Welcome to DDOG 2021: Optimizing Operations with Digital

For the first time in its history, Oil & Gas was forced to STOP, take note, and reimagine how upstream operations are run.

Reuters Events: Data Driven Oil & Gas 2021 is here to pull you out of the downturn with the latest in digital innovation. Through real-life case studies, live debates and interactive workshops, this event is designed to streamline operations and ease communications across the whole of upstream.

Run over two days, this technical summit is set to inspire a decade of action and prepare the sector for Industry 4.0, with diverse voices from around the word bringing passion, experience and expertise to meet increasing energy demand whilst accommodating new sustainability goals.

When the world was in disarray, digital was there to fall back on. Now it is here to breakdown siloes, reduce downtime and increase the bottom line.

2020 used digital to survive. 2021 will use digital to thrive.
