In the oil and gas industry, smart connected operations leverage digital technologies to drive insights from massive datasets, and automate or simplify many processes and tasks in exploration and production activities.
With smart connected operations, oil and gas companies can:
- Reduce emissions by monitoring leaks from oil tank batteries, vapor recovery units and venting operations
- Optimize drill rig operations by calculating real-time well improvements and avoiding NPT
- Predict equipment failures before they happen
- Increased safety by reducing human intervention with "Always On" connected systems
- Ensure the right parts, for the right people, at the right time with optimized field service
We help oil and gas companies use interconnected machines and devices, intelligent analytics, and connected workers across product development, manufacturing, operations, supply chain and service to enable smarter, faster business decisions and achieve operational excellence.
The US shale industry can leverage smart connected operations – enabled by digital technologies – to deliver operational excellence in field operations. Here's an example
How We Help Clients Build Smart Connected Operations
Our smart connected operations approach focuses on leveraging Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and data-driven analytics to drive more throughput. We take a holistic approach to increase uptime, improve operational efficiency, reduce safety incidents, and increase employee satisfaction by putting the power of data in their hands – at the right time, on the right device, at the right place.
Three-Phased Approach to Digitizing Your Operations
We apply our oil and gas industry domain knowledge, technical analytics, machine learning capability and business results frameworks to your environment.
Physical to Digital
Connect a process facility to a robust industrial IoT platform that can bring in data securely, with low latency and in real-time. Leverage advanced analytics to quickly deploy edge intelligence that alerts upon undesirable events and immediately recommends actions that can prevent system-wide cascading failures.
Reactive to Predictive
Build on insights generated
from connected operations. Leverage machine learning and artificial intelligence to proactively predict and prescribe actions to prevent undesirable scenarios.
Organize to Scale
Scale the solution across
the enterprise to realize true value and benefits of digital transformation. Advance multiple use cases, built using industrial IoT and enabled by AI.
