By 2050, the global population is expected to reach nearly 10 billion people, illustrating the need for safe, reliable, and affordable energy. In an increasingly complex energy market, the industry is facing new challenges transitioning to more renewable sources.
This often requires innovative technologies for regulating, generating and storing energy. In order to meet demand, oil and gas companies need to focus on areas within their own business models where they can embrace innovation to increase efficiencies.
Simultaneously, the energy industry – along with many others – is suffering from a skilled labor shortage. This shallow talent pool has made it difficult for oil and gas companies to hire new team members with the technical skills required to work on new energy sources. Without skilled workers in these positions, it has now become essential for energy companies to rethink their operations and include the use of automation, predictive and self-learning systems, and digitally connected infrastructure. These technologies can dramatically increase productivity and efficiency, while also helping the industry maintain a high production output during this shortage.
Ultimately, best-in-class oil and gas companies are realizing that the future of the industry lies in automation. Modernizing internal processes with automation, along with better access to information about operations and maintenance, will help the industry streamline production and distribution and allow for a higher yield.
Automation is extremely versatile, making it an ideal aid to daily operations. As such, there are several areas where it can make an immediate and lasting difference for oil and gas companies.
The measurement of pressure and flow of oil is a task that can easily be improved through automation. Installing smart sensors which connect to centralized monitoring software, allow pressure, flow, and level of oil to be reported remotely from the field, without the need for on-site crew. Upon receiving this information, rig crews can monitor and adjust settings as needed.
The energy industry has started the move toward digitization with more sensors collecting data from rigs around the world, but there are still areas oil and gas companies can improve within an increasingly diverse energy market. In the office, new processes and technologies now require improved collaboration between departments in order to achieve success. Going digital can enhance internal communication and simplify projects by allowing engineering teams – who may be working on 3D printing materials – to work more efficiently with the energy companies to better manage data and project requirements.
