Remote Operations is the solution for our ‘lower for longer’ industry

With the UK continental shelf entering a phase of maturity and everyone involved in the industry adjusting to a ‘lower for longer’ environment, maximising value from the basin poses an increasingly critical challenge.

As oil and gas becomes more difficult and costly to extract, new approaches are required to maximise the economic benefits for both the UK and the industry as a whole. Andrew Mills, Managing Director of Servelec Controls Oil & Gas, explains the approach his company is taking to help customers adapt to the changing industry landscape.

“At Servelec Controls, we strongly believe that remote operation and monitoring is the most viable solution to extend the life of the UKCS, and an effective alternative to costly and irreversible decommissioning. As an industry, automating production and remote monitoring of offshore facilities will become an increasing necessity to maintain the UK Continental Shelf’s competitiveness.”

With over 40 years experience as a leading systems integrator in the oil and gas industry, Servelec Controls understands the changes prevalent in the industry since the seemingly irreversible reduction in oil price. Mills expands; “As one of the largest independent systems integrators in the UK, our solutions are used in complex, high hazard industries where safety and efficiency are key. The benefits experienced by our customers include performance improvement, reduced risk, regulatory compliance, improved reliability and cost effective ageing asset management.

“With a full project lifecycle approach to remote operations incorporating ongoing maintenance and support, Servelec Controls is supporting customers with enabling the future viability of their platforms through reduction of opex, efficiency savings and minimisation of risk – all whilst ensuring safety in all we do.”
