INTRODUCTION

CONGRESS & EXHIBITION

Increasingly becoming an important part of the future oil mix due to rapid innovation and technological advancements, Heavy and Extra-heavy oil resources have been estimated at 40% of the world’s oil reserves; of which about one-third are said to be in the Middle East. Held under the auspices of the Ministry of Oil & Gas, Sultanate of Oman, the World Heavy Oil Congress & Exhibition delivers a global platform for the entire heavy oil value chain to convene, connect, and engage in conversation. The event offers heavy oil professionals unparalleled opportunity for knowledge exchange through a three-day technical conference on topics from upstream, midstream, and downstream heavy oil operations, and heavy oil research and technology. The technical conference is steered by the technical committee. WHOC 2018 will also provide heavy oil professionals a platform to learn and hear high level strategies, and mid to long-term plans for the sector from industry leaders and decision makers through a two-day business programme. The business programme has been put together following extensive research with the industry, and will host C level executives and industry experts as panelists and speakers. Supporting the conference is a three-day international exhibition where businesses will showcase the best in terms of products, technology, and services. The international exhibition will provide the NOCs, IOCs, Service Providers, EPCs, OEMs, and technology providers a global platform to do business, and network with existing and new clients. Join the Sultanate of Oman’s Ministry of Oil & Gas, Petroleum Development Oman, and the global heavy oil sector in Oman from Monday 3 – Wednesday 5 September 2018 for the largest congregation of heavy oil professionals globally.

Dr Saleh Al Anboori Director General of Management of Petroleum Investments, Ministry of Oil & Gas, Sultanate of Oman

MINISTERIAL PANEL - UNITED NATIONS: ACCELERATING PROGRESS THROUGH DIVERSIFICATION OF RESOURCES The low oil price has provided both, a challenge and an opportunity, for the oil and gas sector. Fuelling an irreversibly hydrocarbon addicted world, the energy sector is supplying to meet the growing demands for hydrocarbons. With a recent upward surge in oil pricing and a slightly more stable market, the industry needs to begin planning for the near future focusing on value creation, increased margins and short-cycle investments. • Will exploration and production of shale and heavy oil surpass light oil in the future energy mix? • Impact of global policy trends, energy reforms and agreements, and volatile prices on policies and development of heavy oil? Can agile regulations and subsidies act as a catalyst for promoting sustainable and profitable development of heavy and ultra-heavy oil resources? • What type of announcements and developments can we expect from governments and NOCs of oil producing nations in the next 5 years? • Heavy oil sector as an engine for job creation, technological innovations and disruptions, and diversification of resources Moderator: Hadley Gamble Business Anchor CNBC

MOVING FURTHER DOWNSTREAM: UNLOCKING REFINING POTENTIAL & VALUE CHAIN PERFORMANCE TO MEET THE RISING DEMAND OF HIGHER VALUE REFINED PRODUCTS The last two years have witnessed a powerful change in the commercial strategies of today’s NOCs and IOCs. A new roadmap has been created with companies inclining towards integration of upstream and downstream operations to stay relevant and agile to the world’s evolving energy demands. • Integration of refining and petrochemical plants with heavy oil E&P businesses: a boon or bane? • Connecting business transformation and digital strategies to eliminate inefficiencies in upgrading heavy crude: a nice to have or must have? • Capitalising on infrastructure upgrades and technological advancements to manage costs and generate maximum revenue from finished products: identifying mid-term and long-term opportunities Giuseppe Ricci Chief Refining & Marketing Officer Eni

DIGITISATION IN ENERGY: REVOLUTION OR EVOLUTION? Digital innovation and integration is top priority on every CEO's agenda. Creating a futuristic and innovative oil and gas business is more than installing new technology. It requires a new business model, organisational structure, new strategies, and new talent. It will also bring along new questions, challenges and opportunities. • Integrating artificial intelligence and robotics in regular operations of production and upgradation of oil: impact on OPEX and operational excellence, challenges and long-term results • Exploring existing and upcoming technologies in the heavy oil sector, and how they can enable a smoother transition into the Fourth Industrial Revolution • Critical experiences and strategic priorities in creating a sustainable and innovative business and financial model for unconventionals • Delving deeper into existing policies and regulations governing the Information Technology sector, its impact on the oil and gas, and how effective governance can take digital transformation to the next level • Digital transformation: an amalgamation of IT, marketing and operations. How will digitisation impact these core functions and what skillsets do employees of today need to acquire in order to be future ready?

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT: A CRUCIAL STEP IN DISRUPTING AND ADVANCING HEAVY OIL SERVICES AND TECHNOLOGIES TO BE FUTURE READY Oil and gas are the most used commodities in the world. With the world’s ‘easy oil’ on the brink of exhaustion, it is becoming increasingly imperative to explore and produce tomorrow’s hydrocarbons. With unconventional resources expected to become a major contributor in tomorrow’s hydrocarbon mix, developing technology to advance and upgrade these resources at a lower OPEX is imperative. • • • •

Overview of top-line research and development projects in E&P and refining for heavy oil; how can these benefit the sector in the coming 10 years? Impact of low oil price on research and development projects, and in turn its impact on innovation and advancement in heavy oil projects Research and development in EOR; including developing EOR technology and methods that depend on alternate sources of energy Analysing the mid and long-term impacts of research and development on cost efficiency, operational excellence, and overall profits of the company Mike Crabtree Vice President – Energy Saskatchewan Research Council

LIFE OF FIELD ANALYTICS: HOLISTIC FIELD ASSET VALUE AND CAPITAL INVESTMENT PROGRAM A recent industry statistic stated that 25% of UKCS developments deliver on promise whether that is CAPEX, schedule or NPV; which means an alarming 75% do not. Modern field development approaches must be used to improve that statistic. Advisian has spent the last three years working with internal and commercial software to develop the first life of field integrated asset model. Having a common platform for visualisation from the subsurface through the wells, production system, facilities and seeing the commercial impact of any change in that chain, means everyone is correctly focused. This presentation is focused on how the software gives the customer the opportunity to see the full life of field asset value and capital investment program rather than a view partitioned by disciplines and bias.
