E&P Data Governance and Information Quality Workshop

29 31 January 2013, Kenzi Farah Hotel, Marrakech, Morocco

A properly implemented data governance programme has an immediate impact across all business operations. It brings tangible benefits to the effectiveness of your operation, including increased productivity, savings, clarity and control. It will improve quality, consistency, auditability and change control of your data.


E&P information and data forms the very lifeblood of today's oil and gas companies, with streams of data relating to all aspects of global exploration, drilling, and production projects flowing constantly through every artery in the corporate network. Data and information are critical assets of any organisation, and should be considered as valuable a resource as buildings, employees and products. For a company to gain a significant competitive advantage, it must focus on managing and using its data effectively.

Oil and gas companies now have more data than ever before on which to base their decision relating to exploration, drilling and production. For this reason alone an effective and productive data governance programme is crucial for the whole organisation.

Data governance is an emerging, cross-functional management programme that treats data as an enterprise asset. It includes the collection of policies, procedures, roles, responsibilities, standards, processes, people, and technology essential to managing critical data to a set of goals. Data governance also includes the oversight necessary to ensure compliance and to manage risk. It can drive significant benefit to the organisation: decreased costs, decreased time and effort, decreased risk of compliance failures, increased trust in corporate data, improved decision support capabilities, and better organisational collaboration.

This workshop provides participants with practical, in-depth understanding of how to implement a successful enterprise wide data governance and stewardship programme. Through a series of case studies from leading oil and gas companies, presentations and discussions and technology updates it provides an overview of the disciplines of governing data, covers the essential components of an enterprise-wide programme, and outlines a roadmap to execute a successful data governance programme.
