“The Digital Oilfield” will highlight three topics: deployed digital technologies; next-generation disruptive technologies and new business models; and critical security and risk factors. A concluding scenario planning seminar will provide a framework for companies building longer-term strategies around digital technology adoption.

Confirmed speakers include but are not limited to: Raymond Smelley, CIO at Chevron; Bill Johnson, CTO at DCP Midstream; Jim Claunch, VP at Statoil; and Bill Johnson, CTO at DCP; as well as executives from cutting edge oil-tech ventures like Google Energy, C3IoT, and Invatare AI.

Commander Kirk Lippold USN (ret.) will deliver an inspiring opening keynote about the nexus of energy security and national security, and Mark Mills will discuss Shale 2.0 and its global implications. Other event highlights include: Shark-Tank-Lite, a pitch competition that features ten proven energy-technology startups; a ceremony announcing the winner of the “Energy Writer of the Year, 2017”; and complimentary Whiskey & Wine Tasting (Balcones and Hess).

“The rapid adoption of new digital technologies by the oil and gas sector is fueling a historic market-driven revolution,” said Eric Vettel, President of the American Energy Society. “However, like most revolutions, change is chaotic, and not all of the adopted solutions are rational. Those who lead the next generation of this industry have a deep understanding of the disruptive technologies that enhance efficiency, improve productivity, and provide security. Others will find their companies left behind. In response to overwhelming demand by our Members throughout this sector, we are pleased to host a conference that highlights first-mover insights and practical, value-driven solutions.”
