Pre-conference Workshop A – 30th January 2023

Maximizing Productivity of Upstream Operations

Workshop Leader: Kris Palka, CEOAkine, Inc

Electrification and IIoT and Machine Learning are all equally critical to successfully achieving fully autonomous operations and increasing profitability.

This workshop will cover a number of topics leading to a full understanding how technology will improve our upstream operations. 

Identification of the most important components of the upstream operating cost and how they impact profitability.  

Evaluation of electricity as the most effective way to power upstream operations including typical electricity cost components, variable frequency drive operation and how to select and apply energy efficient power components in your upstream operations

Exploration of the main reasons for lost productivity and possible ways to capture missing opportunities. 

Evaluation of new developments in downhole analytics and machine learning to autonomously identify underperforming wells, what is preventing us from being effective and how improved direct science and machine learning offer a more robust foundation for full automation of artificial lift and the whole upstream operations.

Focus on the integral part the people play on the road to full automation and how the transition may unfold. Collaboration between humans and their interaction with technology will be evaluated as one of the most effective ways to make technology better, increase the effectiveness of people and accelerate technology development process. 

This workshop is designed for experienced field operators, production technologists and engineers and various technical people whose daily tasks require a good understanding of all aspects of upstream operations and economics including artificial lift performance analysis, automation and facility operations. 


08:30 Coffee and Registration

08:45 Introduction and upstream operating costs and how they impact field profitability, led by the workshop leader with participation by the attendees.

09:00 Electrification: understanding cost of powering upstream operations and technology involved

09:30 Lost productivity: how to identify invisible opportunities. Participants will help the workshop leader to create a hit list and evaluate what to do next

10:00 Coffee and networking break

10:35 Data vs. Information: evaluating downhole analytics as a starting point for developing fully autonomous upstream operations

11:05 Collaboration: the least appreciated component of improving technology. We will evaluate how to design an automation ecosystem that includes humans as the most important components to drive technology developments of machine learning technology.

11:30 Key Takeaways

11:40 Extended Questions and Discussion

12:00 Close of Morning Workshop and Lunch

Pre-conference Workshop B – 30th January 2023


Led by George Robertson, Facilities Engineering AdvisorChevron

Understanding how to preserve and protect operational technology systems in the oil and gas industry

Cybersecurity is needed beyond the cloud, mainly to ensure operational technology systems keep running, to avoid losing productivity, and more importantly profits. Similarly to the cloud’s cybersecurity solutions, many OT/Control system solutions come tailored and/or off the shelf, so uncovering which is more relevant to each well-site is necessary.

This workshop will focus on:

  1. An introduction to cybersecurity in OT/ and control systems
  2. Understanding and prioritizing cybersecurity needs in OT/Control systems
  3. The differences between tailored cybersecurity and off-the-shelf cybersecurity options


14:30 - 15:00 Introduction and objective exploration session, led by the workshop leader

Post-conference Workshop A – 2nd February 2023


Workshop Leader: Ruzbeh Homji, Co Founder and CEOMechademy Inc

What's new with AI and machine learning for predictive maintenance; and overcoming data availability & integration hurdles for enhanced outcomes?

This workshop will cover two topics. The workshop will begin with a discussion on the early detection of equipment failures using AI, Machine learning, and physics to reduce equipment downtime, optimize maintenance, and increase overall profitability. 
The workshop's focus will then shift to understanding different kinds of data sources that can increase the predictive analytics capabilities of companies and discusses ways of integrating them as well as strategies for overcoming lack of data as it can be a significant barrier to the adoption of new technologies.

This workshop will focus on:

  1. Providing a deeper dive into the details of predictive maintenanc
    a. Exploring different predictive analytics technologies
    b. Understanding the specificities of how they function
    c. Success stories with predictive maintenance for upstream & midstream rotating equipment
  2. Analyzing how much data-integration issues hold companies back from increasing productivity and profits
    a. Understanding the potential data sources that can be used to improve predictive analytics outcomes
    b. Investigating solutions to data availability and integration issues
