When We Meet - We Learn and Drive Results - We Lead
Dear Petroleum Industry Personnel:
This late May's 15th annual conference was exciting and upbeat. 2011 reawakened the importance and
value of meeting face-to-face with your industry peers who are shaping the future of petroleum data
management in challenging times.
We are proud to be “connecting the dots” to keep you ahead of the curve on critical developments
with petroleum data integration, information and data management.
Our conference theme for 2012 is "Advances, Achievements and Developments in Petroleum Data and
and Information Management and Integration".
The oil and gas industry remains at a critical juncture of responding to exploding queries which are
more complex from more E&P personnel using more communication and hardware tools to
access a broader range of data to make quality data driven decisions. All the stakeholders need to
integrate and collaborate more than ever before to be successful in providing enterprise-wide solutions
for their technical and financial people.
Data equipment, storage, protection, security, architecture, and many more areas come into play as
the industry has to handle a whole new dimension of scale in their companies. The demands are great.
The stakes are high. Without improved solutions, uncertainty and ambiguity will plague good data
Each year we hear leading speakers sharing real world solutions for issues of data quality, data transfer and
integration, improving search and access, and other critical presentations. Companies will be
discussing cutting-edge advances for business workflow and best practices for data management.
Data sets are growing for all upstream functions, including G&G, drilling, reservoir, production,
field, real-time functions, regulatory, financial, and record administration. All these factors
make the need for cost effective data and information management and integration of data
ever more critical.
This year’s conference looks at keeping focus and advancing petroleum data management
for enterprise success in challenging times. Papers come from around the globe and address
real problems and solutions. Operators, vendors, government and standards associations
are making presentations during this two and one-half day power packed event. Presentations
have the user, manager, technician, programmer, geologist, geophysicist, and engineer in mind.
You get the complete picture that facilitates the type of professional discussions needed in today’s
complex data systems management. The conference continues to be acclaimed for handling the
discussion with balance.
We invite you to bring your team and multiply your company’s benefits. Also meet with
exhibitors who are leading efforts to improve data and information management, thereby
leveraging your time to maximize benefits and your return on investment!
This conference is simply the most power-packed, professional, and best value cornerstone
event of the industry - now in its 16th year dedicated to the facilitation and advancement of
the petroleum data and information management community. When this community meets,
they change the world of petroleum data integration, data and information management!
We look forward to seeing you in Houston!
