In an exclusive webinar held on September 29, 2020, Africa Oil & Power in partnership with Microsoft hosted the “Leveraging the Power of Technology for Oilfield Optimization” webinar where strategies for the productive implementation of innovative, cost-cutting technologies in the Angolan and Sub-Saharan context were generated, as the need to allocate capital to assets with the highest returns and operational efficiencies becomes more pressing.
Digitalization and optimization of oilfield assets have emerged as principal cost-cutting mechanisms in the wake of our new era, as oil and gas companies continue to face threats to efficiency, sustainability and profitability. Well integrity, enhanced oil recovery, manufacturing execution systems, cloud computing – such digital applications are capable of uniting real-time data with advanced analytics to improve decision-making and boost efficiency and sustainability.
