Full Description

Well Digitalization Panel Discussion : Because Digital technologies are both much more powerful and affordable than in the past, it opens unprecedented opportunities of business optimization and disruption. It is true not only for Tech companies, it also very much applies to the Oil and Gas world.  But the question remain for the Oil and Gas Executives: in front of all these tempting experiments - where to start?, Which ones to prioritize? And what is the right governance for it in global footprint companies? What is the right balance between central coordination and local leadership ?
