Deep Dive: Robotics in Oil & Gas, Improve Safety and Productivity
Dirty and dangerous, yes, but there’s nothing dull about the oil and gas industry. The Three Ds are more like danger, Will Robinson, danger – danger. But the times they are a-changin’… What used to be one of the most dangerous jobs in the world is now augmented. Now we see the emergence of autonomous mechatronic solutions; From roughneck, underwater, aerial and snake bots, to robotic processes that increase the service life of oilfield equipment, and even robotic gas stations; robots protect workers, improve process productivity and reduce costs.
