LONDON, October 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

In advance of Digital Oilfields Summit 2013, Oil & Gas IQ is pleased to present exclusive interviews with the event speakers Wendy Valot, Global Knowledge Management Specialist at BP and Hatem Nasr, Senior Advisor, Digital Oilfields and Technology Strategy at Kuwait Oil Company.

In the Big Data era, the digital oilfield - an end-to-end integrated operation system in which real-time data capture helps to optimise everything from production and drilling to completions and safety - is the ultimate expression of technological advancement in the sector. In her interview, Wendy Valot, talks about how the digital oilfield is ineluctably changing the way that oil and gas companies do business.

Hatem Nasr, on the other hand, dispels some of the myths about the challenges associated with moving to a digital oilfield framework. Nasr has led the development of the largest digital oilfield projects in the world. These projects have been acknowledged in the industry as the state-of-the-art and set a new benchmark in digital oilfield technology. The projects' involved deployment on hundreds of wells, budget in the hundred of millions of dollars and involved hundred of engineers and scientists.
