Digitalization challenges for Oil & Gas and Petrochemical companies

The oil and gas industry faces unique challenges as it looks to keep pace in an ever-evolving and highly competitive global market. Often operating in harsh or complex environments, they must find ways to optimize operations and boost efficiency while also protecting worker safety and security. At the same time, sustainability goals have to be met, including those related to carbon emissions.

Four digital transformation challenges for Oil & Gas and Petrochemical companies

  • Optimize operations
  • Enhance safety and security measures
  • Boost operational efficiency
  • Reduce carbon emissions and sustainability.

How Oil and Gas Industry 4.0 can help

Industry 4.0 technologies have the potential to redefine the oil and gas industry. But navigating the complexities of digital transformation in oil and gas while ensuring seamless integration with existing infrastructure isn’t easy. From managing vast amounts of data to safeguarding critical assets, the journey to oil and gas Industry 4.0 can be daunting.

How can you realize the full potential of Oil and Gas Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0 technologies can transform your operations by providing more control over how you track and manage your assets, enhancing safety and compliance measures, increasing data transparency and generating more meaningful insights from your data, improving overall operating efficiency, and more.

By combining new applications and devices with pervasive, reliable wireless connectivity and edge computing, Industry 4.0 makes it easy for people, processes, sensors and legacy machines to work as one — and in doing so, improve your business outcomes.

How to harness the power of oil and gas Industry 4.0

Oil and Gas Industry 4.0 use cases

Industry 4.0 brings many exciting opportunities for oil and gas companies: from real-time monitoring, automation and process optimization to predictive maintenance and rich group communications. But you can’t take full advantage of these technologies by relying on Wi-Fi and legacy application-specific networks such as advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), two-way radio (TETRA, P25) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems.

What it takes to digitally transform oil and gas operations

To digitalize and automate your operations, you need a flexible and reliable networking platform that:

  • Meets the high performance, reliability and security requirements of your mission-critical operational technology (OT)
  • Supports high-bandwidth edge computing applications while protecting your industrial data
  • Provides robust connectivity and real-time monitoring for all industrial devices, video cameras, IoT sensors, machines and vehicles
  • Collects data from industrial IoT (IIoT) sensors and transforms it into operational insights and supports autonomous actions
  • Eases your oil and gas digital transformation by avoiding any disruptions to your day-to-day operations
  • Deploys, operates and integrates effortlessly with your existing networks and assets
  • Works seamlessly with the Wi-Fi networks you rely on for basic IT connectivity.

Nokia’s industrial connectivity solutions can help you drive digital transformation in oil and gas — so you can enhance operational efficiency and gain a competitive edge.
