LONDON, UK — (SBWIRE) — 19 October 2022 — A new publication by GlobalData Plc titled Virtual Reality (VR) in Oil and Gas – Thematic research finds that virtual reality can improve the training and development of oilfield personnel. We anticipate that it will play an important role in transforming. Major oil and gas companies such as Saudi Aramco, Equinor and Shell are using VR to simulate the physical environment of their training rooms. Additionally, trainees will be provided with VR headsets to provide an immersive experience of facilities such as offshore production platforms, gas processing plants, and refineries.

See report outlook:

Virtual reality has also become mainstream in the post-pandemic oil and gas sector, as COVID-19 has pushed companies to adopt remote work. Most employees are now back in the office, but shifts are expected to continue. This is expected to accelerate the development of his robust, industry-specific VR devices and software platform to support VR adoption. By enabling oil and gas engineers to virtually explore production facilities, VR can help extract maximum value from digital twins. Companies such as Shell are creating digital twins of Singapore’s integrated refineries to facilitate remote monitoring and improve operational efficiency and safety.
