Managing the innovation and technology challenge in oil and gas

Operators and service companies in the upstream oil and gas sector face many technology and innovation challenges in developing existing and future oil reserves to their full potential.

They need to make important investment decisions on technology to enable working in deeper water, develop subsea operations, extend the life of oil and gas fields, and work in increasingly more remote and dangerous fields.

Every oil and gas operator will have different needs depending on their assets, geographical location and business objectives.
