We were excited to attend the first major Oil and Gas conference for the industry since the lifting of COVID related travel restrictions, with more than 2,000 delegates pouring through the Brisbane Conference and Exhibition Centre last week.
In keeping with the theme “Positive Energy for a Changing World”, there was a heavy emphasis on the environment via the presentations from the major producers and it was clear that technologies such as digital twins will play a vital role in addressing the challenges that will inevitably come with the energy transition.
Western Australian deputy premier and minister for state development Roger Cook was in attendance and visited the RemSense team and was interested to find out about this rapidly developing visualisation technology which has been developed in WA.
The case for digital twins is supported by the strong focus on ensuring assets can be safely and effectively managed through their entire lifecycle, from discovery and development through to decommissioning; this was evident throughout the conference.
Decommissioning was particularly topical given the new Federal legislation that aims to ensure taxpayers never have to foot the bill for the closure and rehabilitation of energy operations.
It was great to be able to share the conference with our Queensland based partner Qteq, with our collective energies put to educating a varied audience to the benefits and use cases of digital twins within the Oil and Gas Industry.
“From RemSense’s point of view, it was a great conference, and it was clear that technology will play a big part in the energy transition,” Chief Digital Officer Anthony Roe said. “The face-to-face interaction was invaluable, thank you to the APPEA team for facilitating such a great event.”
