Process Automation in
Oil and Gas
There are several specific drivers for RPA adoption in the energy sector:
- High Cost of Regulatory Compliance – Various environmental protection regulations are causing companies to incur substantial capital, operating and maintenance, and remediation expenditures.
- Legacy Systems – Legacy IT systems aren’t always able to integrate with newer technologies, leaving IT teams constantly patching and updating to allow availability.
- Operational Risks – Operational hazards such as fires, severe weather, and geological events are a constant threat to oil and gas companies; delays in response can easily result in the disruption of operations.
