Digitalisation, in its various forms, is slated to transform the landscape of oil & gas operations. This is achieved by adding new game-changing efficiencies and transcending barriers to boost production while containing costs simultaneously.  As the industry shifts paradigms towards more complex fields after successful exploitation of the relatively “easy oil”, effective digitalisation is the need of the hour.

Participants will gain first-hand exposure to new efficiencies added through digitalisation while honing digital engineering skills, which are required to boost competitiveness.

This Applied Digitalisation for Oil & Gas training course will highlight:

  • Framework of the digital oilfield
  • Hands-on modern cyber model design and optimisation
  • Digitalising safely: cybersecurity
  • Organisational & behavioral aspects of digitalisation
  • Machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques
  • Digital twin applications

By the end of this Energy Training Centre training course, participants will learn to:

  • Appreciate the cyber representation of physical assets and its implications
  • Effectively evaluate modern information flow and control models
  • Hone digital engineering and fourth industrial revolution (4IR) skills
  • Prepare the workplace for the coming generation of digital natives
  • Deal with the convergence of operational technology and information technology
  • Become familiar with digital connectivity and its exponential growth

This Applied Digitalisation for Oil & Gas training course will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information and innovative methods presented.  This includes presentation of theoretical concepts, team and individual exercises, case study analyses, educational videos and real-life applications. Participants in this training course will receive a thorough training on the subjects covered by the training course outline. 

The delegates will also learn how to develop a modern information flow and control model for a real field.  The delegates will also be acquainted with the design of digital systems and defend the decisions made.

As more instruments are added to the oilfield, the digital industry phenomena will dominate and inevitably result in tectonic shift in workplace digital skills requirements. Digital successful companies will witness more hybrid engineers who possess both digital and technical asset skills. Furthermore, the digital engineers understand and mitigate the implications of unintended risks.

The delegates will acquire knowledge and hands-on experience to become more effective developers, evaluators and users of digital platforms. They will learn strategies to perform quality check on digital systems and make recommendations to embark on opportunities and proactively control predicted risks.
