Improving sustainability, reliability, and productivity are major themes of current critical research in the upstream oil and gas industry. Although some of the pressure on supply for hydrocarbons has been addressed via the recent advancement of hydraulic fracturing, the industry’s ability to meet ever-growing long-term global demand for energy will require materials, products, and services to access and produce oil and gas trapped efficiently and effectively.
The oil field industry must lead the development of new ultra-high-performance metal alloys, sealing materials, systems and processes to meet the world’s future demand for energy while it continuously improves the reliability and efficiency of oil and gas recovery from less demanding environments. Both of these tasks require the sustained ability for industry leaders, engineers, and scientists to innovate unceasingly. Science and technology development are required to address these technical and cost challenges.
What does a space agency, a medical institute and an oil & gas company have in common? What can they possibly collaborate on to improve their innovation and competiveness? Attend this presentation by an Oil & Gas VP of Technology to see how one can realize more innovations and accelerate development of technology driven solutions by fostering a collaborative environment across industries.
