Description

This is the new date for the event originally scheduled for September 17th, and interrupted by Hurricane Ike.  

Tom will present an overview and his personal point of view concerning the speed, pace of acceptance, and results from the digital oil field initiatives, from the large integrated oil companies, to the large independent oil companies. His perspective will include what has worked well so far, what areas of opportunity exist for joint collaboration, and where we can still drive significant improvements in costs and production optimization, and increase staff productivity.
