Microsoft Global Energy Forum 2011 Kicks off in Houston

Executives from the oil, gas and technology industries are in Houston today for the eighth annual Microsoft Global Energy Forum.

The results of the 2011 Oil & Gas Industry Collaboration Survey released today show that industry professionals are collaborating more and more and adopting the use of social media tools into their daily work.

The survey of 205 professionals within international, national and independent oil- and gas-related companies found that nearly 74 percent use social media for business collaboration — a significant increase over last year’s survey responses (62 percent).
