Cost Overruns: O&G projects experience an average of 40% in cost overruns (Source: Energy Policy Journal, 2020).

Project Delays: Around 75% of upstream oil and gas projects suffer delays (Source: Energy Policy Journal, 2020).

Maintenance and Downtime Costs: Downtime in oil and gas operations can cost up to $260,000 per hour (Source: Aberdeen Group).

The Problem Landscape in a Multi Billion dollars Industry

Profitability and Efficiency Challenges


Inefficient Project

With so many moving parts, keeping everything coordinated can be a nightmare. Traditional project management methods often fall short, leading to miscommunication, confusion, and mistakes.

Safety Risks

The current planning and construction processes in the oil and gas sector mostly rely on historical data and the expertise of the involved personnel.

Inefficient Project

Oil and gas projects come with significant inherent safety risks, including equipment failures, environmental hazards, and human errors.

Data Silos and Collaboration Barriers


Limited Data Visibility Across Layers

Creating a unified data source that fosters collaboration across all layers of the organization is a critical challenge. Investors may see this as a priority to drive efficiency and innovation

Vertical Data Silos

Breaking down data silos within the company can improve communication and decision-making at all levels, making it an important concern.

Lack of Real-time Data Utilization

Current processes are unable to efficiently leverage real-time data from the site and equipment.

“Digital Transformation Barriers in the Oil & Gas Sector”

“The oil and gas industry lags in digital transformation due to resistance, project failures, and stalled initiatives. Existing solutions often demand high expertise and heavy implementations, creating barriers to adoption.”

Why does the Industry need a solution ?

Digital Innovation in Engineering

To Leverage technological Advancements

Digital Twin for Improved Estimates: Utilizing digital twin technology allows for more accurate estimates, faster engineering processes, and better collaboration.
On-Site Issue Management: Digital twin technology can help manage and resolve issues on-site by efficiently transferring information between the site and project management.
Web-Based Tool for Integration: A web-based tool that integrates all project information can greatly enhance the efficiency of EPC projects.
Real-Time Comparison: The technology allows for real-time comparison between the as-built model and the actual construction, enabling efficient changes and adjustments during project execution.
Single Source of Truth: Digital twin technology provides a single source of truth with up-to-date information, enabling good decision-making.

Operational Complexity and Efficiency Optimization

To Maximize Project Management and Efficiency

Increasing Complexity in Projects: The increasing complexity of projects, shorter investment frames, and market instability contribute to difficulties in estimating prices and timelines.
Material Management: Combining digital twin technology with site material management can help avoid idle hours and improve construction sequencing and work breakdowns.
Efficiency in EPC Projects: Utilizing digital twin technology can significantly improve efficiency by consolidating and visualizing various project data in one clear view, eliminating the need for multiple software and reducing conflicts among project members.

Nine out of ten companies invest significantly in new digital technology. However 2/3rds do not achieve the desired better outcomes

• Strategic failure building the right operating environment and incentives to create a data centric culture.
• Inability to operationalize data and technology for more effective decision- making as well as completion of projects on time and within budgets.
