Welcome to Oil and Gas IT Week Conference and Exhibition

In the last few decades, Information Technology has had a great impact on transforming the oil & gas industry, from wellheads to executive headquarters. The industry depends on IT for accurate and real-time transmission of data, automated responses, accessibility of data and information across functional teams, as well as improved tracking and full mobility of its assets and resources. The role of IT and its expansion in the oil and gas industry has helped the fraternity reach new heights of excellence with respect to operational success. Given that today, everything right from exploration to drilling and refining depends heavily on digitally enhancing the assets, all departments across the hydrocarbon industry need to learn upcoming IT technologies, implement best practices being followed globally and ensure that they sustain and manage their day-to-day operations successfully using IT as an effective tool.

Over the years, IQPC has continually partnered with the industry’s experts to create invaluable conferences and summits to capture the latest trends in IT and communication and address the resultant challenges. Recognising that the leading solution providers create and cater for the vast range of such technologies, and with the oil & gas industry as a whole, engaged and interested in IT developments, IQPC has combined several important industry topics to create the Oil and Gas IT Week Conference and Exhibition.

The Conference will begin by a plenary session where leading experts will discuss:

  1. Expanding role of IT and communication in the oil & gas and energy sector
  2. How to derive higher profits, enhanced productivity and reduced HSE issues through IT advancements
  3. How to protect assets from IT security threats
  4. The future of IT in oil & gas: Beyond 2020
