For the past decade that we have been surveying the oil and gas industry, new drilling techniques, wireless technologies including WSN and cloud infrastructure has transformed North America from a heavily dependent importer to the largest global producer. In this same time frame, WSN has been securely and reliably deployed in large numbers from offshore platforms to arctic oilfields. Our research shows a potential cost reduction of up to 80% using wireless sensor network automation systems combined with cloud connected production optimization solutions. By 2018, millions of oil and gas WSN devices will be deployed worldwide for wellhead automation, pipeline operation and exploration of new and existing oilfields. This represents an annual market worth $2 billion at this time.
