Implementation of Internet of Things in the gas and oil industry

by | May 17, 2019 | IoT Applications & Examples

The IoT implementation is transforming the gas and the oil industry like a wildfire. Nevertheless, even in the tech-drive time, the industry is still held back by inefficient and archaic practices to collect data & manage operations. However, the introduction of the Internet of Things, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and automation is pushing the industry into enhanced productivity and efficiency.

The recent tragedies in the oil industry have made it necessary for most of the sectors for undertaking adequate maintenance and operational measures to ensure protection. By the looks of it, it includes tracking of the work history, replacement, repair, monitoring of the asset function, among others. The industries also need to exploit the training of drives for familiarizing the members with the modern-day technologies.

Integration of IoT will also enhance communication system which is placed underwater in the gas and oil industries. With automation and IoT utilization, the managers and engineers can be empowered to deploy a collection of remote data and in maintenance. As far as forecasting and prediction are concerned, Deep ML can benefit from making investment decisions.

Artificial Intelligence and automation can eliminate the risks which are associated with drilling. AI will provide an upper hand to track and optimize different factors such as strata permeability, thermal gradients, vibrations occurring at tectonic plates. The marine system of the Internet of Things will make use of the actuators and sensors for gathering and sending information to the plant.

By widely utilizing the IoT, the oil and gas industry can leverage the technology to conduct preventive equipment maintenance remotely. Remote monitoring and big data analysis of the IoT will aid the industry to manage their assets effectively. On the other hand, it will also reduce the time of maintenance and allow the enterprises to divert their attention on better production and enhanced operation.
