Oil and gas industry

Augmented reality in the oil & gas industry

AR digitalizes processes in the oil & gas industry, one of the major powers of the energy sector

The oil&gas industry

The oil & gas industry, exceeding $2.1 trillion worth as of 2021 and 1.7 million employees globally, includes exploration, refining, transporting petroleum, and its derivatives.

Challenges

Occupational hazards

The industry related to highly flammable and explosive materials and complex processes is inextricably associated with constant threats to the company’s properties, human life, and health.

Business continuity

Companies operating in the ever-changing industry need to respond to its dynamics and demands in order to maintain business advantages, profitability, and increased equity position.

Operational downtimes

The industry suffers heavily each time an interruption occurs. Technical failures, lack of maintenance, and human errors halt mining and processing machinery affecting productivity.

Information flow disruptions

Lack of standardization in data gathered and shared across the industry, no tools aimed at retaining knowledge from more retiring employees result in uneven staff expertise.

The solution

The AR platform carries two main modules, aimed at solving industrial challenges in the oil & gas field
digital workflows
Digital Workflows
Create interactive training, instructions, and service procedures.
remote support
Remote support
Connect your technicians working in the field and experts located far away.
The following features are at hand to support the execution of processes in the oil & gas industry using AR
Real-time access
AR grants users direct, immediate access to gathered resources, as the platform stores procedures, documentation, checklists, and can gather data from internal systems like SCADA, MES, ERP.
Workflow creator
No coding skills are needed to create step-by-step instructions for employees. The set-up reminds of building blocks and requires no specialized devices.
Digital twins
Virtual clones of machinery and other physical objects support predictive maintenance, helping employees glance inside the mechanisms without disassembling them and stopping operations.
Heavy-duty potential
The platform is compatible with the most advanced devices used with protective gear, allowing freedom of movement. Convenience is crucial for staff working in demanding environments.

Benefits of Nsflow

Risk mitigation

Real-time expert support helps guide on-site employees through potentially dangerous situations, allowing them to overcome machine failures without compromising safety.

Improved cost-efficiency

The AR platform facilitates savings by reducing the need for employee travel and accommodation, as well as by minimizing human errors and expenditures on traditional training.

Reduced downtimes

Supporting industrial processes with AR allows a significant reduction of interruptions, due to predictive maintenance and faster recognition of errors in the production environment.

Retained knowledge

Digital assets contain standardized training resources and instructions, available to workers also after previous generations of experts retire, eliminating issues with the so-called tribal knowledge.
