    Technologies to Optimize Costs, Recovery & Emissions in the Upstream

    Indian operators are facing the dual pressures of lowering costs and increasing recoveries to remain competitive, and of decarbonizing the business. These aspirations are not mutually exclusive; the most efficient and effective oil companies tend to be those doing the most to curb their emissions. This session explores efforts underway in both areas along with the intersection between the two.

    What emerging technologies and innovative practices can Indian operators deploy today to drive lower costs, higher recoveries, and reduced emissions associated with operations?
    What is a realistic scope of performance improvements achievable through such means?
    Where is there strong alignment between these areas?
