Embarking Africa’s refineries on a digital journey to optimise production capacity
Investing and implementing digital technologies for Africa is no more a thing of the future and a luxury to oil companies. It is a necessity now keeping in mind the poor production capacities. With disruptive technologies proven over the past couple of years, these technologies have the capabilities of improving efficiency, safety and operability whilst reducing costs in the long run.
With $300 billion being invested into the African economies for digitalization, a major chunk is being allocated towards the digitalisation of refineries. Effective integration of digital technologies can reduce capital expenditure at refineries by 20%. Almost 90% of oil thefts and pipeline vandalisation can be prevented through digitalisation, which currently costs Nigeria $35 million a day.
Are you ready to embrace the digital shift and achieve optimum security and production capacities?

"Very targeted talks and workshops, which engages the attendees and provides relevancy to what they do"
"The Digital Refineries Africa Summit is an exciting platform to discuss 5G in the oil and gas industry and it is going to disrupt operations. The summit will definitely enable us to improve our production capacities and reduce the cost of operations."
"The concept of digital refineries is so relevant to Africa and Nigeria in specific. Since I specialise in pipelines I look forward to discussing some pipeline integrity strategies and how companies can prevent pipeline failure, minimize unscheduled deferments and prioritise maintenance, which are causes for concern for oil and gas companies operating in Nigeria."
