Innovation can offer many solutions to the challenges that the well planning community faces, from early planning through to delivery. How people think about, behave, and respond to new technology has been found to act as a significant facilitating or blocking factor for change and technology uptake in the oil and gas industry. In this session we will hear from a range of speakers who will provide insight and advice on how to address these people barriers to improve the well planning process.



Dr. Ruby Roberts

Dr Ruby Roberts is an industrial psychologist at the Aberdeen Business School, Robert Gordon University. She will discuss recent research examining the psychological factors that influence technology adoption decisions in upstream oil and gas. Providing insight into these people factors, she will also outline recommendations for facilitating technology adoption and developing an organisational culture that values innovation.
