Yokogawa is pleased to sponsor and exhibit at the Future of the North Sea: Implementing Your Digital Road Map conference and exhibition which will be held in Aberdeen, from 29 - 30 November 2022.
The North Sea Energy sector needs a fundamental shift into the digital age. In the face of a rapidly evolving technological landscape, developing game-changing digital solutions, re-evaluating existing operating models, and utilising data to transform exploration efforts, have been brought to the forefront of industry discussion.
As digital transformation expands its reach across the industry, bringing with it digital drilling and production technology, operational efficiency, data-driven operating models, opportunities in subsurface CCS storage, distributed ledger solutions, lower per barrel production costs, and revolutionised supply chains, now is the time to transform your business model and embrace the full benefits that the digital oilfield has to offer.
Alongside the countless solutions brought by digital transformation, the transition to a digital industry also brings with it several associated risks. Cyber security is one of the most pressing challenges facing the industry to date. Meet Rob Turner as he discusses Cyber Security at the conference. Key themes will include protecting critical infrastructure from cyber threats, encouraging security awareness across the industry, employing digital technologies without causing risk to operations, data protection and ensuring critical information remains secure, trusting machine-driven operations, and developing robust control systems to combat cyber vulnerabilities.
