The Challenges of the Oil & Gas Industry

Global demand for oil, gas and petroleum-based products has reached record levels. The industry is continuing to search for ways to reduce operating costs, improve productivity through automation, increase safety precautions, and exploit new fields. In addition, increasing demands have required oil and gas exploration and production to move to harsher environments – colder, hotter, and deeper. On top of all these requirements, oil and gas operators and EPCs struggle with designing the communications infrastructures to transform aging systems into today’s modern technology. Communications equipment must be reliable and able to withstand the challenges of working in this sector.

OCC’s harsh environment solutions for Oil and Gas applications provide consistent communication architectures based on high-quality products that boost reliability, availability, and performance, throughout the entire life cycle of an asset. Developed on OCC’s experience with extreme environments and our history of exceptional performance, our integrated solutions support DCS/PLC automation/control architectures, SCADA systems, CCTV /IPTV/CATV networks and numerous other applications essential to the oil and gas industry.
