Presentation title:

Exploring technology disruption through digitisation to reduce profligacy and the environmental impact of our industry

Abstract:

Despite the need for change, the oil industry tends to be a laggard in terms of the adoption of digital technologies. This paper explores some of the areas where such technology disruption could deliver a step-change in the way the oil industry works and the challenges ahead for providers of such services in the face of a historically risk-averse industry. Think Airbnb or Uber for the oil industry.
