Encouraging increased international dialogue, partnerships for growth, the importance of data & digitalisation and taking a strategic look at the supply chain, the Summit will provide a forum to discuss this growing market.

Agenda

“ ”

As the 6th largest gas exporter globally, home to the 10th largest proven reserves of natural gas, a new hydrocarbon law undergoing approval, and the 3rd largest proven reserves of shale gas still largely untapped, Algeria remains a key opportunity for oil and gas development.
The Future Oil & Gas Algeria Summit will serve as a platform to discuss the latest developments taking place across the industry and the opportunities the country has to offer across the onshore, offshore and unconventional sectors. Encouraging increased international dialogue, partnerships for growth, the importance of data & digitalisation and taking a strategic look at the supply chain, the Summit will provide a forum to discuss this growing market.
Bringing together key stakeholders from across the value chain, including central & local government, operators, service & solution providers, academia, and investors, the summit will focus upon revamping exploration strategy, building international partnerships & joint ventures, meeting changing domestic & international energy demands, attracting fresh investment, and implementing enhanced technologies across the supply chain.

Sessions One and Two

Session 1 - Digitalisation & Operational Efficiency

Digital transformation stands as one of the greatest fundamental changes to the oil & gas industry globally. As an already established market, embracing digitalisation is of vital importance to Algeria’s continued operations. This session will address key strategies for transforming into a data-driven industry, including where to focus digital efforts, areas for suppliers and contractors to support digital transformation, maximising operational efficiency, and ensuring cohesion across the industry. Particular attention will be paid to using real-time data to improve efficiency, integrated systems and data analytics to reduce downtime, data-driven asset management, and how to use data effectively to enable measured results.

Session Three

Session 3 - Infrastructure

Development and commercialization of new projects in Algeria are becoming increasingly dependent on addressing infrastructure gaps. There is potential to increase Algeria’s output substantially, however these projects are reliant upon attracting investors, upgrading older infrastructure or building new infrastructure. With loss of production from many mature fields Algeria also needs to bring on stream new fields, which will rely heavily on fixing infrastructure limitations. Algeria also holds vast potential shale reserves, however in order to develop such resources numerous infrastructure obstacles, created largely by the remote location of the acreage, will need to be addressed including lack of roads & pipelines, water availability, accessibility, and increased rig needs. This session will address existing infrastructure inadequacies, alongside future planned initiatives for increasing operations and production in Algeria.
