ensures that people bring their true selves to work and feel empowered to speak up and contribute. We see building a diverse and inclusive organisation as foundational to achieving a competitive advantage.

Question 2: Why did you decide to participate in the Diversity Session at this particular conference?

This is a great opportunity to network and learn from our industry peers. We hope to come away with best practices from others to help instruct our forward strategy. We also hope to find opportunities to work collaboratively on an industry level.

Question 3: What do you hope professionals will learn from this session?

During our session, we plan to discuss BP North Sea Wells’ journey and forward vision relating to building a diverse and inclusive work place. We hope professionals can see parallels to their own organisation and can learn from our journey to instruct their own diversity initiatives.


Q&A with speaker Thom Dennis, Founder, Serenity in Leadership

 

Thom Dennis, Founder, Serenity in Leadership

Question 1: Why is Diversity & Inclusion important to you/your company?

Diversity and inclusion should underpin agenda – whether economic, social or political – and not just become visible when decision-makers need press coverage. These concepts celebrate the fundamental equality that exists between individuals – an equality that is easily forgotten as we grow up conditioned to elevate ourselves with possessions and accolades. Bringing humanity back to personal contentment and alignment with one’s fellow man does much to address conflict. Diversity and inclusion also enable creativity to emerge through widened insight and experience. By limiting hiring and advancement to the stale, male and pale paradigm, business limits its vision and progress.

Question 2: Why did you decide to participate in the Diversity Session at this particular conference?

Serenity in Leadership and its people have been working in the Oil & Gas Industry since 2005. We help companies improve their cultures so that people thrive in a safe, respectful and highly productive environment. This conference is an opportunity for us to share our learning and ideas for the future of effective leadership.

Question 3: What do you hope professionals will learn from this session?

This talk will outline the manifestations of #MeToo specific to the Oil and Gas industry. ‘It doesn’t happen here’ or ‘we’re dealing with it internally’ are no longer good enough: a proactive strategy integrated into the safety culture is the only thing capable of dismantling unconscious negative behaviours in the workplace.
Attendees will be shown why and how they should protect the mental welfare of their colleagues with equal attention compared to their physical wellbeing. By applying our recommendations, the industry can reap the commercial benefits of a reinvigorated and secure workforce.


Q&A with speaker Beatriz Rodriguez, VP of Human Resources , Oilfield Equipment Baker Hughes, a GE Company

 

Beatriz Rodriguez, VP of Human Resources , Oilfield Equipment Baker Hughes, a GE Company

Question 1: Why is Diversity & Inclusion important to you/your company?

We strive to build a culture which promotes both diversity and inclusion, the reason why is simple:  it touches all parts of the business.  It helps generate innovation, it’s easier to hire and retain great talent, diverse teams perform better, it helps our employer brand, it helps us understand our customers better, it makes BHGE a great place to work. 

Question 2: Why did you decide to participate in the Diversity Session at this particular conference?

Being part of this conference is a great platform to not only share and learn from each other but also bring visibility and exposure to the efforts we are doing in Diversity & Inclusion so it stays relevant at senior level attending this conference.

Question 3: What do you hope professionals will learn from this session?

Some insights into how BHGE tackles the pay gap issue and hopefully foster some thinking about the implications in driving culture in the organisation.
