Offshore sector grows with new technologies

In fact, technology has become today a tool indispensable in the production process of various areas, and is no different for the offshore segment. Year after year expanding around the world, the sector has attracted investors and offered new job opportunities, a factor that has a relationship with technological innovations.

An example of this was the last edition of OTC Brazil, which took place in October 2019. With three-day programming, the event brought together E&P professionals and energy leaders to discuss industry technologies and knowledge. On the last day, the theme was "Digital Transformation" and multinational companies talked about their projects and results. Just as oil exploration has advanced, the need for innovations in platforms, protective equipment, drilling and monitoring has also been emerging, and that is where technology comes in.

Drones, for example, came as a great facilitator, as reach places that are difficult to access that would pose risks to technical professionals in the sector. Thus, various activities, such as inspection of oil fields, can be performed more easily and safely. The use of technologies also ultimately require skilled labour, which contributes to the specialization of these professionals.
