Back at the dawn of 2017, I wrote up a set of predictions for the year. Let’s see how well I did in forecasting the digital oil world.
Eight new “economies” enabled by digital technologies have been on the rise. These have yet to make much of an impact on oil and gas, but they are coming.
European think tanks are forming scenarios on the race to deliver digital energy, or the digitalisation of energy. Here’s some of the evolving thinking, based on a workshop I attended recently with the IEA.

How might blockchain technology solve one of the most frustrating and costly problems of the digital oil and gas industry? The sector builds new assets constantly, but engineering documents and systems that are supposed to accurately depict as built asset do not, leading to substantial costs and waste for the oil and gas asset owner. Blockchain could be a solution.
