M2M for Oil and Gas
28 - 29 April 2014
Marriott Hotel Regents Park, London

SMi’s M2M for Oil and Gas will address how the industry is addressing the challenges of managing, monitoring and controlling assets and processes through new automation and communication technologies.

The market for wireless M2M applications in the oil and gas industry has entered a growth phase with the installed base of active oil & gas M2M devices forecasted to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 21.5 percent from 164,000 units at the end of 2011 to 435,000 units by 2016. The installed base of cellular and satellite based M2M devices in 2016 are forecasted to be 275,000 units and 160,000 units respectively. It is anticipated that onshore well field equipment monitoring and inland pipeline monitoring will be the top two applications for wireless M2M in the oil & gas industry.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s 2nd annual M2M for Oil and Gas conference will address these developments in wireless technologies such as private radio, cellular and satellite communication, which can provide high performance online connectivity at reasonable cost. The two-day conference programme will feature case studies from Shell, BP and Petrobot among others, sharing essential insight on how these combined components enable the delivery of operations management, equipment management and regulatory compliance applications linking remote equipment and enterprise IT systems.

Key Speakers include:

PsychaLogica Seminar
Behavioural Safety: A Mickey Mouse solution for an Einstein problem?
22 May 2014
Norwood Hall Hotel, Aberdeen

The link between safety and behaviour is well accepted. As a response, “behavioural safety” as a subject has grown to be a major intervention. Unfortunately the result is at best inconsistent and one might even argue the approach has served to blind us from the real issues.

The evidence lies in the fact that behavioural accidents persist - including major organisational incidents and multiple fatalities. Why might this be?

This is a seminar that not only recognises the link between behaviour and safety but also focuses on the adequacy of “behavioural safety” as a solution.
