Autonomous robots on the drill floor are transforming oil and gas exploration, replacing dangerous manual operations with a new interconnected system of advanced robotics and software. The robotic systems operate on real-time information to perform tasks in an autonomous, safe, repeatable and highly precise manner.
These advances have an immediate impact on rig operations by reducing the number of offshore workers, improving operational cycle times, and dramatically increasing safety by replacing humans in the red hazardous zone.
