Optimizing Oil and Gas Production: Connecting Upstream, Midstream and Downstream Operations

Today, smart devices – elements of the Internet of Things (IoT) embedded in wellheads, on compressors and pump stations, and within refineries – are yielding a new wealth of operational information. But making sense of that data is another matter. That’s why leading oil and gas companies are taking advantage of advanced analytical software and the industrialization of Ethernet to create The Connected Enterprise. By smoothly integrating information technology with operations technology, oil and gas companies can better leverage the full value of their asset information, and accelerate high-performance petroleum production.
