5 reasons to attend the Enverus EVOLVE 2024 Conference

bySusie Yuill

Have you heard? The Enverus EVOLVE Conference, the pivotal event for energy professionals, thought leaders and experts, to come together, trade ideas and gain new knowledge, is happening May 7 – 9 in downtown Houston at the Marriott Marquis.

With eight different topic tracks, 65+ sessions and more than 130 speakers, the EVOLVE Conference promises networking and learning opportunities for industry players across the spectrum of oil, gas, renewables and emerging technology to gain unique insights and valuable information on pressing issues, transformative industry and technology trends, and future opportunities across the globe.  If you haven’t registered yet and want to know what’s in store, here are five reasons you don’t want to miss this year’s Enverus EVOLVE Conference.

1. Learn how your peers are solving big problems

Energy businesses are always looking for an edge, whether tweaking development plans or automating certain processes to save time and reduce errors. Knowing what others are doing to solve similar problems is a big part of this. With a growing global population and calls for decarbonization, collaboration across energy is now more critical than ever. Why? Delivering this essential resource so that future generations may flourish requires all of us to continue the vital work we all do each day and drive the advancements that will expand our energy supply. 

This year’s conference features 75 Enverus customer speakers from E&P, OFS, midstream, power and utilities, trading and investment firms, speaking in sessions across a broad range of topics. You’ll have the opportunity to hear from C-Suite executives, engineers, accounting and finance, supply chain, data scientists and more about how they are solving their biggest challenges.

Check out the video from Travis Bolt, director of Frac Technology at NOV on why he values his time at EVOLVE.

2. Prescriptive, actionable market insights from Enverus Intelligence analysts

If you didn’t know, Enverus doesn’t just provide software that helps our customers make wise business decisions. We have an entire team of industry analysts who hail from various backgrounds of expertise beyond just finance, like geology, petroleum engineering and economics. These analysts are the Enverus Intelligence Research team and they advise our customers, from Wall Street to the oilpatch, with prescriptive actionable advice.

This year, the team is hosting a macro track that sets the stage for the industry, including the impact of supply and demand outlooks, key geopolitical events and investment trends.

Key sessions include:

  • Evolving Regulations: Estimating the Impact of Policy and Regulation on Energy Economics and M&A
  • The Investor Mindset: Evaluating Sentiment Trends in E&P Equities
  • Natural Gas Long-Term Outlook: 3 Themes to 2030
  • Crude Oil Long-Term Outlook: Testing Peak Demand

These sessions are open to everyone live at the conference but will be unavailable to non-intelligence customers after EVOLVE. If you’ve been looking for solid macro read-outs, don’t miss this chance!

3. An entire track dedicated to generative AI

Gen AI (what the cool kids call generative artificial intelligence) is everywhere. So, how much do you know about it? When you are sorting through the ins and outs of day-to-day work, it can be hard to step away to learn about new things affecting your job. And believe us, gen AI is affecting everyone’s job.

With an entire track dedicated to this emerging technology (that is not only affecting your job but also the overall forecasted energy demand), the Enverus EVOLVE Conference offers the perfect opportunity for you to get out of the office and immerse yourself in new knowledge. Not only will you walk away being able to speak knowledgeably about gen AI – but you might also learn an idea or two to take back to your boss on how your company can leverage gen AI to become more effective. And who doesn’t like to look good in front of their boss?

4. You will learn something (ok, probably several things) you didn’t know

The broader EVOLVE agenda has an insane selection of industry thought leaders covering some of the most pressing energy topics. Curious how other companies are using AI in their businesses to reshape strategy? Join the panel session “AI/ML in Action: Case Studies from the Intersection of AI and Energy,” where panelists from Shell, PWC, Total Energies, SLB and the World Economic Forum will discuss applications of AI in energy.

Want to dive deep into alternative energy resources powering the oilfield? The session, “Nuclear Oilfield: Small and Micro Nuclear Power Generation and Oilfield Electrification,” features experts discussing possibilities. The session, “Blackouts and Blac Gold: The Struggle for Electricity in U.S. Oil Field Operations,” will discuss the rock and a hard place of reducing emissions by going electric on an electrical grid already strained by consumer demand. With more than 65 sessions and 130+ speakers, including several Enverus customers talking about their success, it’s guaranteed you will walk away with new actionable knowledge to put into practice in your own energy career.

There are a total of eight track options, including:

  • Macro and Markets: Gain insight into the impact of supply and demand outlooks, key geopolitical events and investment trends on the energy industry.
  • Asset Optimization: Deep dive into statistical analysis and case studies that illuminate best practices in the operation of oil, gas and power-generating assets.
  • Carbon Innovation: Learn about transformative decarbonization investment opportunities most adjacent to the oil and gas value chain, including subsurface innovation technologies like carbon capture and sequestration, direct lithium extraction and low-carbon fuels like hydrogen.
  • Electrification: Hear about transformative technology shaping the future energy landscape, exploring the shift from molecules to electrons, and the implications for consumer behavior, the power grid and oil and gas.
  • AI for Energy: Explore the impact of this transformative technology on the energy industry. How are energy operators and investors currently leveraging generative AI to accelerate business results, what will be the impact on labor markets and consumer prices, and how should companies think about incorporating this technology into their daily workflows?
  • Operational Spend Visibility: Increase your capital and operating efficiency! This track examines the crucial ingredients for energy companies to successfully gain visibility into spend and automate their procure-to-pay process from beginning to end.
  • Realizing the Smart Contract: Get your spending under control. It is possible! Dive deep into using the smart contract to prevent overspending and collaborate with your suppliers.
  • Trading & Risk: Learn about transformative trends shaping the macroeconomic environment that directly influence energy trading and risk management.

5. The SPARK Conference is now part of the EVOLVE Conference

We consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have a loyal, enthusiastic group of business automation customers that have joined us for our annual SPARK Conference year after year. The conference started as the Annual User Group in 2004 and a few years ago was rebranded to SPARK. And while the energy industry is complex, with several moving parts, it can also feel like a small world, especially in the accounting, finance, operations and supply chain groups that attend SPARK every year. It almost feels like a “work family” reunion, and the focus of the conference is to discuss best practices using Enverus source-to-pay software solutions that help our customers gain efficiency, both in cost and process management, and have conversations on how Enverus can make our products even better to serve the unique operational needs of energy businesses. This year, the SPARK Conference is merging into the larger EVOLVE Conference and not only can we not wait to see our amazing Business Automation customers again for great collaborative discussions, we are excited for them to gain larger exposure to the information and connections they will have the opportunity to make while at EVOLVE.

Check out this video of Mike Bechtel, Director of Operations Accounting at Chesapeake Energy, discussing why he and his team never miss a SPARK Conference.

We hope this article convinces you to join us at the EVOLVE Conference. Whatever your role, you will come away equipped with new knowledge and perspectives to maintain focus and achieve success, while making valuable new connections with your peers. Our shared mission, to power the global quality of life by providing access to affordable energy, is a big responsibility, requiring new advancements to meet growing energy needs. The EVOLVE Conference is the place to come together, spark conversations, and come away with new ideas that will help us navigate this journey…and have fun along the way.
