From Dumb Iron to Smart Iron

  • With a significant number of oil and gas companies ready to embrace IIoT solutions, the market is ripe for disruption, especially with sensor pricing expected to drop
  • Significant opportunities exist to provide simplified access to information and potential opportunities to de-man platforms leveraging real-time remote monitoring
  • By using sensors that can see, feel, smell, and hear downhole to detect defects or breaches , supplemented by the use of autonomous scouts to provide 24/7 remote monitoring, organizations can effectively put in place an immediate first line of defense from equipment failure, hazardous conditions, and environmental impacts
  • Integrated asset information platforms that aggregate sensor data, operations data, and geospatial data in an analytic engine, to provide real time alerts using event based logic to enable immediate action based on data generated from sensors
