Webinar: The Future of Field Operations in 2021

A growing number of process industry players are turning to simulation technology in 2021 to increase productivity, reduce downtime and improve safety.

On 25 February at 11:00 EST, we’ll be joining Oil & Gas IQ for a webinar to explore how global companies are using digital replicas and procedure simulators to reduce unplanned downtime. You can sign up here.


The challenges of field operations management have been exacerbated by the recent pandemic. In this case study driven webinar, we will look at real examples of how the improper completion of critical tasks and procedures can lead to unplanned downtime, environmental releases, safety incidents and inefficient operations. Digital replicas and procedure simulators for the field operator can resolve these challenges within a matter of weeks — ensuring maximum uptime and productivity.

What you’ll learn

  • Explore examples of unplanned events related to lack of standardization and/or knowledge of the process — how these can be prevented with more effective competency building.
  • Learn how digital knowledge capture and transfer can be implemented for field operations with ease — driving quick wins.
  • Learn how procedure clarity is a root cause in poor operator performance.
  • Understand a manager’s perspective on how to manage and implement digital solution implementations for the field operator — you’ll be surprised at the results!
