Company Connecting spoke with Ian Watt of The Data Lab and Code the City to get his insights into technology and the Oil & Gas sector. Ian Watt works on machine learning, AI and data analytics and helps push forward innovative technology solutions.

Earlier this week Company Connecting published an infographic which looks at 289 IT and telecoms companies providing services and products to the Oil & Gas sector. More than half of these companies are in the Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshireshire council areas. The industry is of huge importance to the North East of Scotland.  

In conjunction with the infographic we are publishing several articles and interviews offering further insights into technology in the Oil & Gas sector.

The UK has a thriving oil and gas industry, having extracted close to 44 billion barrels since 1964. Despite (or perhaps because) of the recent downturn, technology companies are becoming incremental in the development of the oil and gas sector. Technology can help to optimise the extraction process as well as increase the overall productivity of the whole sector by implementing digital tools.
