TekSummit on Emerging ICT Technologies in Oil, Gas & Mining

Second Quarter, Annually

Jointly Hosted by GAO RFID Inc. & GAO Tek Inc.

This summit is an important virtual event for leading technical and business professionals and corporate executives in the oil, gas and mining industries to learn about the latest information and communications technologies (ICT) and how to apply such new technologies to their industries.

Participants include experts and executives from such major oil and gas corporations such as Marathon Petroleum, Chevron, Exxon Mobil, ConocoPhillips, EOG Resources, Occidental Petroleum, Valero Energy, Delek US, Pioneer National Resources, Chesapeake Energy, Devon Energy, Par Pacific Holdings, PBF Energy, HollyFrontier, Phillips 66, as well as from major mining companies such as Southern Copper, Newmont, Royal Gold, Freeport McMoRan, Albemarle, Mosaic and Hecla Mining.

Participants also include experts and managers from associations in the oil, gas and mining industries such as the American Association of Drilling Engineers, American Exploration & Production Council, American Gas Association, American Petroleum Institute, Association of Energy Service Companies, Canadian Association of Geophysical Contractors (CAGC), Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors (CAODC), Canadian Association of Petroleum Landmen, Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP), Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA), Canadian Fuels Association, Canadian Gas Association, Canadian Heavy Oil Association, Canadian Renewable Energy Association, Canadian Society of Exploration Geophysicists, Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists, Explorers and Producers Association of Canada (EPAC), International Association of Drilling Contractors and Society of Petroleum Engineers, US National Mining Association (NMA), and American Exploration & Mining Association (AEMA).

Participants also include experts and officials from the governments such as Natural Resources Canada, US Agriculture for Natural Resources and Environment (NRE) and US Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).


The Oil, Gas and Mining sectors have seen some pushback while alternatives like electric have been more of a topic these days. Attempting to stay innovative, while being an established industry; they set out to understand the environmental and effective practices to better themselves. This summit discusses emerging ICT technologies. Topics will include Cybersecurity, Autonomous Vehicles, and Manufacturing 4.0.

As the world becomes more conscious about the impact of oil, gas and mining on the environment, companies must develop newer technologies to bring insight into what is going on. With advancements in AI (Artificial Intelligence) and Big Data, this sets out to help mitigate risk and achieve greater results in a shorter period of time. Speakers will also discuss Sustainability, Environmental impacts, and Human factors that shape processes today.

Oil, Gas and Mining are still foundational industries, but they are being challenged by growing sectors that wish to gain market share. With advancements in other sectors and a growing customer base for more sustainable technology, competition is at an all-time high. Join us to hear industry leaders pushing for the future within the Oil, Gas and Mining sectors.
