Kuala Lumpur
ADAX, Bangsar South

The first day of our 7th Kuala Lumpur conference in October 2018 will focus on how better digital technology can improve profitability at organisations.

The purpose of our forum is to explore ways that Malaysia oil and gas companies are leading the world in their use of digital technology and data (day one), and the opportunities for individuals to help Malaysia keep on top (day two).

The second day (agenda here) focusses on opportunities for individuals.

We are organising the event in partnership with - Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation

Topics we plan to cover on the first day include:

- getting value from old documents
- improved monitoring of reservoir performance
- making better decisions about wells
- making production reporting and regulatory compliance easier
- success stories from data management projects

- managing well head data
- managing asset integrity
- optimising production operations
- better management of maintenance
