THE Must Attend, Strategic Decision-Making Event For The Digitalization For Upstream Oil & Gas Industry

Renowned as the meeting place for digital solution providers and upstream professionals, DDDP is primed to launch your company into the next decade. The 2020 agenda stands to tackle the core challenges E&P companies face in leveraging digital solutions to boost productionreduce downtime and increase the bottom-line.

This year has presented the perfect storm for the upstream industry. A global pandemic coinciding with the largest oil price crash of the century created one of the most challenging environments the upstream industry has faced.

Whilst the full ramifications remain to be seen, one thing is clear: there has never been a more pressing need for the industry to come together, take stock, share ideas and embrace the new ways of working with open arms.

As the saying goes “Necessity is the mother of invention”. At a time when upstream has been forced to work remotely, remote working technologies, cloud capabilities and other digital solutions have come to the rescue.

In these difficult and uncertain times, we are committed to continue to provide business critical insights and analysis for our community. Although our ability to hold DDDP 2020 in person has been impacted, we have decided not to cancel, but to reinvent as a virtual event, bringing you the full power of DDDP 2020 right to your fingertips.

Digital is no longer an expensive add-on. Digital is the 2020 business-saving essential.
