Oil & Gas Networks and Systems Resilience

To borrow from the observation(s) from a WEF paper (2021), the digital revolution and the energy transition have jointly transformed the oil and gas industry’s decades-old business model in just a few short years. Today, companies control physical energy assets by linking operational technology with information technology networks that leverage big data, artificial intelligence, and automation.

Potential Blockchain Application in Energy Industry – Asset Lifecycle Management

A large portion of the existing systems in oil & gas industry – exploration, production, and supply chain and logistics operations – are centralized, manual, and disintegrated, making them vulnerable to manipulation and single point of failure. Blockchain technology offers practical solutions in providing traceability, immutability, operational transparency, audit, security, and trusted provenance features.

Should Digital Business (Transformation) and Sustainability be seen as complementary growth drivers?

Digitalisation is expected to have profound (‘transformative’) effects on the economy, society, and politics as well as on the planet itself.

This includes the production, use and disposal of hardware (Information and Communication Technologies equipment, data centres, data transmission networks) as well as of software, digital technologies, and applications – ranging from robotics, the Internet of Things (IoT), via distributed ledger technologies such as blockchain, to Artificial Intelligence (AI).

The US Push for Digital Security Mandates for Critical Infrastructure Sectors Mandatory standards. Push Operators to do more to bolster digital defenses
