How AR Can Enhance Oil and Gas Workplace Safety standard

With over 10,000 workers to join the Oil and Gas industry between 2020 and 2021, the safety of workers continues to be a pressing issue. Safety in the Oil and Gas workplace will continue to be risky for many reasons, chief among which is the industry’s dependence on heavy machinery as a core component of its operation. While the standard safety implementations have only served to mitigate risk to a certain degree, there is more that still needs to be done. The Oil and Gas industry has deeply troubling statistics, with over 60% of risk factors classified as “serious,” meaning that the hazards were likely to result in “death or serious physical harm”. AR when implemented can better the odds of workplace ...

PSO MYSTRAS GENERAL VISUAL INSPECTIONS WITH REAL WEAR HMT-1Z1: REPORT standard

Deep Water Consultancy and Engineering Services partnered with us at IngresQR to bring cutting edge augmented reality to offshore General Visual Inspections (GVI) and functionality testing on board FPSO Mystras. FPSO Mystras services the Okpoho and Okono fields, OML 119. The Okono field produces oil from subsea wells tied-back to the Mystras FPSO located at the field. Oil from Okpoho is produced via a platform linked to the FPSO by pipeline. Oil is exported from the FPSO by shuttle tanker The inspection was aimed at identifying defective and aging components that need to be either upgraded or changed out completely. In the short term, it was also to identify anomalies currently being experienced offshore pertaining to subsea dependent units. 1. UNITS INSPECTED The ...

How Augmented Reality Devices and Wearables Can Support Industries In Nigeria: Full Review standard

Augmented reality (AR) merges the physical world with the virtual world. This is just as fascinating as it is technically complex – especially with AR glasses, which are coming into fashion.   These Smart Glasses are a new generation of wearable devices, and prominent examples include Microsoft Hololens or Google Glass. Smart Glasses combine (and blends) the virtual world with the physical world. These glasses are typically a new form of media devices. They are more than just wearables or a new generation of smartphones. They are not just “EyePhones”. Smart glasses are the future of media technology.  But the real question now is... How Do AR Glasses Work? Here we will take a full review of how Augmented reality glasses really work ...

COVID-19 Pandemic Impact On The Oil Industry In Nigeria In 2020 standard

Covid-19 Pandemic had a major impact on the operations of the oil and gas industry in Nigeria. In fact, the oil supply/demand imbalance is occurring in tandem with the depressed need for chemicals and refined products stemming from industrial slow-downs and travel restrictions in the wake of COVID-19. Consequently, the short- to medium-term outlook for most oil companies appears to be more challenging now than ever. That's why companies are paying closer attention to augmented reality for business continuity and sustainability of the oil and gas sector. According to NNPC’s Monthly Financial and Operations Report for January 2020, Independents accounted for 4.71% of national crude oil and condensate production, which stood at 60.80 million barrels as of December 2019. These operators, however, ...
