The ambition to operate as a Connected Enterprise has taken firm root across a range of sectors, yet the oil and gas industry has, to some extent, been behind the curve. This can be attributed to some unique challenges, such as the remote and often harsh operating environments of oil and gas production, that have made the process of digitally transforming operations more difficult.
Today’s oil and gas businesses operate in a volatile environment with profit margins under continual pressure. While demand is subject to fluctuation, the cost of supplying oil and gas products remains within their control. This has made priorities around optimising assets, improving operating efficiency, minimising capital expenditure and reducing operating costs ever more pressing.
It’s with this dedicated focus and purpose that we launched Sensia in 2019. A joint venture between Rockwell Automation and Schlumberger, Sensia helps oil and gas leaders to meet these priorities and bring the idea of the Connected Enterprise to life.
Unifying Sensing, Intelligence and ActionSensia is a unique entity in the oil and gas sector. The company combines the automation capabilities of Rockwell Automation and the petrotechnical expertise of Schlumberger to enable the delivery of scalable automation and digital solutions across the entire oil and gas supply chain. As a standalone organisation, the venture seeks to be the leader in digitally enabled oil and gas integrated solutions and provide complete lifecycle and process automation solutions from the reservoir to the refinery, including industry-leading oilfield technology and expertise.
