2020 has been a year of unprecedented times for the oil and gas industry.  The impact has been significant due to the double impact of COVID-19 and escalating tension between oil producing nations. Supplier risk management has become very critical as there is a risk of disruption in the supply of material and critical spare parts. Oversupply of crude and, in some regions, natural gas is creating storage capacity overruns with demand reduction. Refinery and fields are operating at lower capacity due to demand and workforce shortages. Gasoline, jet fuels, and lubricants are seeing significant demand reductions, driving a decline in revenue.

This is the new normal in which companies find themselves.  And this is the theme of our upcoming virtual ASUG Best Practices for Oil and Gas conference from September 21-23, “Excelling in the New Normal”.

Five Reasons to Attend

  1. Hear from industry about the top challenges facing companies in the Oil and Gas industry right now. Areas of discussion will include how to operate safely during pandemic and maintain Business Continuity, the dual challenge with the long-term need for more energy and less carbon with today’s low commodity prices, how companies are leveraging digitization and automation to reduce the manual element required in today’s operations, reduce costs, to minimize impact by catastrophic events in the future, and many more.

  2. Hear from best run oil and gas companies who are excelling in the new normal.  Hear from companies like innovative Portuguese oil and gas company Galp, who recently built and launched a disruption-proof foundation for innovation, despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

  3. Hear how working remotely has changed the industry forever.  While not all workers can work remotely, many can, and this is expected to continue long after Covid is gone.  Cloud technology implementations are happening and are being delivered with a 100% remote work force. This means we need to collaborate with our partners to deliver on the implementation of new applications without on-site staff, which leads to lower cost and less business disruption.

  4. Think Tanks: Join your peers for an interactive, focused networking discussion presented on industry hot topics.  Gain visibility into the challenges and successes other SAP customers are experiencing and acquire new ideas for real-world solutions.

  5. SAP’s Keynote by Benjamin Beberness, “Excelling in the New Normal”: Hear what oil and gas peers are doing to compete in the new normal and what SAP is doing to help them.
