Qnections 24 Barcelona: Uniting Oil & Gas Leaders to Drive Future Innovations

Over 200 attendees gathered this year at Quorum’s Qnections 24 Barcelona, including leaders from major NOCs and IOCs—all joined together in pushing boundaries that transform the future of oil and gas, inspiring performance together. Driving innovation forward, this first-ever event was a resounding success. Immersive learning, insightful discussions, and collaboration were coupled with a showcase of Quorum’s full offering of solutions. Going beyond Energy Components, Dawinci, Planning Space, PetroVR, Previso, Execute, and Val Nav, Qnections Barcelona offered participants opportunities to broaden their scopes and enhance customer engagement.

Keynote Presentations: Leadership and Technological Insights

CEO, Paul Langenbahn, EVP & Chief Products Officer, Tyson Greer, and EVP International, Emilio Marisei kicked off the conference with their keynote presentations. With the theme of inspiring performance together and a mission to elevate performance across the industry, main ideas were focused on corporate initiatives that drive reliability, performance, and security in the cloud. Also, GenAI’s revolutionary potential and implications for the energy landscape transitioned well to the idea of leveraging disruptive technologies for strategic advantage. Quorum’s final promise was to continue spearheading oil and gas’ digital transformation, empowering more businesses to thrive.

Leading Perspectives: Chevron, Rystad Energy & SLB

Chevron’s executive keynote presentation was led by Patrick Ryan, GM Digital Solutions & Analytics, and Jacob Umbriaco, Subsurface Digital Platform and Services Manager. Covering oil and gas’ digital enablement, they offered a glimpse into Chevron's strategic approach in navigating market dynamics like fostering partnerships for sustained growth.

Thought-provoking presentations from industry leaders like Rystad Energy and SLB offered a comprehensive market overview and strategic perspectives on the energy transition.
