The Importance of ESG in the Oil and Gas Industry

By Stonewall Engineering on Mar 16, 2022

Historically, Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues within the oil and gas industry has been placed in various positions along the priority scale.

However, as ESG public policy has become more of a focus in recent years, and advances in environmental friendly technology have been made available, ESG has become a high priority of most oil and gas operators. This trend is likely to continue as the industry grows and matures. Oil and gas companies that ignore ESG will find themselves at a competitive disadvantage and subject to regulatory penalties.

IoT For Industrial Automation

By Stonewall Engineering on Mar 2, 2022

The Internet of Things (IoT) is providing a major boost to the automation sector. Industrial automation firms that employ IoT solutions can benefit in several ways as it allows engineers to develop new technologies to tackle issues, improve processes (like in healthcare), and increase output.

The Internet of Things is the connection of inextricably identifiable electronic devices via data plumbing on the Internet, such as IP, cloud computing, and web services and healthcare services. It is fair to mention that the Internet of Things (IoT) has a significant impact on industrial automation, and it motivates us to utilize tablet computers, smartphones, virtualized systems, and cloud storage for data.

On the other hand, Industry 4.0 is the intersection of cyber-physical systems and the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT includes smart sensors that give managers more accurate information on which they can base their decisions for growth in today's competitive environment.

The industrial automation sector has started to adopt IoT technologies at a much slower pace as compared to other sectors such as healthcare and retail. However, this is changing now, and industrial automation companies are realizing the benefits of IoT technologies.

Let us examine the different ways in how the Internet of Things (IoT) is affecting industrial automation:
