To succeed in today’s market, oil and gas operators must not only have accurate measurements on which to base their decisions, but they need to obtain this information in the most cost-effective way. Schlumberger Robotics Services empowers them to do both.
The use of robotics, automation, autonomous vehicles, and remote monitoring is revolutionizing industries worldwide. Schlumberger Robotics Services provides this technological advantage to our customers with an expanding suite of unmanned and remotely operated deployment solutions.
Our customers now have the ability to collect data in previously hard-to-access areas, such as around crowded infrastructure, in shallow water, or in remote or environmentally sensitive areas. Some of our solutions are completely autonomous, running for years entirely on wave power, solar energy, and other forms of environmentally friendly energy.
Equally appealing, this technology significantly lowers costs by reducing the personnel and equipment necessary to operate in remote locations. Our approach also eliminates the expense and risk associated with traditional ship-based data collection solutions. Operations that were once cost prohibitive are now economically feasible.
Advantages of robotic solutions are numerous:
