Digitalization and optimization of oilfield assets have emerged as principal cost-cutting mechanisms in the wake of our new era, as oil and gas companies continue to face threats to efficiency, sustainability and profitability. Well integrity, enhanced oil recovery, manufacturing execution systems, cloud computing – such digital applications are capable of uniting real-time data with advanced analytics to improve decision-making and boost efficiency and sustainability.

Africa Oil & Power in partnership with Microsoft will be hosting “Leveraging the Power of Technology for Oilfield Optimization” webinar where we will generate strategies for the productive implementation of innovative, cost-cutting technologies in the Angolan and Sub-Saharan context, as the need to allocate capital to assets with the highest returns and operational efficiencies becomes more pressing.
