  • Connected Oilfield Infrastructure – Data Transport for Field Workers and Devices

Philippe Daroux, Industrial Network Design & Consulting Manager, Chevron

Chevron will be presenting a few HSE and IIoT use cases as well as asking how to provide connectivity for field workers and devices in the complex Upstream, Midstream, and Downstream Oil & Gas environment? How and which wireless technologies can be leveraged to enable the best end user experience in a safe and secured way? And why is IIoT an exciting and less expensive way to get additional field information?

  • Efficiently Navigating Today’s Market Reality

David Burr, Vice President Business Development, Comtech EF Data

The current market situation means that now is the right time to invest in your network to enable digital transformation projects while laying the groundwork for recovery of the market. The Comtech presentation examines smart strategies for how service providers can enable operational cost savings today while preparing for opportunity when oil and gas markets recover.

  • Fueling Digital Transformation in the Connected Oil Field

Jean-Michel Rouylou, Head of Enterprise and Broadband, ST Engineering iDirect

Success in the energy market is largely dependent on how oil & gas industries develop toward profitable production offshore due to falling costs. Connectivity will allow the industry to digitize, optimize, and automate processes that were previously unconnected to save time and money, and to increase safety. Satellite’s inherent capabilities such as its ability to reach remote areas, ability to scale and to extend coverage make it an essential part of a hybrid network needed to advance the digital transformation.

Session 2: 15:30 - 17:00 (UK Time - BST)

  • Design Challenges for Connecting Remote Oilfields

Jhonny Villasmil, Sr. Telecom Engineer, A Major International EPC Corporation

This presentation will be discussing the upgrading of legacy wireless communication systems, from VHF/Microwave to Gigabit Ethernet Radios, new systems requiring communication... Designing Fiber Optic Backbone with Last Mile Radio Links, factors to be considered, suitable technology, where it is recommendable... Designing a Fully Fiber Optic Network, implications, available technology, which kind of projects require it.

  • The Effect of COVID-19 with Imminent Oilfield Recoveries and New Networks

Alvaro Sanchez, CEO, Integrasys

Integrasys contend that the prompt recovery of the Oil & Gas sector is a great opportunity for service providers to design and deploy new networks, for O&G customers take out the most of their resources and exchange data seamlessly and automated, with the least number of people on the platforms and rigs.

  • Delivering Digitalisation to Natural Resource Companies

Renato Goodfellow, Head of Satellite, BT Global Services

  • Survival of the Digitalised

Muhammad Soliman, Digitalization Lead - Industry 4.0 / IIoT / A.I., Shell

One of the biggest spend categories in the Digital Oilfield will be on sensors. Physical devices, such as vehicles, equipment, valves, pumps, tools, and gear embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity will enable these objects to connect and exchange data. Digital technology companies describe these sensor-enabled devices as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Oil and gas companies have decades of experience with sensor-enabled things—it was called Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA).
