Ask the Expert Session: Synergy Unleashed - Harnessing AI And Technology For Augmented Decision-Making And Enhanced Knowledge Management

Monday, 12 February  |  1430–1530 hours  |  Session Duration: 60 minutes  |  Location: Hall 1

By leveraging advanced algorithms and machine learning techniques, organizations can process vast amounts of data and extract valuable insights. This enables more informed decision-making, as AI systems can analyse complex patterns and predict outcomes with greater accuracy. Additionally, digital tools facilitate efficient data organization, retrieval, and sharing, promoting collaboration and innovation within businesses. With the ability to automate repetitive tasks and enhance cognitive capabilities, AI and technology are revolutionizing decision-making processes and transforming knowledge management practices, leading to improved efficiency, and productivity.

Proposed Questions

  • How can leaders effectively harness the power of AI to augment decision-making processes while ensuring that the insights and expertise of their team are utilized?
  • How can organizations leverage technology and digital tools to enhance knowledge transfer and initiatives?
  • What are the best practices for knowledge management systems?







Ask the Expert Session: Successful Projects

Tuesday, 13 February  |  16:00–17:00  |  Session Duration: 60 minutes  |  Location: Hall 1

Project 1

The world’s first gas production trial from a subsea gas hydrate deposit - Integration of science and deepwater operations.

Speaker: Koji Yamamoto, Project lead, Vice President, JOGMEC

To verify production technologies for subsea gas hydrates, which are unconventional natural gases in solid form, JOGMEC conducted a series of DST-type offshore production tests using MODU in Japanese waters with many scientists and petroleum technology operators. To obtain scientific data, the project was associated with intensive data and sample acquisition programs and brand-new oil production technologies that supported deepwater operations. An integrated approach of science, technology, and public and private sectors led to the success of the project.




Project 2

NESR CO2 Injection: Unique Design as a Technology Breakthrough to PERTAMINA CCUS Milestone in Indonesia (3 Successful Injection Projects in 2022-2023)

Speaker: Suha Saad Alsaif, Sustainability Director, NESR

As an enabler to speed up the implementation of CCUS in Indonesia, PERTAMINA (Indonesia’s National Oil Company) initiated several CO2 injection Projects within the 2022-2023 period. This technology implementation not only aims to assess CO2 storage in subsurface conditions but also to enhance field production through CO2 Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) application.

NESR has been chosen as the technology provider for this first PERTAMINA CO2 injection campaign in Indonesia. The methodology and execution are unique and involve fit-for-purpose design to achieve the objectives and mitigate CO2 injection challenges that are distinct based on subsurface characteristics.

Up to 500 Tons of CO2 per well were successfully injected in 3 wells, achieving the expected result that is valuable for well productivity, subsurface study, and operational Lessons learned as well as stimulating the CCUS project's growth and commitments in other areas within Indonesia.





Ask the Expert Session: Experts Debate - What is the Adequate Pace of Energy Transition?

Wednesday, 14 February  |  14:00–15:00  | Session Duration: 60 minutes  |  Location: Hall 1

This is a critical topic to address the rate at which we are addressing climate change and achieving sustainable development. In this debate, we will go over the factors that determine the optimal speed of transitioning towards more sustainable and green operations. It examines technological advancement, economic implications, and social acceptance. The feasibility and scalability of sustainable technologies, economic viability, and social equity are key considerations in determining the pace of the transition. This debate will holistically examine these factors.
