Oil & Gas Solution
Operations in the Oil and Gas industry function under extreme environmental conditions, located in remote areas, and spread across geographies. With its machine to machine (M2M) communication capabilities, LPWAN is evolving as a potential solution that can be successfully channeled to deliver a positive business impact on the Oil and Gas operations.
The high cost of deployment of advanced metering infrastructure for resource consumption control is the significant barrier for utility companies. As traditional technologies like GPRS, ZigBee and Wireless M-Bus sti ll in consideration for such smart gas metering applications they do not provide the desired level of ROI.
With a new type of LWPAN wireless communication technology developed especially for smart metering and loT application, util ities can overcome the difficulties of massive rolling out of AMI.
Using the concept of loT communication and most robust LPWAN NB-Fi protocol loT has developed out-of-the-box solutions for smart gas consumption monitoring with plug and play meters and outstanding connectivity characteristics.Machine to machine (M2M) communication, driven by LPWAN, has huge potential for gaining popularity across O&G companies. It enables machines and systems to communicate with other devices. LPWAN and loT can help companies reduce costs, improve performance, enhance safety, and drive operational efficiencies. loT-enabled devices and systems can facilitate efficient O&G operations, with minimum human intervention, providing higher value than traditional technology and automation. Correctly implemented LPWAN solutions hold the potential to introduce efficiencies in upstream, midstream, and downstream operations.

IoT Technology for Oil & Gas
LPWAN integrated sensors deployed across the va lue chain – from exploration and production to the transportation of crude and refined oil – can bring in the much-needed visibil ity and workplace safety, with better control and maintenance of assets.
With the marriage of smart devices, advanced connectivity, and management platforms, loT and M2M communication are gaining traction in supporting collaboration. Employed in many areas of the O&G industry to increase efficiency, the technology is catalyzing the development of new business practices. Its use has accelerated with mobile and cloud innovation, advances in Big Data, and predictive analytics based on in-memory computing. And it’s becoming more affordable and practical as the size and price of sensors shrink. O&G companies that embrace these innovative technologies can gain first-mover advantage.
