Oil and Gas

OAT real-time enabled a heavy equipment manufacturer's asset management system with RFID, Wi-Fi and GPS technology to track specialized construction equipment, resulting in reduced asset shrinkage, expedite costs and asset inventory.

Oil and Gas companies face increasing pressure to innovate and create new sources of revenue while minimizing risk and operating costs. Auto-ID technology provides the necessary operational visibility and measurability to drive process improvement, provide cost savings and uncover new opportunities.

Upstream Field Operations

Exploration and Production needs to track heavy equipment, specialized tools and materials, production infrastructure and field workers across geographically distributed worksites. OAT Tool Tracking and Equipment Tracking applications automate the tracking of field assets and enable real-time alerts for potential issues as they arise. Real-time visibility improves asset utilization, facilitates compliance and reduces operating costs.

OAT real-time enabled a process manufacturer's SAP system to provide automatic inventory replenishment, resulting in reduced on-hand inventory and improved customer satisfaction.

Downstream Manufacturing

As process manufacturers, Oil and Gas refiners must carefully monitor materials handling, batch processing and equipment maintenance. Real-time visibility from RFID automates and error-proofs manual sourcing, material management, work-in-process tracking and equipment tracking, helping to flag process issues before they propagate through the supply chain. OAT Tool Tracking and Equipment Tracking applications monitor tools and equipment across facilities, eliminating manual check-in & check-out processes and production delays due to lost or out-of-spec equipment. OAT Work-in-Process tracking confirms batch execution against process orders and enables more efficient line sequencing for individual batches and materials.


Oil and Gas companies face the challenge of optimizing material and resource constraints across a global supply chain. Real-time visibility from RFID automates sourcing, material movement and fleet management, reducing inventory and transportation costs without compromising on-time delivery. OAT Automated Goods Receipt tracks inbound materials from the receiving dock, minimizing expedite costs and production delays. OAT Reusable Asset Tracking and Container Pedigree track Reusable Containers associated with work orders through receipt, execution and shipment, providing audible and visual alerts to prevent containers from being delivered to the wrong location.

The OAT Foundation Suite software platform is built for demanding, enterprise-scale deployments and provides both a global view of asset movement while enabling real-time process alerts at the site and operator level, enabling proactive error detection and correction. It integrates easily with ERP, MMS and Field Service and MRO systems, keeping business systems and dashboards updated in real-time.

OATaxiom analytical and data warehousing tools are optimized for high volumes of sensor data and provide a detailed record of asset movement, to facilitate continuous improvement.
