Operational Excellence in Energy, Chemicals and Resources Summit

May 30-June 1, 2022- Calgary, AB, Canada

Planning for the Operational & Organizational Impact of Digital Transformation and Decarbonization.

Operational Excellence. What does it mean in today's business climate?

The global pandemic and economic crisis has put an even stronger emphasis on the importance of operational excellence. Yet as energy and resources companies respond and adapt to the new normal, many are redefining what operational excellence means to them. While Operational Excellence is still about having efficient, safe and agile operations...

Its also about being resilient in the face of disruption. About having an engaged, empowered workforce. About being a trailblazer for Net Zero.

Now in its 9th year, the Operational Excellence in Energy, Chemicals & Resources Summit brings together 200 senior level executives to the BMO Center May 30 - June 1, 2022. Global industry innovators will each share their own transformation journey including crucial insights on how to:
  • Scale "scarce skillsets": Leverage experts such as reliability and engineering across multiple sites
  • Unlock new value fast by zeroing in on the most promising operational innovation opportunities
  • Leverage digital tools to help your ESG agenda
  • Accelerate sustainability with digital twins
  • Understand the connection between organizational optimization and profitability
  • Leverage connected worker tools to keep your frontline workers safe, mobile and efficient
  • Enhance operational resilience and build a culture of operational excellence
  • Build cyber security consciousness and discipline among your employees and contractors
  • Improve current processes and streamline your operations to meet today's environmental regulations and achieve sustainability goals
  • Make your data mobile and reduce rework, non-productive time and time to decision
  • Create a high reliability culture
