January 26, 2022 - Houston, TX

Over the last twelve months, the oil and gas industry has been under immense pressure to cut costs, manage demand volatility and increase competitiveness through real-time information-based, decision-making.

Edge computing is widely recognized as a critical tool in bridging the information gap, particularly in remote or offshore locations with unreliable internet connections.

With the fast growth of IoT devices in the energy industry, operators and service companies need a flexible infrastructure to manage their data, leverage insights and achieve predictive maintenance. Failure to do so results in inefficiencies that erode productivity, increase safety risks, and drive up costs.

Edge Computing in Oil and Gas (January 26th, 2022, Houston) will once again bring together energy operators, service companies, telecommunications, analysts and edge and IoT solution providers to discuss the latest advances and innovations at the Edge.

This conference, in its fourth year, will look at developments in Edge technologies, products and processes shaping the future of the oil and gas industry. It will also explore the role of edge analytics in lowering cost, driving productivity and managing equipment during upstream, midstream, and downstream oil and gas processing.

Who will attend?

Upstream E&P Operators, Midstream Companies, Petrochemical, Refinery and Processing Plants in addition to EPC and Oilfield Service Companies with the following job titles: 

  • Chief Information Officer, Chief Technology Officer
