(EPMag) The oil and gas industry is looking toward robotics and automation to improve operational efficiency and safety but lags behind other sectors in implementation. Rebecca Allison, manager for the Oil and Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) Innovation Hub’s Asset Integrity Solution Centre in Aberdeen, Scotland, explained that the application of robotics in offshore oil and gas is almost limitless, but that the industry has only “scratched the surface of what’s possible.”
“The robotics revolution will not happen in one year, but it may be quicker than many think,” Allison said. “It will have implications for jobs and skills, and it’s important we design and develop the right solutions and plan for a smooth introduction.”
