Digital Transformation Event Focused on Change Management Strategies Launches

Share Article

Finding solutions to change management issues is a major challenge for those pursuing digital transformation in oil & gas. In response to this, Offshore Network have launched an event looking at how the industry can overcome these issues and enable the digital transformation in upstream.

A major priority in Upstream Oil & Gas right now is Digital transformation, with an estimated $1 trillion in potential efficiency savings to be made. However, change management issues have limited the value delivered by digital initiatives so far. Finding effective strategies to overcome these challenges therefore holds the key to achieving the successful digital transformation of Upstream Oil & Gas.

In response to this, Offshore Network have launched a new event focused specifically on finding effective change management strategies to enable successful digital transformation – the Upstream Digital Transformation Conference (happening in London on 27th-28th May).

Super Major Eni will present on results from the establishment of a dedicated change management team within their Digital Business Unit in 2018 and the effect that has had on driving their digital transformation. Also digital leaders from operators CEPSA, Equinor, Pandion Energy, Premier Oil, Tullow Oil and Wintershall Dea will discuss their digital programmes, share lessons from their experiences and present their own change management approaches, as will VPs from service companies Baker Hughes, Schlumberger and Petrofac.

The conference has grown out of a successful programme with a day dedicated to digital transformation day at Offshore Network’s OWI EU 19 conference last year and follows several months of research into the topic to make absolutely sure it delivers value for all parties involved.

Reflecting that research, the conference programme has been centred on 5 key themes: culture change, structure change, improving data, digital skills and industry partnerships.

The event will be attended by 200+ digital leaders from across upstream, with at least 60% of the audience being made up by operators and service providers. 30+ expert speakers will deliver the programme and various digital solution providers will be showcasing the work they can do. Plus there’s the opportunity to engage with debates running parallel to our central agenda, such as how digital transformation relates to reducing Upstream’s carbon footprint.
