    Upstream oil & gas is increasingly focused on cutting costs and improving recovery rates through radical innovation and digital transformation. One of the industry segments prime for disruption is completions or hydraulic fracturing, as it uses the most manual processes and accounts for the most expensive phase in E&P. While the potential for growth in key basins like the Permian, Marcellus, and Eagle Ford is promising, the only path forward for sustained development in the completions segment is the adoption of disruptive technologies and innovative business models, many from lesser-known companies.

    Join Frost & Sullivan’s Oil & Gas Innovation Council and a panel of experts as they discuss which disruptive technologies, best practices, new business models, and leading companies will shape the future of hydraulic fracturing at its upcoming Hot Topic Breakfast, moderated by Ethan Smith, Vice President, Oil & Gas at Frost & Sullivan.

    • Find out which technologies will reduce hydraulic fracturing costs in the next 5 years
    • Discover which Industry 4.0 technology are expected to make the greatest impact in completion designs
