Predictive Maintenance - Thematic Research

Predictive Maintenance - Thematic Research


Predictive maintenance tools evaluate the condition of operational equipment and predict its maintenance requirements in order to achieve optimum performance and prevent malfunction. It utilizes automated condition monitoring and advanced data analytics to gather vital equipment statistics - such as vibration, temperature, sound, and electric current - and compare them with historical records of similar equipment to detect signs of deterioration. Predictive maintenance is a fairly mature concept and has been widely deployed in the oil and gas industry over the last twenty years. The increasingly volatile oil price environment is giving an added lift to the adoption of predictive maintenance technologies to help companies cut back on operational expenditure by optimizing maintenance scheduling and driving productivity. Recent advancements in cloud-based data analytics and the rise of the digital twin in oil and gas operations are extending the boundaries of predictive maintenance technologies, making it a reliable tool for monitoring asset integrity.
