Owing to the rise in global demand along with the volatility of prices and stringency of environmental guidelines, oil and gas companies face three main challenges – cost reduction, performance optimization, and improvements in environmental footprint.
Technological advancements, as we are aware, has taken over the world and the global oil and gas industry is no exception to this rule. Deployment of technology has given rise to digital oilfields that use specific tools to read and interpret data on pipelines, wellhead conditions, and mechanical systems. Leading oil and gas companies have even leveraged big data analytics to increase oil production while cutting down on operational costs. However, just leveraging technology to enhance product experiences won’t help companies to completely capitalize on the benefits of innovation.
Moreover, the global oil and gas industry faces major regulatory challenges being a significant consumer of water and energy resources. This acts as a major constraint for oil and gas companies; thereby, compelling them to redefine their extraction, production, and distribution techniques. Also, to obtain their license to operate, oil and gas companies have to ensure transparency in the environmental management of their business activities.
