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

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.
