The oil and gas industry is witnessing a new era of progress in digital and related technologies that are transforming operational performance and efficiency and creating renewed opportunity to secure sustainable growth. The industry has a history of developing technical and operational innovations that have forged game-changing growth into new segments such as deep water and shale. This panel will explore the prospects for the next game-changers and what they might look like. Which areas of technological progress offer the most promise to become game-changers for the industry? What form of impact might a game-changer have, for example, in unlocking resources, reducing costs, or changing the nature of work? Would we know a game-changer if we saw one? Could a series of incremental gains over time also constitute a game-changer? Is the industry structured to unlock innovations? Which types of players and partnerships would hold the key?
