Our biggest ever SIS Global Forum has just closed, following one last morning of technical sessions and the announcing of our university competition winner.
The SIS team thanks all attendees, partners and contributors for being a part of it. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Record-Breaking Forum Hails New Era of Collaboration
“By working on common digital foundations for our industry together, we get to the next level faster, free to focus our efforts on where we can truly differentiate and bring value to our stakeholders.”
This year’s SIS Global Forum has attracted a record numbers of visitors – more than 800 – with its most comprehensive program to date. Twelve plenary speeches, a five-track leadership program featuring 39 high-caliber panelists, more than 200 technical presentations, and an immersive exhibition made for a rich program of latest thinking, insight and technology in the E&P industry.
The event theme “The Future is Open” came to life in the many industry collaborations that were either announced at or formed an integral part of this year’s Forum, signaling a new era of collaboration in the oil & gas industry.
Joint Winners: Onome Okobiebi and Oladipupo Babarinde
“It’s been a fantastic opportunity to take part in the competition and get the chance to join the industry here in Monaco. It’s been a truly enlightening experience. We’ve seen incredible technology and heard from some really inspiring thinkers. We’re taking away a lot of ideas and new ways of doing things - and of course we’re both delighted to have won!”
This afternoon, SIS announced the result of this year’s university competition – and we have two winners! The winning abstracts were submitted by Onome Okobiebi from the University of Benin, laying out a development strategy for the F5000 and G8000 reservoirs in the OBOM field, and Oladipupo Babarinde from the Illinois State Geological Survey, University of Illinois, with a novel application of geocellular modeling in lab-scale studies of injection-induced seismicity. Congratulations and well done to both!
