Kuwait’s economy is predominantly driven by the oil and gas sector, which accounts for around 92% of its export revenues. With a goal to amplify its oil and gas production volume over the next ten years, the sector has been investing heavily into advanced technologies and innovative digital solutions to increase output, improve efficiency and minimize costs.

Forbes Middle East, in partnership with Gulf Business Machines (GBM), will bring together the industry experts to discuss how technology innovations can not only empower production capabilities but also optimize operations. Join us to understand the journey of digital transformation within Kuwait’s Oil & Gas industry which has reshaped the operating landscape to become agile, efficient, and resilient. We will also learn about the need to adopt new technologies and how artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and analytics are shaping the future of this industry.
