Considering the journey to a zero emissions world, Oil and Gas Industry's transition to zero emissions is in a challenging moment, as the sustainable transition means the elimination of the usage of fossil fuels. The UN's SDGs set the intention for reducing emissions to net zero. 1.5 °C as the target, which was set in the Paris Agreement. Global carbon emissions must reach zero by 2050, so Oil and Gas (O&G) companies must rethink their existing business model to expand.
For O&G companies, the opportunities can be divided into three phases:
AI and embedded technologies can help the Oil and Gas industry's transition to zero emissions by optimizing energy usage efficiency, reducing carbon emissions, and supporting renewable energy sources integration into operations. These technologies can help automate processes, monitor and analyze data, and optimize operations to reduce waste and emissions. In addition, assist in identifying and implementing new sustainable energy applications, such as geothermal production, hydrogen fuel cells, and carbon emissions capture and storage.
The Oil and Gas industry; has the task of reducing carbon emissions throughout its value chain, from exploration to distribution. Energy efficiency, overall performance optimization, and the transition to clean energy sources are vital. There are some strategies to adopt, and using essential tools such as AI and embedded technology is critical to address the following challenges:
Using CCS-embedded solutions helps to capture carbon dioxide emissions from company operations and store them underground. This reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions released into the atmosphere, optimizing advanced embedded technologies' performance to reduce costs.
Investing in renewable energy helps reduce carbon footprint and eliminate the dependence on fossil fuels. By implementing AI and embedded technologies, Oil and Gas companies can optimize their use of these energy resources and improve their efficiency.
AI use and embedded technology can help optimize energy consumption by monitoring and controlling processes to reduce energy waste and identify improvement areas.
Other challenges include new infrastructure development, finding new revenue streams, and adapting to changing consumer demands. The O&G industry is exploring partnerships and collaborations, investing in research and development (R&D), and pursuing a diversified portfolio of energy sources.
Digitalization is crucial to the Oil and Gas industry's transition to zero emissions to solve current and future challenges and be prepared for short and long-term goals. Digitalization makes possible machine and technology interconnectivity in the company's infrastructure. It provides an integrated platform monitored and controlled in real-time to ensure efficiency and identify improvement areas.
Additionally, digitalization can be leveraged to transition to renewable energy production as a new business model. AI and embedded technology help to handle this complex task. For example, determining which types of renewable energy are more suitable for operations. Analyze energy demand, production, and usage data, to determine a sustainable, efficient, cost-effective renewable energy services portfolio.
As mentioned, advanced technologies are crucial for a net zero emissions sustainable transformation. O&G companies can benefit from using AI and embedded technologies to achieve their goals in the following ways:
AI algorithms' use helps analyze large amounts of data in real-time, optimizing overall equipment and process performance, for example, reducing energy waste or pipe leakage.
Implementing AI in embedded systems can help to permanently monitor and analyze data from sensors, cameras, and other devices to detect and prevent safety hazards in the infrastructure and workforce.
AI algorithms can provide insights about data analysis and recommendations to enable optimal decision-making in any business area, such as new solutions or business models.
A good example is how Oil and Gas companies can implement AI and embedded technologies to control carbon emissions through greenhouse gas management. Al algorithms in remote sensing technology (such as satellites and drones), companies can monitor their operations and detect emissions sources in real-time.
AI algorithms analyze data collected from remote and aerial sensors to identify patterns in greenhouse gas emissions, providing better decision-making to improve solutions to target emission sources.
Additionally, AI and embedded technologies usage in GHG emissions have the potential to be a powerful tool for the Oil and Gas industry in their transition to net zero emissions. Helping to understand their emission sources and therefore develop the best sustainable solutions for their business and leverage them as service providers to their customers and other industries.
The potential of AI and embedded technologies in the Oil and Gas industry is promising. The industry must prepare for this future by investing in research and development and fostering innovation and collaboration to develop a more diverse and sustainable energy services portfolio.
AI and other advanced technologies in the future of every industry are crucial and are expected to play a significant role in the Oil and Gas industry's transition as the focus on decarbonization and renewable energy continues to grow.
The O&G industry can start preparing for the future by investing in AI and other advanced technologies R&D. Developing new technologies, sensors, algorithms, and embedded systems that can help optimize energy production, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and improve overall efficiency.
Another significant step is partnerships with IT companies to collaborate and facilitate innovation and advanced technologies adoption. Bringing together expertise from both sectors to discover new business models to create a renewed energy services portfolio offering the Oil and Gas industry business continuity but with new and better horizons for the sector, the environment, people, and the planet. The transition might seem complex, but industry future-proof is provided and will secure a position in a zero-emission future.
To choose the best technology, an Oil and Gas business must bet on AI and embedded technology implementation to comply with sustainable development goals and their goals. IT companies are the ones that can provide help; having a partnership is essential for successful digital transformation.
Information Technology (IT) companies can provide customized services and products for Oil and Gas sustainable embedded solutions' requirements, from the infrastructure to new technologies implementation, as well as the creation of new applications that can offer opportunities for renewed business models.
IT companies have expertise in digital transformation, AI technologies, and data analytics, which are essential for today and tomorrow. These technologies are the bridge to a new era; from now on, everything will have to be connected to control sustainable aspects and exploit any equipment or system for comprehensive efficiency. For example, IT companies can help to implement digital twins to enable simulations for different scenarios and provide better decision-making.
Moreover, IT companies will provide the expertise and support needed to create a new business services portfolio. They can help adopt new technologies and approaches necessary to the transition to zero emissions and renewable energy production and management. For example, Oil and Gas companies can work to organize the integration of renewable energy sources into their existing infrastructure. Develop new integrated renewable energy production and storage systems, such as hydrogen or geothermal vital to achieving zero-emission performance and development.
