Oil and gas worksites are known to be some of the most hazardous work environments. Robots can help make these environments safer for their human counterparts by performing certain tasks that do not require humans to be present in potentially toxic environments. For example, four legged robots, mounted with sensors, thermal cameras, microphones and gas detectors are now being used to inspect offshore sites in real-time. These robots can be controlled by humans from safe distances and readings and results analyzed in real time safely and efficiently.

Robots also decrease downtime. By allowing workers to continue doing their regular job without pulling them out for unplanned inspection etc, business on the rigs continues as usual without interruptions and expensive downtimes.

With the ever increasing need to improve safety and working conditions while enhancing productivity and cost efficiency, robotics is a growing trend that we will be seeing in oil and gas and other industries.
