Oil and gas is part of daily life. It’s used to travel near and far, to fuel the transport of essential goods to global business, and to provide heat during cold months.
Despite efforts to identify alternative resources, the current reality remains—oil and gas fuels the world. According to the International Energy Agency, worldwide demand for oil and gas continues to grow and is expected to reach over 94 million barrels per day by the end of this year.
To meet growing demand many companies in the oil and gas industry are investing in digital technologies. Digital technologies can help companies reach remote sources of oil and gas at efficient cost while continuing to enhance environmental safeguards, operational safety, reliability, and security.
