congatec – a leading vendor of standardized and customized embedded computer boards and modules – introduces a new rugged class of embedded edge server technologies designed for the digitization of the upstream and midstream oil and gas industry. Both sectors are characterized by distributed assets and infrastructures in harsh environments and therefore require ultra-robust embedded platforms for the digital transformation challenge that offers a huge potential for cost savings.
“The International Energy Agency estimates that digitization can reduce production costs in the oil and gas sector by up to 20 percent. According to auditing and consulting firm PWC, there is great potential for savings through more efficient maintenance and better operation of assets. There is also further potential for savings in the supply chain, through the use of artificial intelligence and integrated platforms that connect organizations with external partners,” explains Diethard Fent, Manager Sales Partner EMEA at congatec.
“By digitizing these processes, companies in the upstream and midstream sector can potentially save up to $1 trillion in capital and operating costs i. Realizing this potential requires extremely robust embedded edge server technologies such as those offered by congatec. Our IoT and solution-ready system platforms for solution providers, system integrators and end users are based on these technologies,” said Martin Frederiksen, oil and gas computing expert and Managing Director of Diamond Point.
