HOUSTON – Halliburton announced its annual Landmark Innovation Forum and Expo (LIFE), the oil and gas industry’s premier business and technology event attracting super majors, independents, national oil companies, service companies and other participants from across the global exploration and production (E&P) value chain.
This year’s forum addresses the challenges that companies face as they navigate a rapidly evolving landscape and how digital technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud and big data analytics are transforming the way business is done.
As companies evaluate strategies and move to reduce costs and optimize production, they will need a greater understanding of the financial, technical and operational segments to be successful in today’s environment.
The event will assemble a diverse group of business and technical experts and industry thought leaders to share ideas on emerging technologies, generate increased collaboration and drive sustainable business value.
The agenda will be delivered through keynote presentations from innovators in oil & gas, digital business and IT alongside a technical program including more than 50 sessions and case studies. The majority of the technical program will be delivered by Landmark customers and members of the E&P community, who will demonstrate how they are creating and sustaining value through and beyond the current cycle. Special sessions including distinguished lectures, hands-on workshops, cloud training, a hackathon and poster discussions delivered on the last day by the extended iEnergy® academic, developer, partner and user community. Topics for three days will cover the entire E&P lifecycle and include:
- Innovative science in exploration, reservoir, drilling and production
- Digital E&P transformation in cloud, mobility and big data analytics
- Smart and Connected E&P™, software-as-a-service, automation and cloud integration
- OpenEarth™ Community, fostering the industry’s only open platform for domain specific application development
