Explosions, leakages, and incidents related to trespassing, theft, vandalism, piracy, terrorism, sabotage, hostile vehicles, malfunctioning devices, and even accidents are not unheard of in the Oil and Gas industry. These incidents can cause organizations a lot of financial and reputational damage and adversely impact the wider supply chain and stakeholders.

But what if you could predict and prevent such incidents?

How does AI-powered video analytics help with that?

This blog reveals the answer.

Oil and Gas Surveillance: Traditional Stand-alone Devices vs. Nex-gen, Integrated Systems

In the Oil and Gas industry, a modern surveillance system goes beyond stand-alone cameras, sensors, drones, and other devices. These traditional devices often operate in siloes producing lots of reports, footage, and information that helps in decision making. But at the same time, they cannot provide complete, holistic, effortless visibility into the site and its operations, assets, and people.

In contrast, a next-gen surveillance system, designed and built by a systems integrator like MVP Tech – Convergint MEA, seamlessly integrates multiple devices that coordinate and The Transformational Power of AI Analytics for Oil and Gas

AI-enabled security systems use advanced techniques like machine learning to continually monitor Oil and Gas operations and facilities. The system automatically analyzes the wealth of data generated by the security devices in these facilities, thus eliminating the need for time-consuming and burdensome manual analyses. In addition, it generates alarms, notifications, and useful insights that allow the security teams at Oil and Gas organizations to respond proactively to emerging situations like intruders, fires, accidents, gas leaks, and more.

AI video analytics also enables Oil and Gas operational personnel to identify malfunctioning machinery, inadequately protected personnel, missing or sabotaged equipment, and many more. In all these situations, they can leverage timely and real-time analytics to identify real issues and respond early to prevent damaging repercussions and better protect the location, assets, people, and even the environment.

Here are some key applications that AI video analytics is transforming in Oil and Gas :

  1. · Automatically schedule and perform site and asset inspections and raise alarms on detecting issues or threats.
  2. · Detect violations of safety procedures and precautions, such as whether workers are wearing PPE kits to minimize accidents and injuries.
  3. · Implement preventive maintenance by automatically monitoring materials and equipment to detect defects or malfunctions, removing the need to manually schedule and track maintenance tasks.
  4. · Detect dangers and hazards, such as fires or gas leaks, and send automatic notifications to help accelerate response.
  5. · Monitor the site perimeter for trespassers, intruders, and unauthorized/hostile vehicles, and display relevant information on a centralized panel to enable easy viewing and fast action.
  6. · Detect access violations to restricted areas and enable appropriate and fast action against violators.
