LiveWorx 17 features a new Educational Track dedicated to the Oil & Gas industry.  Be sure to fuel up on a great lineup of technical training and education, along with hands on tech demos and fun experiences in the Xtropolis Expo Hall

Experts from Amalto Technologies, ANSYS, Transocean, PTC and more will be presenting on a variety of tech topics.  Here’s a sample of some of the Oil & Gas Sessions on tap:

On Internet of Things and Big Data Enabling Smart, Connected Products in Offshore O&G
Tuesday, May 23, 9:30-10:15am

This presentation shows the journey that Transocean has taken in its IoT and Big Data Strategy.

If You Can’t Measure It, You Can’t Manage It
Tuesday, May 23, 10:30am-11:15pm

Connecting to "things"in an industrial environment can be difficult. Yet connection is critical to Operations and the ability to make smarter business decisions-if you can't measure it, you can't manage it. You'll learn about the complexities of communications in the Oil & Gas industry, including devices, networks, data, and the various applications that need field data to realize the power of the Industrial Internet of Things.

Automation of Order-to-Cash Process in Oil & Gas Water Management Services
Tuesday, May 23, 3:15-4:00pm

Around 20 billions barrels of water are produced every year onshore US from more than 1.5 millions oil and gas wells. This water is stored in tanks, requiring about 100 million truck rotations to recycle it. Each rotation involves a full Order-to-Cash process including a Service Request, a Field ticket, an Invoice and a Payment between the water hauler and the producer. This largely manual, paper-based process is hugely inefficient and costly at at a time when the industry is in great need of efficiency through automation. We will discuss how IoT on water tanks combined with a central integration B2B cloud platform can save money and optimize operations.

Real Life Digital Twins
Tuesday, May 23, 6:30-6:45pm

Using simulation is a critical part of evaluating multiple designs and operating scenarios prior to building prototypes. The emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) enables a connected simulation-based model of a product or process, known as a simulation-based digital twin. Data derived from the sensors connected to the physical product or process can provide real-time boundary conditions for the digital twin. In addition, the digital twin provides data and insights in the absence of sensors. The digital twin can help determine the root cause of performance problems, evaluate various performance optimization and maintenance strategies, and improve bottom line by perfecting the next generation of products and processes. In this presentation, a real-life digital twin of a motored pump system will be demonstrated showing how to utilize twins for efficient and accurate root cause analysis and corrective actions.

Why is “The Edge” Important for the Promise of IIoT in Oil & Gas
Wednesday, May 24, 11:15am -12:00pm

Conceptually, the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) have been discussed at great lengths over the past few of years. “Why IIoT for Oil & Gas?” has been asked, use cases have been explored, and implementations are underway. The shift from concept to implementation is now sparking new discussions. Users and systems integrators are asking the “what” and “how” of IIoT, wondering what technology is best and how integration will work between various applications.
