overview

M2M technologies, Wireless Networking, SCADA Telemetry, and disruptive technologies are emerging as key differentiators in expediting oil and gas exploration and accelerating operational efficiencies. Wireless technologies and devices have played a key role for many operators in Europe and North American in their quest for energy independence.

Early adopters of telemetry, M2M, devices, sensors and connectivity technologies are able to monitor and manage remote locations more effectively, as well as benefit from faster more flexible control of assets from Wellhead to Pipelines; fiscal metering, drill monitoring, to fleet management and lone worker force safety and response. 
 

Keynote presentations: Shell Frontier Automation, Vodafone M2M, Raco Wireless, Wyless, Skywave, Zedi, Kore Telematics, Geotab and more.

M2M in Oil and Gas will address the role of Wireless Networks and Machine to Machine technologies, their current utilization, the future of devices and machine to machine connectivity and automation, and the role technical strategies play as operational business drivers for Oil and Gas applications.
 
The benefits of M2M and Wireless Sensor networks to the Oil and Gas industry are exponential.

If you are managing or serving field equipment; compressors, generators, turbines, plunger heads, tanks, separators, wellheads or EFMs, then you cannot miss this conference.
Investing in M2M solutions will minimize downtime, reduce the cost of maintenance, lower the consumption of energy, improve performance of equipment, provide safety enhancements and centralize controls.

Oil and Gas Operators: Would you like to arrange a one to one introduction with a M2M leader to further understand what they can do for your company? Contact jnesbitt@smi-online.co.uk
 

"You and your team should be highly complimented for the fine conference you arranged. I participated in many telematics conferences, and attended many more, and your conference can be ranked among those that fulfilled its high ambitions. As is usual, what is most important for the attendees is what happens outside the formal presentations, both in the exchanges between the speakers and the listeners inside the hall and during the meetings among delegates during the breaks. The venue and organisation allowed both."

 

Join as we look at the emerging opportunities of next generation technologies, their growth expectancy and the benefits to operations, equipment management, and enterprise IT.

The most profitable Oil and Gas Operators will inevitably be those with a firm grasp and understanding of advanced technologies such as M2M.

    WHAT IS CPD?

    CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

    ‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

    CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

    Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

    CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

    CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

    There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

    For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

    CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

    TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

    Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

    ‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

    ‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

    The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

    As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

    GLOBAL CPD

    Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
