Industry to Benefit from Tech Talk Events
Industry Technology Facilitator (ITF) is launching a series of tech talk events to support and promote the developer community and increase interaction with oil and gas operators.
The first of the free events will be held at the Chester Hotel, Aberdeen on Wednesday, June 28 at 5pm.
This event will see Premier Oil’s Tammie Sebire provide an overview of industry needs from an operator perspective. A number of ITF’s Innovation Network technology developers will then host an interactive session to showcase their technology and how they can assist some of the challenges facing the industry.
“If we are going to have a sustainable industry with a lower for longer price then new technology is going to play a vital role in achieving that sustainability,” Dr Patrick O’Brien, CEO of ITF, said in an organization statement.
“We hope these tech talks will increase the dialogue between technology developers and key industry players,” he added.
Tammie Sebire, technical project authority at Premier Oil, said it was even more important than ever for oil and service companies to work together to get things moving in the industry.
“The key focus will be on implementing current and new cost effective technology quickly and not be frightened to challenge existing paradigms. A major area that is a must for collaboration is in decommissioning,” Sebire said in a company statement.
ITF launched its global online Innovation Network last year to raise the profile of oil and gas SMEs direct to its membership of operator and service companies.
