About this Podcast...

Part of the Oil and Gas Technology series

In this exclusive interview with Stig Petersen, Research Scientist in Information & Communication Technology for Sintef talks to Oil & Gas IQ’s Tim Haðdar about adoption of wireless technology in the oil and gas sector.

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and mobile tracking in general is becoming the standard of operations across different industries. Yet the introduction of this technology in the hydrocarbon industry has been slow at best.

With the mounting pressure to improve operational efficiency, improve health and safety and minimize operating risks whilst staying competitive, e-Tagging, e-Tracking and e-Permitting are gaining momentum across the industry.

During the interview, Stig touches on:

  • The history of RFID – from "Friend or Foe" in World War II to the present day
  • RFID as an umbrella for a multitude of active and passive wireless technology applications
  • The key areas of the oil and gas industry that can benefit from the large scale roll out of RFID e-tagging
  • The challenges involved in using RFID in an industry that operates in extremes of heat, cold and pressure
  • What the future will look like for wireless instrumentation technology
