Webinar Series:
Upstream Oil & Gas combats COVID-19 and the 2020 Oil Price Crash

Episode 3: The Future of the Oilfield

Though the oil industry has been through price crashes before, the unusual environment in which oil companies are having to work in has likely shifted the industry indefinitely. This final episode will examine the value of experience and why employers are now looking for quality of experience over quantity. The panellists will explore which jobs will be most valuable off the back of the 2020 crash, as well as how to train a diversified workforce and communicate technology solutions to different levels of ability across the company.

Episode 2: How Working Remotely Has Changed the Face of the Industry

Using less hands to produce more had been in the pipeline for many operators already; now decision-makers are being forced to put these solutions into action. This episode will explore what working from home means for the upstream industry. Is this a permanent change moving forward or just a temporary challenge? How can the production engineer work from home effectively? Will remote operations and minimum-manning become the new normal?

Episode 1: Driving Short-Term Efficiencies

The oil price crash is upending global markets, and the industry is being forced to optimize efficiencies - and fast. Experts say oil prices will remain volatile for at least 6 months after the pandemic. The first episode of this 3-part series focuses on how you can drive the most value from your existing wells and facilities in a low oil price environment without additional costs. The panellists will also discuss why digital is no longer the expensive add-on but the business-saving essential and explain how you can get to scale using less people and more data.
