Innovation Value Chain Dr. Fred Moavenzadeh, President, Masdar Institute of Technology Oil and gas has had a pioneering role in the development of new technologies. There is a tremendous scientific, technological, managerial, and financial, innovations that has been developed and implemented. Many sources of energy that were completely incapable now are marketable. The most recent example is Sand Oil in Canada and Shale gas (fracking) that is basically revolutionizing the market for oil and gas. Similarly, the oil and gas industry is also interested in joining forces with renewable energy because many oil and gas industries consider themselves in the energy market rather than oil and gas. The presentation will discuss what Masdar Institute is doing in developing human capacity in the region of this world. Our students are entrusted and motivated to move to toward innovation and entrepreneurship.

Performance Improvement Using Big Data in Oil & Gas Drazen Nikolic, Partner Ernst & Young Germany Currently there is so much buzz around Big Data and the expected wonders that will be achievable using it. Everyone is asking the same questions; is it real, which initiatives should I start, what is its expected role and what will happen if we do not pursue any Big Data initiative? The goal of our presentation is to deal with the myths and reality regarding the applicability of Big Data and its promised benefits in the Oil & Gas industry. We will focus on the identification of tactical solutions for short-term improvements (cost, process efficiency, etc.) as well as strategic areas, which could be realized over a longer period of time with significant impact on the overall performance, including process improvements and transformation changes. Furthermore, most Oil & Gas infrastructure owners are aware of the opportunities resulting from advanced analysis stemming from the merger of production process related data typically gathered in corporate systems. However, only few of them actually use these capabilities to improve performance of the production process in their plants. Despite the already existing systems, which operate in both IT and Operational Technologies environments, they are, at the moment, used predominantly in the batch manufacturing industry as opposed to the process industry. Therefore, we will discuss the possible future of production process optimization systems in Oil & Gas and how Big Data is going to influence changes in this market. Drazen Nikolic is Partner at Ernst & Young s Advisory Services. He has over 25 years of international experience shaping Enterprise Intelligence solutions as well as IT strategies for global companies. His focus areas are Information Management Strategy, New Business Models, Implementation of large and complex IT systems and Integrated business solutions with focus on Analytics, Social Media, Portals and Data Management environments.

5 Era of Digital Engineering Richard Arthur, Business Systems Leader IT Planning Team, KOC, Kuwait Digital engineering has finally come of age in the oil and gas industry. The indispensability of digital engineers to enable the increasing number of projects to address the galloping demand for energy is well recognized. However, there are fresh challenges that must be successfully overcome. The digital engineer faces rapidly evolving digital technologies, a new social milieu and sensitivity in local cultures, the urgent need for development of national talent and greater focus on critical infrastructure security and information protection issues. The new generation of digital engineers will have to replace the current generation more rapidly than the industry has experienced in several decades. Accelerated development programs need to be in place as well as mentoring programs for this new generation. This presentation offers some insights that have proven successful in addressing both demographic and digital challenges that can dramatically enhance the bottom-line, boost hydrocarbon production performance, and effectively mitigate project scope change risk.

Maximizing the Probability of Finding and Recovering O&G Through Simulation and Big Data Analysis Yuri Rassokhin, Sales Engineer EMEA, Adaptive Computing With escalating energy costs, there is an urgent need to improve hydrocarbon exploration and recovery. To maximize the probability of finding and recovering O&G, it is critical to predict the nature of oil fields, their locations and the number of wells without expensive drilling. This is done by sophisticated multi-dimensional seismic imaging and very accurate multi-component, multi-scale reservoir simulation, which requires analysis of big data and considerable HPC capability. At Adaptive, we enhance complex, compute-intensive simulations and analyze big data faster, more accurately and most cost effectively giving O&G companies a competitive advantage by improving exploration and recovery. During this session, Adaptive will demonstrate its award-winning Moab optimization and scheduling software and how to perform simulations remotely and analyze big data efficiently by optimizing cloud and HPC environments. Yuri Rassokhin is Sales Engineer for EMEA countries at Adaptive Computing, focusing on HPC and Cloud workload management software implementations. He is a graduate of Moscow State University as mathematician. Since 2007, HPC hardware/software architecture design, and EMEA-wide HPC market trends and business development has been his focus. BYOD Trend or Threat Bahaa Salem, CEH- CHFI LPT, Applications Product Manager EMEA, Global Knowledge Mobile devices come in all shapes and sizes, from smartphones, notebooks and tablets, to the new-breed hybrid convertibles and detachables. While mobility boosts enterprise employee efficiency by delivering anywhere access to business data and systems, it obliterates what s left of the increasingly ineffective corporate network perimeter.many security managers have already discovered the disconcerting implications: less control than ever over enterprise data access from a myriad of consumer devices including a groundswell of bring your own devices (BYODs) and more difficulty determining which devices are accessing which systems and data. Bahaa is an industry-recognized security expert with 10 years of hands-on experience. He is a trainer, speaker, forensic investigator, and security consultant. Bahaa s primary love is cyber security; but, he understands in order to be successful at securing an organization, you must have a detailed understanding of networks and related fields.

He is an expert in the fields of security management, Penetration Testing and loss prevention and investigations. He consults with business owners and managers, insurance agencies, and banking sectors on how to reduce the risk. The Aftermath of a Successful System Implementation Project Asim Hussain, TPL Senior Specialist IT, Kuwait Oil Company The completion of a COTS/ERP software product implementation project leads to the commencement of the new phase of system life cycle the post implementation governance or aftermath of the implemented system. The Total Cost of Ownership of COTS/ERP depends heavily on the post implementation governance mechanism in addition to the approach adopted during the implementation since the shortcomings of the prior phases come to light after using the system. The post implementation governance is critical to sustain the support levels without having any business impact and cost overruns. The identification of additional business requirements need to be carefully addressed keeping in view the best practices and the guidelines of configuring/customizing the software. Any gaps in the governance model may result in complexities, over expenditures, degradation of service levels, delays in meeting business requirements and issue resolution. The presentation will highlight major pitfalls during the implementation and post implementation of that may leads towards process delays and cost overruns. It will also suggests ways to achieve sustained support service levels while maximizing ROI. Asim Hussain is TPL Senior Specialist IT at Kuwait Oil Company.

LCIP, Cert.SS, AIICPD, Dip.Ad.Hyp, SNLP, MNRCBT - Shakti Edwards, BA (Acting) RSAMD, ICCHPCS, NLP Practitioner (SNLP) IT is playing an increasingly important role in facial recognition and fraud prevention but there is still a place for the human factor. You can learn how to apply reliable behavioural science to enhance your EQ skills and recognise what someone is really feeling by observing and calibrating their macro and micro facial expressions. According to the latest report from the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), fraud is estimated to lose the world economy 5%, around $ 3.5 billion per year. In business, making decisions about high stake investments, and key staff appointments, the ability to evaluate credibility is crucial. In this session we would take the participants through a short interactive exercise to demonstrate the reliable indicators of emotions on the face, and the associated muscles, and then check that they can recognise them. if the expression doesn t fit with the words/story, as they are unconscious and thus reliable as they are run by the autonomic nervous system and can t be faked. Dr. Leila Edwards is a leader in the practical applications of behavioral psychology. Formerly a Dean and Director in prestigious universities in the UK and GCC, her research in psychology, education, health, accelerated learning, creativity, and change management led her to play key roles in setting up innovative provision, for which she was honoured with a Women of the West Award.
