Meeting your sustainability goals through operational excellence

An AVEVA and ARC On-Demand Webinar 

With new mandates in global carbon reduction, GHG and other environmental directives, Oil & gas and energy companies are re-thinking processes and technology and how Corporate Sustainability goals impact Operational Excellence. Operational excellence has always been about creating a culture and mindset to improve operational performance and efficiency. Today and in the future, Sustainability will have a greater role in driving operational excellence to remain competitive.

In this webcast, Peter Reynolds, Energy and Chemicals Industry Analyst of ARC Advisory Group, will discuss the shift in operational excellence themes in O&G and how Sustainability and ESG (Environmental Social Governance) goals impact capital projects and operational excellence and break down Operational Efficiency into the following groups:
  • Accelerate operational efficiency - break down silos and empower teams with real-time situational awareness to improve decision making
  • Increase operational and asset reliability - maximize the value of your data with AI-infused predictive maintenance and prescriptive guidance
  • Enable supply chain agility and resilience - seize valuable opportunities to improve agility and resilience across the value chain
  • Eliminate silos, power supply chain agility, increase asset reliability, and optimize efficiency from edge to enterprise.

After Peter presents, Harpreet Gulati, Head of the Planning and Operations Business Unit at AVEVA, will present how value chain optimization from AVEVA can help you in all four areas. After the presentations, the team will be available to answer your questions and discuss how this leads to sustainable operations.
