What Is The UP Conference?
The UP Conference is a forum for the E&P industry to learn and discuss best practices of upstream planning, and new ways to leverage technology to meet business goals.
In 2018, the Upstream Planning Conference focused on the theme of the Digital Transformation of Energy Planning. The Upstream Planning Conference has been a critical industry event that has brought together 75+ oil and gas operators around the world, plus guests from solution providers, financial firms, and industry consultants over the past two years.
What To Expect
“The conference was well organized and had a good flow of presentations related to upstream planning with relevant use case examples.”
“Great industry participation. Enjoyed the perspectives & presentations.”
“Thank you for holding this free event for the industry. I learned a lot about the methods of other companies, best practices, and technology to help us advance.”
"There are so few opportunities for Corporate & Business Planners to get together, share experiences, and learn a thing or 2 about their craft so this conference fills a big void."
"We loved the format of the conference this year. If we knew it was going to be more of an industry conference we would have encouraged other executives from our company to attend."
