The Digital Oilfield and Digital Oil Rig combines process management with digital technologies (i.e. IoT in oil and gas) to automate workflows. It relies on standard items such as oil pressure gauges and oil control valves equipped with IoT sensors to maximize productivity, reduce costs, and lower the risks associated with the extraction of oil and gas.
By embracing the Digital Oilfield, MCA hopes that our partners in the oil and gas industry will reap the benefits of these technological improvements, especially as it concerns worker safety.
Oil production is not expected to decline anytime soon. In fact, by 2035, experts predict that we will need to produce 33% more oil than we do today.
But the troubling fact remains: working on an oil rig or in an oilfield can be a dangerous occupation. When a disaster strikes, the digital oil rig or oilfield enables managers to make decisions faster and more efficiently. Effective wireless voice and data communications enable oil workers offshore and on to communicate with the right person at the right time.
Oil and gas companies need remote and automated control at wellheads, along pipelines, and at valves and gauges in hard-to-reach locations. In order to prevent leaks and fires, operators rely on MCA’s SCADA, M2M, Siren Alerting, and Communication solutions.
You have likely heard the cliche that the best offense is a good defense. Smart sirens from MCA play great defense in protecting your frontline workers in oil and gas. With OptiWarn from Motorola, MCA has a solution for alerting your entire team of a critical incident at the push of a button.
With our sirens, your workers and managers will not only be alerted to emergency situations, but they will have a more effective, coordinated response.
With Motorola WAVE, MCA offers a cloud-managed Push-to-Talk (PTT) platform that keeps your team connected across devices, networks, and locations. WAVE connects to cellular networks, making it easy to reach your people wherever they may be: from the middle of an oilfield to an offshore rig.
WAVE two-way radio communication is simple and easy to use. Everything you need to begin communicating with personnel across your oil and gas operation is available and ready to deploy out-of-the-box.
