How Mobile Apps Can Help Rejuvenate the Oil and Gas Industry

The oil and gas industry has been struggling since 2015, thanks to low prices. Making matters worse is that some oil and gas fields across the world are becoming depleted. But it’s not all bad news for the industry. Mobile solutions can help rejuvenate the industry, notes a new report by Orbis Research, “Global Oil & Gas Mobility Market Size.”

Read how mobile solutions can help rejuvenate the industry, and get links to some compelling mobile oil and gas industry apps.The report finds, “Developing an enterprise mobility strategy can procure significant value in renovating the oil and gas business. It can reduce the time spent on mundane tasks and upsurge the overall productivity in the industry.”

The use of mobile apps and solutions in oil and gas companies, the report goes on to say, “results in significant savings and uninterrupted growth and development.” Mobile apps, it reports, increase efficiency and logistics, improve safety, and also can visualize data, helping oil and gas companies do things such as improve their ability to find sources of gas and oil, and extract oil and gas more effectively.

The report is backed up by a Gartner report, “Top 10 Trends That Affect Oil and Gas CIOs in 2018,” which says that the industry needs to embrace digital transformation and mobile apps in order to thrive. It concludes, “Digital innovation will intensify, driven by oil and gas company business strategies that continue to prioritize growth through efficiency, even as recovery continues.” It adds, “Scaling digitalization will be a key success factor for oil and gas CIOs.”
