Talk Description
The upstream oil and gas industry is facing many challenges including declining existing reserves, new reserves that are difficult to access, aging infrastructure and ever increasing health and safety risks. Many in the industry are looking to intelligent or digital oilfields and integrated operations concepts to address these challenges and are deploying increased connectivity solutions to gain better information about reservoirs and operations. Many benefits are expected and value adding applications are being developed to exploit this newly acquired information. However, there are also downsides.

This new connectivity also opens these systems to security threats such as hackers, viruses, worms and terrorists. Security incidents have already occurred in digital oilfields with hackers disabling safety systems, worms and viruses causing loss of view and loss of control incidents for production and drilling operations.

This presentation examines these issues and looks at some of the incidents experienced and considers how taking an effective cyber security strategy can be a real enabler for digital oilfield initiatives.
