But the industry still faces specific IIoT challenges. One is the lack of technical skills in workforces. Fortunately, enrichment programmes focussed on improving workers’ technical knowledge are quickly closing this skill gap.
Key fact: According to GETI data, only 4% of workers in the oil and gas industry are aged between 18-24, while 20% are aged above 55
Improved data readability is also closing the skill gap. Since IIoT applications are cloud-based, data is accessible on a range of devices, at any time. Data will have already been analysed and turned into valuable insights, requiring no human intervention.
There are also challenges that IIoT applications help energy companies overcome. For example, as an asset-intensive industry, oil and gas companies generate huge amounts of data, which can quickly become inconsistent, inaccurate, or corrupt.
IIoT solutions provide data cleansing, filtering out duplicated or inaccurate data records, improving data quality, and allowing operators to make stronger decisions.
