The Geomatics discipline plays a pivotal role in the Energy Transition to net zero, from site characterisation, data acquisition, engineering and construction, and asset integrity inputs; to the management and analysis of geospatial data for projects. It encompasses situational awareness, opportunity screening, site selection and emergency preparedness and response.

The value proposition for Geomatics has seldom been more compelling, with the economic climate and drive for change accelerating project timelines, demanding greater operational efficiency and increasing the need for geospatial data and new technology. Technical capability, personnel competency and delivery workflows developed in support of oil and
gas projects are easily adapted and applied to the new energy businesses. This allows the Geomatics discipline to meet different challenges and create new opportunities for existing professionals and new talent.

The 11th IOGP Geomatics Industry Day will be co-hosted by IOGP, bp and Shell. The focus of this year’s event will be the role that Geomatics plays in the Energy Transition through delivery of cost competitive and operational efficiency, management of HSSE risks and geospatial data solutions, as enablers for existing oil and gas and future energy business.
