Corvacon Replay: Drilling and Completions Best Practices, Integrations, ESG, and Breakout Sessions

June 1, 2021

We recently held our first ever Corvacon, an event centered around the oil & gas community to foster connection and collaboration.  Hundreds of energy professionals attended at Corva’s Houston HQ and over our live stream, including leading energy companies, Corva partners, users, influencers, and media.

Corvacon’s mission is to be the catalyst for digital oilfield transformation by connecting all stakeholders, from innovators and developers to the field and board room decision-makers. Corvacon’s knowledge-sharing agenda was packed with best practices and emerging trends to help the oil & gas community build faster, better, safer, more profitable wells.  Plus, an ESG panel discussion on one of the most important topics in the industry.

If you missed Corvacon or would like to revisit specific sessions, you can catch it all in the following sections.  

Introduction + Morning Sessions

Thought-provoking presentations provided best practices and insights into elevating data quality for real-time operations centers, powering up productivity across the software ecosystem, optimizing offshore drilling, and solving oil & gas big data challenges.  Led by Corva founder and CEO Ryan Dawson with presentations from team leads and partners on Corva’s integration strategy and new WellView connector, Dev Center, WellHub, and advancements in deepwater drilling optimization.
