Digitalisation is a topic that has captured the attention of top management across the world. Its message is that recent advances in information technology, artificial intelligence and statistics can change radically the way we do business. This also means that existing companies will need to digitalise in order to adapt to these changes and survive. This session will present what digitalisation means for the natural resources industries in Norway and Brazil. We will consider the continuities between digitalisation and previous work in automation, integrated operations and optimisation. At the same time, we will identify the specific features of digitalisation that are radically new in the oil and gas industry. We believe that digitalisation is an essential tool for enabling the oil and gas supply chain to cope with a continuing period of low oil prices and squeezed margins.
