Training On Digitalization For Oil And Gas


Digitalization, in its various forms, is slated to transform the landscape of oil & gas operations. This is achieved by adding new game-changing efficiencies and transcending barriers to boost production while containing costs simultaneously. As the industry shifts paradigms towards more complex fields after successful exploitation of the relatively “easy oil”, effective digitalization is the need of the hour. Participants will gain first-hand exposure to new efficiencies added through digitalization while honing digital engineering skills, which are required to boost competitiveness.


By the end of the course, participants should be able to:

  • Appreciate the cyber representation of physical assets and its implications
  • Look at the oil & gas industry as a system
  • Effectively evaluate modern information flow and control models
  • Realize and address unintended potential risks during the digitalization journey
  • Make recommendations to become more effective user of emerging technology
