RFID Transforming the Oil & Gas Industry

The Oil & Gas industry consists of a complex set of equipment ranging over many sites and large areas of land. Effective monitoring of assets in these environments has been a challenge. RFID is enabling the Oil & Gas industry to more fully automate which offers significant cost savings.

Here's how RFID can be used in Oil & Gas

  • With pipes for sensor monitoring such as depth, temperature.

  • Provide information about equipment such as age and usage to control lifecycle management.

  • Employee monitoring to maximize workplace safety.

Laydown Yard Management

In addition to monitoring employees and pipes, Oil & Gas also has many kinds of equipment that are store in off-site yards. This equipment is often expensive and finding this equipment quickly so that productivity is not brought to a halt. Active RFID is best suited for yard management.

The Infrastructure Challenge

One of the biggest challenges in tracking items in a laydown yard is insufficient communications infrastructure over the large geographic area. Although GPS tags area great fit in this environment, traditional GPS tags require a monthly subscription per tag.

V-Tag GPS brings affordability to the laydown yard

V-Tag GPS is an active RFID tag that automatically reports GPS coordinates of each asset in the laydown yard without requiring a monthly subscription for each tag. This means serious cost savings and a faster ROI.

How does V-Tag GPS Work

InfinID Technologies has created a cutting-edge hardware design which allows up to attain an impressive range of almost one mile. Tags simply need to be within range of a Gateway in order to communicate. Most sites only need one Gateway unit for full coverage.
