Why Asset Integrity in Oil and Gas DigiConference:

Asset integrity and their management systems are critical to the safe and smooth operations of oil and gas facilities and installations, from oil fields and offshore platforms to pipelines and refineries.

Although asset integrity rarely makes headlines, except in cases of catastrophic failures, this is an integral part of all operations of the energy industry and no operation can run smoothly without it.

Market research firm ReportLinker said in an April 2021 report that it expected the asset integrity management services market in oil and gas alone to register a CAGR of about 8.67% through 2025, due to rising demand for oil in coming years and the use of assets such as offshore platforms, rigs, and pipelines beyond their design life. Asset integrity for oil fields alone could be worth US$22.87 billion by 2027, according to Fortune Business Insights.

With this in mind, the Asset Integrity in Oil & Gas DigiConference, taking place on 7th September 2021, will play host to the leading influencers and decision makers in the field, sharing insights and best practices on how to effectively manage their assets to deliver value, as well as showcasing the latest technological advancements and innovative solutions to tackle current and future challenges.
