Theme: The theme for the meeting will be “Measurement Challenges in the Petroleum Industry”. A team comprised of PERF companies will build the agenda around measurement challenges with environmental media (air, water and land) and health & safety.

Developments to technology and regulation are driving considerable change in the Petroleum industry; new sensor technology is available for measuring and monitoring GHG and VOCs; new regulations require careful data analysis and interpretation. Developing “Confidence” in data should be a cross-cutting theme for the event, embedding measurements into end-to-end process and decision making through use of digital technologies and infrastructure. This includes:

  1. “Collection” – improved efficiency of sensors
  2. “Connection” – improved and safe communication between devices
  3. “Comprehension” – complete information including provenance, uncertainty and weighting
