American Energy Society to Host “The Digital Oilfield” at Minute Maid Park, Houston, Texas


Premier event for energy executives leading the next generation of oil and gas, November 13 and 14

The American Energy Society, a non-partisan and independent network of more than 450,000 energy professionals, will convene leading oil and gas executives to discuss new technological innovations that are having a profound impact on the entire industry, from exploration and production to efficiencies and operations.

Scheduled for November 13-14 in Houston’s Union Station at Minute Maid Park – home field for the Houston Astros - “The Digital Oilfield” will highlight three topics: deployed digital technologies; next-generation disruptive technologies and new business models; and critical security and risk factors. A concluding scenario planning seminar will provide a framework for companies building longer-term strategies around digital technology adoption.

Confirmed speakers include but are not limited to: Yanni Charalambous, CIO at Oxy Petroleum; Raymond Smelley, CIO at Chevron; Bill Johnson, CTO at DCP Midstream; Jim Claunch, VP at Statoil; Todd Abbot, COO at Pioneer Natural; Ryan Sitton, Texas Railroad Commission; as well as executives from cutting edge digital-technology companies like DarkTrace, C3IoT, and Invatare AI.

Commander Kirk Lippold USN (ret.) will deliver an inspiring opening keynote about the nexus of energy security and national security (Commander Lippold, USS Cole, attacked by terrorists in Yemen, 2000). Other event highlights include: Shark-Tank-Lite, a pitch competition that features ten proven energy-technology startups; a ceremony announcing the winner of the “Energy Writer of the Year, 2017”; and complimentary Whiskey & Wine Tasting (Balcones and Hess).

“The rapid adoption of new digital technologies by the oil and gas sector is fueling a historic market-driven revolution,” said Eric Vettel, President of the American Energy Society. “However, like most revolutions, change is chaotic, and not all of the adopted solutions are rational. Those who lead the next generation of this industry have a deep understanding of the disruptive technologies that enhance efficiency, improve productivity, and provide security. Others will find their companies left behind. In response to overwhelming demand by our Members throughout this sector, we are pleased to host a conference that highlights first-mover insights and practical, value-driven solutions.”
