Connecting people to data – how operational intelligence improves upstream oil and gas operations

Talk Description.
Every well in your field is a business on its own, and the data each one provides is as important as the resource it draws from the earth. Your engineers rely on operational intelligence to monitor each well’s performance. Your IT, Finance and Operations teams rely on it to fuel smarter decisions about your investment portfolio. But in the modern oilfield, a single engineer is responsible for thousands of wells. And IT systems are better suited for capturing and storing data than they are producing insights. So how do we connect people to data to gain insight? And how can we leverage operational intelligence technology to improve and optimize upstream oil and gas operations?
P2 Energy Solutions Empowers the People Who Power the World. Oil and Gas and Mining professionals, who are focused on solving tough challenges, rely on P2 software to optimize their business performance.
