Hilton Americas Convention Center, Houston, Texas | Booth 207

September 14-15, 2023

Optelos will be exhibiting and speaking at the 9th Annual Digitalization in Oil and Gas Conference at the Hilton Americas Convention Center in Houston, TX on September 14-15, 2023. This two-day event brings hundreds of global oil and gas technology executives together with the world’s most innovative digital technology companies, like Optelos, to discuss and showcase the latest case studies and solutions in the upstream, midstream and downstream sectors. Registration is free for all oil and gas operators. To further their digitalization in oil and gas efforts, energy enterprises are increasingly turning to drone-captured data to build 3D digital twin models of physical assets to speed asset inspections, reduce inspection costs and improve inspection program safety, utilizing drones to conduct dangerous or difficult inspection activities. Storing, finding, accessing and manipulating the visual drone image data presents challenges, however, given the large file sizes, special licenses often required, and unstructured format of image data. Optelos solves all these problems.
Oil and Gas enterprises are increasingly turning to 3D Digital twins models to reduce costs and improve the accuracy of their turnaround and capital project planning programs. 

Optelos CEO David Tran will be speaking in the IoT track, presenting use case examples that demonstrate how the Optelos platform is being used in digitalization in oil and gas programs to improve turnaround and capital project scoping and planning processes. Optelos will show how enterprises are utilizing these digital twins to conduct remote asset inspections and share their detailed inspection results securely. By walking through real world application use cases, Optelos will highlight the advantages of utilizing drone inspection data and 3D digital twin models, the beneficial results leading companies are generating, and how to get started with minimal investment and internal IT support to prove your own ROI.

“This event was a great system of connecting and networking with like-minded people!”

Optelos CEO David Tran presents at the Energy Drone + Robotics Summit 2023 in Houston, TX on June 12, 2023

The event combines the world’s largest and most senior network of digitalization in oil and gas events for the energy sector, which focuses on five (5) important technology tracks within the oil and gas industry: Edge Computing, Blockchain, IoT, Connectivity, and Digital Twins.

  • IoT in Oil and Gas: Improve operations, reduce costs, and improve efficiency. From real case studies of how IoT is used innovatively in the industry, technical considerations when integrating IoT systems and devices to the latest development in IoT technology.
  • Blockchain in Oil and Gas: Blockchain technology is changing the oil and gas industry. The track, organized in partnership with Blockchain for Energy, will cover the impact of Blockchain on environmental sustainability, asset management, supply chain management, and its use in providing financial transparency and reducing fraud.
  • Digital Twin in Oil and Gas: Digital Twins continue to be a game changer for oil and gas companies. The Digital Twins track will equip you and your company with the insight to make informed and improved data-driven decisions from subsurface modeling and rig design to production, safety, and field resourcing.
  • Edge Computing Technologies in Oil and Gas: Edge computing is widely recognized as a critical tool in bridging the information gap, particularly in remote or offshore locations with unreliable internet connections. With the fast growth of IoT devices in the energy industry, operators and service companies need a flexible infrastructure to manage their data, leverage insights and achieve predictive maintenance. The Edge Computing track will highlight real-world examples of how oil and gas companies successfully implement edge computing solutions, the lessons learned, how distributed computing and AI at the Edge can be applied to operations, and the associated operational benefits.
  • Connectivity in Oil and Gas: As the world becomes more connected, so is the oil and gas industry. Innovations in bandwidth communications, 5G, and LoRa networks are rapidly connecting even the most remote work areas. The Connectivity track will inform you about Communication technologies, cybersecurity and its role in ensuring the confidentiality of data and systems, and how to ensure regulatory compliance.
