Technical Session

Technical Session 1 : Green Chemistry Application in Upstream Industry 

In the realm of the upstream industry, the adoption of green chemistry precedes a transformative shift towards sustainable practices. Embracing eco-friendly methodologies from exploration to extraction, this sector prioritizes environmental preservation alongside operational efficiency. Through the implementation of non-intrusive surveying methods during exploration and the utilization of solvent-free extraction techniques, the industry minimizes its ecological footprint while maximizing resource utilization. By integrating renewable energy sources into extraction processes, the upstream sector underscores its dedication to reducing carbon emissions and promoting ecological balance. These initiatives not only enhance operational efficiency but also reflect a steadfast commitment to fostering a greener and more sustainable future for generations to come. 

Technical Session 2 : Geology and Geophysics Method, Technology, and application for earth resources  

Geology and geophysics (G&G) make significant contributions to sustainability across multiple fronts. Geology and geophysics play a pivotal role in the responsible management of Earth’s resources by identifying and assessing minerals, fossil fuels, and water reservoirs, ensuring their sustainable utilizationThe G&G technology are crucial for developing renewable energy like geothermal, which important in the global transition towards low-carbon economies. The G&G also are instrumental in protecting the environment through the understanding and mitigation of geological hazards and contribute to water resource management and infrastructure planning. 

Technical Session 3: Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, Advance Computation and Applied Mathematics

The convergence of Data Science, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Advanced Computation, and Applied Mathematics is important in fostering a sustainable future, particularly within the context of Upstream Energy and Digitalization. By leveraging these cutting-edge technologies, industries can optimize resource exploration, extraction, and utilization processes while minimizing environmental impact. Data Science enables the analysis of vast datasets to identify trends and patterns, aiding in strategic decision-making for sustainable resource management. AI enhances operational efficiency by automating tasks, optimizing energy production, and reducing waste generation. Advanced Computation provides the computational power necessary for complex simulations and modellingfacilitating predictive analytics for risk assessment and resource optimization. Applied Mathematics forms the theoretical backbone for developing algorithms and models to address challenges in energy exploration, production, and distribution.  

Technical Session 4: Production and Drilling Technology 

These technologies for production and drilling encompass a wide array of tools and techniques utilized within the oil and gas sector to extract hydrocarbon resources and bringing them to the surface. Oil and gas production and drilling technology play a crucial role in advancing sustainability within the industry by minimizing environmental impact, enhancing operational efficiency, and supporting responsible resource management. Through continuous innovation, collaboration, and adherence to best practices, the industry can contribute to a more sustainable energy future while meeting global energy demand.
