Drilling is the most expensive and arguably the highest-risk activity in the entire upstream oil and gas value chain. Poor execution of drilling activities can be extremely costly, affecting long-term return on investment as well as operations and safety.
Drilling operations are under constant pressure to improve the quality of execution while at the same time reducing costs and risk. Thankfully, digitalization is showing major potential in this field, bringing with it new data-driven technologies and services, and sparking business model innovation.
In this session, we’ll sit down with Eirik Bergsvik, CEO of MHWirth, a leading global provider of first-class drilling solutions and services, to discuss how digitalization creates value for the company - and how making data do more enables MHWirth to improve its products and services for its customers.
