Oil and gas company Chevron has partnered with satellite IoT firm Wyld Networks to pilot a system to enable remote sensor connectivity within Chevron’s IoT infrastructure.
The Wyld Connect system, yet to be commercially launched, will be used to improve efficiency within the Chevron oil and gas operational environment by collecting data from IoT sensors in remote locations.
Wyld Connect is a ‘sensor to satellite’ technology developed by Wyld Networks that enables data to be collected anywhere in the world in areas where there is no cellular wireless coverage. The pilot will allow the partners to evaluate its effectiveness in managing sensor data from multiple infrastructure assets with Chevron’s global operations.
“Information capture through satellite connected IoT is fast becoming essential for companies looking to operate more efficiently in multiple market sectors from agriculture, maritime, to the oil and gas industry,” said Alastair Williamson, CEO of Wyld Networks.
“We are delighted to be a part of Chevron’s ambitions to capture data from previously difficult to reach and poorly connected areas to deliver efficiency and sustainability. Our ambition is to establish an ongoing commercial relationship with Chevron after a successful pilot of our solution.”
