In fact, technology has become an indispensable tool in the production process of several 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 is directly related to technological innovations.
An example of this was the last edition of OTC Brasil. 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 rigs, equipment protection, drilling and monitoring has also been emerging, and this is where technology comes in. Drones,
for example, have come as a great facilitator, as they can reach hard-to-reach locations 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 these technologies also ends up requiring skilled labor, which contributes to the specialization of these professionals.
