Past event: Digitalization in Oil and Gas Canada 2022 Conference

The Only Digitalization-focused Conference for the Canadian Energy Sector

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the Oil and Gas IIoT Sensors market estimated at US$659.1 Million in the year 2020, is projected to reach a revised size of US$892 Million by 2026 as per global industry analysts, inc.

The global energy transition could create 170,000 jobs in Canada and contribute $61 billion to Alberta's GDP by 2050, according to a recent study released by provincial economic development groups.

We are pleased to return in 2022 with the 7th Annual Digitalization in Oil and Gas Canada Conference. Once again, attendees will gather to learn from digital pioneers who are shaping the future of the technological landscape, exchange ideas with like-minded peers and network with leading solution providers.

Technologies such as IoT, machine learning, AI, digital twins, drones, automation, edge computing and blockchain will be highlighted at this conference, with several focussed themes on Clean-Tech and GHG reduction, Position data and data analytics, Digital transformation, 5G and private networks and more.
