The premier forum for well site automation and IoT across Canada

Welcome to the Canadian Well Site Automation 2020 Exhibition and Conference where shale operators and service companies will meet with automation experts and key technology providers in Calgary to explore efficient and cost effective well site solutions.

The face of well site operations is fast changing as operators navigate through the ‘digital oilfield age’ and introduce new technologies across well sites and embrace the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT). As operators adjust to a lower oil price market, new initiatives towards more efficient and cost effective operations have become essential in order to remain profitable in a low-margin business. While automation has reduced OpEx and CapEx costs and helped producers to survive in a low-price market, operators are now challenged with the growing risks associated with complexities of the digital oilfield.

With new developments in well site technologies and technical know-how, recent advancements in automation offer new hope for producers looking for operational efficiencies under challenging market conditions, and to better manage their well sites. The Canadian Well Site Automation 2020 conference is set to become Canada’s leading exhibition and conference exclusively for shale operators and technology experts, to present new solutions in well site automation and IoT applications for pre-existing wells and new operations.

The key focus for this year’s conference will be to “achieve efficient, cost-effective, and safer operations”, and the objective will be to bring shale operators and service companies together with leading industry experts to collaborate and examine new opportunities in well site automation, and to address the key challenges in well site operations across Canada.

Key topics on this year’s agenda include:

  • Making an economic assessment for developing well site automation
  • Integrating new well site automation technologies into existing systems
  • Looking at real-time data and cutting-edge communication networks
  • Cost reduction strategies in well site operations for a low oil price market
  • New technologies and technical know-how in IoT and well site automation
  • End-user case studies in automation and how to make a successful transition

This exhibition and conference will provide a forum for all stakeholders from shale operators and upstream service providers to leading automation experts and well site technology companies, to network and build cross-market relationships, and to discuss the latest results in well site automation for the Canadian shale sector.
