New digital and technology event launched for the international oil and gas industry
ENGenious: 4-6 September 2018, Aberdeen
A new three-day biennial global symposium and exhibition aimed at driving radical digital and technological transformation across the upstream oil and gas industry has been launched by SPE and Reed Exhibitions, the partners behind SPE Offshore Europe.
ENGenious has been conceived in response to demand from the upstream oil and gas community for an event focusing on emerging products, services and techniques with the ability to transform the efficiency of exploration and production activities.
The first edition will be held at AECC, Aberdeen, Scotland from 4 – 6 September 2018. The event will run on alternate years to SPE Offshore Europe.
Exhibitors, speakers and delegates from around the world will converge for an exhibition and symposium that will focus on four topics: Automation & Control Systems, Data & Analytics, Robotics and Smart Communications.
ENGenious 2018 will be chaired by Matthias Heilmann, Chief Digital Officer, Baker Hughes GE based in San Ramon, California, USA with Houston-based Ahmed Hashmi, Head of Upstream Technology at BP as Vice Chair.
Matthias Heilmann commented: “With content highlighting the latest reservoir, drilling and production software and technology innovations, this event is led by the industry for the industry to enable discovery, learning and discussion. Differentiated from other ‘Industrial Internet of Things’ or technology-driven events, ENGenious will provide deep technical content, and provocative forward-looking strategy discussions to move the upstream industry into the digital industrial era.”
Ahmed Hashmi added: “Digital is disrupting and fundamentally changing the nature of our work. Pervasive adoption of digital technology across our industry will drive transformation and open up exciting digital career opportunities to serve the world's growing energy needs. Digital forces will allow us to continuously adapt, strengthen and reinvent our industry. I am very excited to be co-chairing this conference; the diversity of the ENGenious programme offers something for every discipline in the upstream sector.”
Gareth Rapley, ENGenious exhibition director, said: “ENGenious will be delivered by the team behind SPE Offshore Europe and Aberdeen was the global location of choice. Delegates will be assured of first class programme content from top international experts while exhibitors will have the opportunity to showcase their capabilities to a highly targeted audience.”
The call for papers will open in Autumn 2017.
