Panel Session 1
09:30 to 10:45
Asset Management: Key factors for improving efficiencies in mature and newly planned assets:
Oil and gas companies thrive to create and improve systematic processes to appraise, develop, operate, and ultimately abandon assets cost-effectively. As global market dynamics, geopolitical forces, and volatile commodity prices continuously challenge the industry, successful organizations quickly adapt to new environments by leveraging key resources: people, technology, and assets. This panel session will focus on the key factors that drive efficiencies of asset management strategies for both, mature and newly planned assets, highlighting the role to be played by young engineers to take our industry to new heights. Addressing this enormous challenge requires YPs to rapidly develop the necessary skills that take into consideration the energy outlook today and that expected in the future, aiming to increase overall return over investments for all types of assets. This panel will have experts from the all the three major domains – drilling, reservoir as well as completion/production for a wellrounded discussion on this subject.
