National Instruments UK and Ireland is announcing the 2007 Oil and Gas Industry Symposium, a free one-day seminar that takes place on Tuesday 15th May 2007 at The Hilton Aberdeen Treetops hotel. This Symposium is part of a series, presented by NI and partners, that reaches 13 major drilling and exploration cities across North America, South America and Europe.
The industry event highlights case studies from Shell Global Solutions, Bj�rge and FAG Industrial Services (FIS). The symposium kicks off on May 8 in Stavanger, Norway, and is sponsored by FIS, Fiber Sensing, Gavea Sensors, National Instruments, Optimation, UT Technology and vibDaq.
It includes technology presentations and in-depth case studies on how companies in the oil and gas industry have applied the latest measurement and control technologies in service, drilling, distributed measurements and oil field inventory management applications. Participants will discuss: technology trends during the panel discussion, and in-depth case studies will be presented for drilling, oil field service and inventory management applications. There will also be an opportunity to participate in hands-on training with National Instruments LabVIEW graphical development software.
Pete Zogas, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for NI, comments: "Energy is a critical issue for the global economy and NI is proud to support engineers in the oil and gas industry who use our programmable automation controller (PAC) technologies to deploy new drilling techniques, provide performance information to managers in oil field service applications, and help researchers developing pilot plants for oil and gas and alternative energy sources. The 2007 Oil and Gas Industry Symposium offers a forum for technology discussion, application knowledge exchange and in-depth technical training."
