We’re thrilled to share that over sixty industry executives across more than forty firms attended the 4th Annual Oil & Gas Executive Forum on May 22nd at the Petroleum Club of Downtown Houston for our best event yet.

2019 Executive Forum - PowerAdvocate and Wood Mackenzie

      Wood Mackenzie and PowerAdvocate present at the Executive Forum

Every year, we bring together O&G leaders to facilitate interesting discussions and to provide a platform for operator-led presentations and discussions focused on top-of-mind topics in the industry. This year’s theme was Data and Digital Strategies that Improve Enterprise Value, and the agenda featured topics such as:

  • Company case studies. The SVP of Engineering and Applied Technology at Hunt Oil, CEO at Par Pacific, former VP of Operational Excellence at Equinor, Supply Chain Manager at Repsol, and General Manager of Supply Chain at Chevron each shared perspectives and real examples of the role of strategic data and digital investments in facilitating enterprise growth and value.
  • Supply Chain data insights. A panel conversation among Supply Chain leadership from Enable Midstream, Southwestern Energy, and Shell Oil focused on examples of how Supply Chain is uniquely positioned to provide data insights to drive business results and lower both OpEx and CapEx costs across the value chain.
  • Industry data snapshots. In a joint presentation, event co-hosts PowerAdvocate and Wood Mackenzie shared a perspective on the ability of Lower48 basins to absorb cost risk, a framework for understanding holistic enterprise performance, strategies for identifying opportunities to increase cost buffers, and examples of factors to consider in order to maximize ROIC for operators.

We would like to extend our gratitude and appreciation to all who attended the Executive Forum and contributed to an incredible agenda, engaging conversations, and lively networking sessions.
