Global Oil & Gas 4.0 Report 2021 – Underlying Technologies, Use Cases & Positioning Strategies for Telecom Operators –


DUBLIN – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – The report “Oil and Gas 4.0 – Underlying Technologies, Use Cases and Telco Positioning Strategies” has been added to offer.

“Oil and Gas 4.0 – Underlying Technologies, Use Cases and Telco Positioning Strategies” is a new global outlook report that provides an overview of the Oil and Gas 4.0 market.

It provides in-depth qualitative insights into the Oil & Gas 4.0 market, the Oil & Gas 4.0 value chain, and ecosystem dynamics. It also analyzes key trends in the Oil and Gas 4.0 market and provides insight into telecommunications activity, positioning approaches, and value propositions.

Oil & Gas 4.0 uses the foundations established by Industry 4.0 and relies on advanced technologies to increase efficiency, durability, achieve higher yields and create a safer and accident-free working environment. The traditional oil and gas industry generated excess data but struggled to exploit it.

Oil & Gas 4.0 is the use of technology to collect data, gain visibility into field operations and assets, gain actionable insights, and automate the oil and gas value chain. Some of the technologies exploited for Oil & Gas 4.0 are connectivity and 5G, IoT, cloud and edge computing, big data analytics, AI / ML, drones and robotics.

The report provides in-depth analysis of the following

  • The Oil and Gas Ecosystem: The report begins with an analysis of the oil and gas value chain and the latest industry trends affecting international oil and gas (IOC) companies.

  • The Oil & Gas 4.0 ecosystem: this section defines Oil & Gas 4.0 and the key elements of the digital transformation of the sector. Next, the report explores the technologies used in Oil & Gas 4.0 and their benefits, before mapping these technologies across the different stages of the Oil & Gas value chain.

  • Oil and Gas 4.0 – Use Cases: A detailed overview of the different Oil and Gas 4.0 use cases for IOCs to consider throughout the value chain, e.g. condition monitoring and remote control. The report then delves into the selected use cases – digital oilfields / digital twins, virtual reality in oil and gas, 4G / 5G campuses and private networks in oil and gas and drones in oil and gas – by analyzing their targeted results and the underlying technologies; along with positioning examples / considerations, these provide for telecom operators / ICT providers.

  • Oil and Gas 4.0 – Case Studies: This section provides eight case studies of digital transformation initiatives of international oil and gas companies and joint oil and gas 4.0 projects with telecom operators, hyperscalers and other vendors. ICT. The case studies cover Gazprom, BP, Petronas, Sinopec, ExxonMobil, Saudi Aramco, ADNOC and Petrobas. The case studies analyze these companies’ oil and gas 4.0 projects, technologies and partners they choose – for example telecom operators, hyperscalers, other IOCs and ICT providers.

  • Key Findings and Recommendations: The report concludes with a number of key findings and a set of recommendations for Oil and Gas 4.0 stakeholders, including telecom service providers, focusing on how operators telecommunications companies can position themselves as Oil and Gas 4.0 enablers and technology providers.


  • The oil and gas sector is undergoing critical changes – for example, fluctuating energy demand, oil prices and an urgent need to lead the energy transition.

  • Oil & Gas companies have turned to Oil & Gas 4.0 to stay ahead of this change, seeking increased operational efficiency, increased agility, streamlined processes and costs, operations smarter and safer and with a reduced environmental impact.

  • Telecom operators can position themselves as close partners of oil and gas companies in their transformation to Oil & Gas 4.0.

  • 5G and campus networks for the oil and gas industry will help unlock new use cases and applications. Telecom operators can act as connectivity facilitators and further strengthen their offerings with advanced computing and network slicing.

  • The main use cases of Oil & Gas 4.0 include predictive maintenance and remote asset and operations management.

  • Telecom operators can co-create use cases with industry verticals and with ecosystem partners, such as hyperscalers.

  • The IoT is the nervous system of Oil and Gas 4.0, where telecom operators can play an expanded role beyond simple connectivity.

  • Cybersecurity is a major consideration in Oil & Gas 4.0 configurations.
