Oil & Gas

Oil & Gas 4.0


​​Oil & Gas 4.0 will transform the downstream, midstream and upstream activities into a connected, information-driven environment. Artificial Intelligent and Internet of Things will improve the oil and gas sector operations. However, both Smart Oil Economy and Industry 4.0 also look at improving manufacturing in the broader context of society and the environment, whether these improvements stem from science, engineering, informational technology (IT) or operational technology (OT).​

The Aim is to make Oil and Gas sector in the Kingdom of Bahrain is more efficient, more productive and create greater value.​

​​​​​ ​​​
The oil and gas sector played a vital role in sustainable development, it is the engine of the sustainable national economy by fueling economic growth and improving living standards. We embarked on sustainability initiatives such as the climate change strategy for the petroleum sector, including enhancing energy efficiency and environmental standards, water conservation, and mangrove restoration. The world is on the verge of an e​ra of unprecedented prosperity due to rapid advances in technology and a global middle class,​​ which will grow to five billion people by 2030, creating greater demand for energy and products derived from oil and gas. This is an opportunity for Bahrain to meet such demand and at the same time fuel the national economic growth by adopting Smart Oil Economy (SOE) as a critical enabler of economic growth in the 4th Industrial revolution era.

The Objectives of Oil & Gas 4.0

  1. ​​To enhance the operational efficiency
  2. To increase the efficient use of energy resources
  3. To maximize the performance
  4. To enhance the profitability
  5. To empower the sector employees
  6. To reduce the operational costs​
​ ​
Oil & Gas 4.0 is the technology-driven today to empower the future economy.
NOGA is leading the Oil & Gas 4.0 initiative in the Oil & Gas sector in Kingdom of Bahrain, we are working to embedding the innovation into every aspect in our business where applicable and where it has a compatible advantages to the Oil & Gas sector, we are determined to make the Oil & Gas Sector as  the destination hub for innovation.​

 
The Approach
