MORNING - VIRTUAL PLENARY SESSIONS

KEYNOTE OPENING PANEL

9:10 "Keeping The Most Profitable Wells Producing, Shutting Down Loss Makers & Preparing For The Eventual Upturn" Comparing Multi-Disciplinary Strategies To Respond To The Low Oil Price Across Facilities, Production, Completions & Drilling

  • Assess important factors operators are considering when choosing their well production strategies - shut off well sites or continue operations and adopt a long term approach?
  • Discuss how operators are prioritizing cost cutting measures when deciding in between cutting automation, instrumentation and equipment related OPEX & CAPEX
  • Compare strategies for producers that have both oil and gas assets and how the oil price impact can be offset by profit margins on gas assets in the long term
  • Evaluate production and facilities strategies from operators across different regions and its impact on the workforce if the price remains low for the foreseeable future
