Digital Transformation Area

Digital transformation stands as the cornerstone of innovation and efficiency and is revolutionizing industries and the energy sector.  This year we are delighted to include the Digital Transformation Area in our Annual Conference and Exhibition.

The DTA offers a theatre programme and opportunities for exhibitors and other professionals to showcase their products and services through technical talks, mini workshops, and panel discussions over three days. The Digital Transformation Area seeks to explore and showcase forward-thinking, technology, and workflows, through a programme of presentations alongside the main EAGE technical agenda. The synergies between digital advancement and the energy sector will be a defining factor in achieving a more efficient, reliable, and sustainable energy future with an eye on innovation and cost.

In addition, this year the Spotlight Series An open-source regulator shines a light on the value creation made possible through the Norwegian Offshore Directorate (NOD) for the energy industry and its role in shaping the industry of the future. Presentations from both the NOD and industry will showcase the ripple effects to innovation and society.

Each day of the DTA theatre programme will start with a ‚ÄúLightning Talks‚ÄĚ session. These sessions are a blend of technical and commercial talks by participating exhibitors and academic institutions with the following topics: Academia innovation, AI and ML, Digital Subsurface, Digital towards the transition. Please note that these talks are NOT part of the official technical programme or conference proceedings.
