The face of well site operations is fast changing as operators navigate through the ‘digital oilfield age’ and introduce new technologies across well sites and embrace the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT). As operators adjust to a lower oil price market, new initiatives towards more efficient and cost effective operations have become essential in order to remain profitable in a low-margin business. While automation has reduced OpEx and CapEx costs and helped producers to survive in a low-price market, operators are now challenged with the growing risks associated with complexities of the digital oilfield.
With new developments in well site technologies and technical know-how, recent advancements in automation offer new hope for producers looking for operational efficiencies under challenging market conditions, and to better manage their well sites. The Well Site Automation 2018 conference is set to become North America’s leading exhibition and conference exclusively for shale operators and technology experts, to present new solutions in well site automation and IoT applications for pre-existing wells and new operations.
