Internet of Things for Oil and Gas Companies

IoT for Oil and Gas Industry

IoT can improve every industry, from construction to medical to retail. Being able to monitor, track and control products in real time allows for companies to increase profits, as well as, save time and improve customer satisfaction. IoT systems allow for maximum efficiency of any organization, especially the oil and gas industry. The oil and gas industry requires precise measurements and tracking in order to operate smoothly, even a slight incident could be detrimental. As well, with the field becoming more competitive, IoT offers a step up, with pipeline monitoring, offshore monitoring, and fleet tracking, remote troubleshooting, and management, the abilities of IoT are essential for progress. Not to mention, the ability to ensure safety for employees and the environment.

IoT Fleet Tracking for Oil and Gas

Long gone are the days of sending out fleets without any communication. Now, with IoT, shipments and fleets can be tracked in real-time, along with the ship itself (which can be a dangerous and time-consuming task). Wirelessly track a fleet’s entire journey, no matter where they go. Temperatures, humidity, air quality, pressure, flow rates, volume, and other information can now easily be tracked with IoT. As a budget-friendly alternative, IoT allows you to record data in real-time that once took you hours, possibly days. The ability to remotely monitor parts of the ship and the ships themselves remove the employee from potentially dangerous situations. IoT is both a safe and convenient alternative to how information and fleet tracking use to be processed.

IoT Improving Safety

Safety is one of the largest concerns the industry constantly faces. From protecting those employed, as well as, being actively aware of any potential accidents that could harm the environment. IoT allows for companies to monitor and track their employees in real-time eliminating the concern of potential accidents or getting lost in dangerous conditions. Another potential hazard a company in this industry can face is the moral obligation to protect the environment, and if not done properly the harm to the brand can be irreversible. With IoT, warnings can be sent about potential hazards, allowing for them to be dealt with before they become detrimental. It’s even being used to complete tasks that may be too dangerous for employees to execute. Improving energy usage, lowering pollution, and avoiding oil spills and other accidents can change improve the company’s brand to a level above the competitions.

Real-Time Data

As stated earlier, data collection is crucial for the success of a company in the oil and gas industry. With the right IoT software, small improvements can make a notable difference in efficiency and accuracy. IoT allows for information to be gathered from anywhere and enables companies to make better, more well-informed decisions. Companies who use IoT have seen an improvement of production by 6-8% in matters of drilling and other oil and gas operations. With data constantly being collected, IoT offers the best solution of organization and storing.


Bottom line, the integration of IoT into the oil and gas industry will be involved in nearly every aspect of the supply chain, throughout daily operations to customer reflection and brand awareness.
