Speaker: Katya Casey, Actus Veritas Managing Director and 2018 GSH Honorary Membership Awardee

What is the value of experienced human capital in an automated environment?  
In this session, we will discuss the use of big data, analytics, machine learning and other recently popular digital initiatives in upstream oil and gas projects. Optimization of repetitive processes is an obvious candidate for the established assets, but what can be done in exploration where each basin presents a new set of issues and challenges?   We will cover aspects such as: 
What is repetitive and what is not in Exploration Workflows
Machine learning versus human capital development in the E&P organization
Spatial data as a foundation in E&P workflows
Data transformation requirements from exploration into production
Big Data in Exploration

Several case studies and examples will be available for discussion.  Through these talking points, we will engage the audience in a lively and productive discussion.
