Special Session "Technical Leadership in the Era of Change”

"We are on the edge of change comparable to the rise of human life on Earth" believes Vernor Vinge, American mathematician and science fiction author. This is the era of a transitioning world, with industry leaders being established together with the world-scale leaders. Technical leadership today will yield enormous advantages for companies in the future.

Top experts of Shell, Gazprom Neft and Salym Petroleum will share their views on:

  • how the new technologies are shaping the landscape of the oil industry today;
  • what's in store for tomorrow and the day after;
  • how fundamental science is helping to develop the business;
  • when the ASP technology of oil enhancement will create a new segment in the oil and chemical industry;
  • which drilling and operating technologies are coming to Russia in the next decade.

These are only a few of the topics that we will be covering. Exciting presentations, live interaction with the audience, virtual reality, a special guest and much more at the special session supported by Salym Petroleum.
