Oil and Gas
Hands-free Solutions for the Oil & Gas Industry
Reduce Costs and Increase Productivity with Secure Hands-Free, Voice-Enabled Collaboration
Digital Transformation in Oil & Gas
Although the oil and gas industry has been slot to adapt when it comes to new technologies, the industry has seen a recent push towards embracing artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality and the Internet of Things (IoT).
Brimming with data points, 90% of all data accumulated still fails to influence the decision-making process in the oil and gas industry due to rising costs and the difficulty of properly implementing a strategy in the sector’s asset-heavy environments. Hands-free IoT Data Visualisation provides operators the real-time data they need when operating, inspecting or maintaining equipment.
Complete tasks in days rather than months
Verify team welfare in real-time
Standardise and simplify the supply chain
Locate reserves with a higher success rate
Provide accurate data to teams on-the-go
Train teams in virtual scenarios
In case of a pipeline failure natural gas companies must contact the site maintenance unit to respond immediately. Failure to solve the issue quickly will have a heavy impact on daily work and have potential security risks.
Through hands-free audio and video, the dispatching centre can access real-time information for scientific decision-making and guide the technicians through emergency repairs accordingly. RealWear has seen on average a 29% reduction of downtime after implementation of HMTs.
Companies along the value chain are required to take ownership of their upstream suppliers, and any extraction sites they build and operate on. Failure to do so may lead to strong penalties or closure. Engineers must also inspect quality of completed work by subcontractors.
Technicians can capture photos and videos as work is done, review, archive them at shift change. They can also troubleshoot work issues and remotely perform live inspection via 2-way video as supervisors watch on a laptop.
Equipment on offshore drilling vessels requires expert support. With skilled workforce retiring in the next five years, the number of technicians to travel offshore will be reduced, further increasing safety risks associated with time lag in communication with shore-based support staff.
Remote video enables small groups of centralized senior SMEs to mentor junior field technicians. With the intrinsically safe hands-free HMT-1Z1, inexperienced techs can perform quickly and safely. Skilled workers can also capture content for future training and reference.
