The key theme of the 5th operations geoscience conference is how the role of the operations geologist will evolve as the oil and gas industry embraces the digital transformation. Operations geologists will be at the heart of this transformation by bringing together digitalisation and geological expertise to improve operational efficiency and promote success.

The organisers invite contributions within all aspects of operations geoscience, with a preferred focus on emerging technologies and advances in the digital oilfield.

Suggested themes include:

  • Machine learning and artificial intelligence applied to planning and drilling a well
  • Digitalisation and “disrupting” current work flows – can digitalisation and data mining generate additional information that will change the role of the operations geoscientist?
  • New analytical technologies and technological advances – case studies of e.g. LWD, wireline or modelling solutions as applied during operations
  • PPFG, geomechanics and surface logging showcasing innovative approaches and surprising outcomes
  • Managing risks and improving safety


Registration is now open. Please note online registrations will close at 12pm on Tuesday 3 November 2020.
