Robotics in Oil & Gas - Thematic Research

Demand for robots is revving up at a fast pace, due to robots becoming progressively cheaper, smarter, more flexible and easier to train. This is making it easier for robots to infiltrate new industries and spawn new use cases at scale. The oil and gas industry has geared up to deploy robotics across a wide range of applications in the upstream, midstream, and downstream segments, primarily to drive productivity and efficiency amid volatility in crude prices. Robotics offers the potential to automate repetitive, yet critical, tasks in field operations, such as taking readings from instruments, cleaning, and inspecting assets for signs of corrosion or wear. Recent technological advancements are enabling operators to deploy robots in terrestrial, aerial, and underwater configurations to carry out tasks that may be too risky to be undertaken by field personnel. Moreover, robotics technology providers and oilfield service providers are devising new business models, such as Robotics-as-a-service (RaaS) to drive the deployment of these technologies in field operations and reduce uncertainty over the total cost of ownership of robots.
