The use of photonic technologies is well known at the oil and gas industry as they allow for real-time monitoring of temperatures and pressures in downhole petroleum and geothermal environments to maximize resource extraction. In this meeting, we will explore fiber sensing technologies for downhole oil reservoir, well and pipeline structural monitoring but also other spectroscopic techniques able to provide multicomponent analysis of complex gas mixtures and for environmental control together with the key players in the development of photonic technologies and the main end-users in the sector.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships. 

Watch us LIVE on YouTube

These online technology meetings take place in Zoom with a limited group of people. If you would like to attend the meeting, please register below. There are limited seats and we allow only one person per company, but all our online technology meetings can be viewed LIVE on YouTube or be viewed afterwards if you have missed it.
