Leaders in digital technology
Three of our facilities have been recognized by the World Economic Forum (WEF) as “Manufacturing Lighthouses” for their large-scale use of 4IR solutions. Our ‘Uthmaniyah Gas Plant, one of the world’s largest gas processing plants, uses AI solutions to increase productivity while enhancing the reliability of its facilities. The use of drones and wearable technologies at the plant, to inspect pipelines and machinery, has helped cut inspection times by 90 percent.
At our Khurais oil field, we utilize thousands of IoT sensors to monitor and forecast oil well behavior. Through the use of digital technology like this, we have reduced power consumption by 18 percent and maintenance costs by 30 percent, as well as cutting inspection times here by around 40 percent – maximizing the field’s operational efficiency.
Abqaiq, the world’s largest oil processing facility, is our most recent addition to the Global Lighthouse Network. Our deployment of a wide range of 4IR solutions at the Abqaiq facility – such as robots, smart drones, and the use of data and predictive modeling – enabled us to boost its performance and efficiency.
