Case study: Connected Construction

Digital technology is shaping the future of the oil, gas and renewable energy industry and helping us find new ways to design, build, maintain and operate energy assets and train the next generation.

Created in conjunction with Accenture Industry X.0, Connected Construction tracks people, equipment and materials on site, enabling real-time insights and decision-making which, in turn, improves performance. It is currently undergoing controlled trials at a Petrofac EPC project in the Middle East.

  • Increasing operational efficiencies
  • Empowering and speeding up decision making
  • Increasing predictability in asset performance
  • Improving capital project’s spend efficiency
  • Assuring the delivery of projects on time
  • Maximising productivity and uptime

Petrofac designs, builds, operates and maintains energy facilities, supporting our customers to unlock more value across the life cycle of an asset. We’re future-proofing our business, combining technology with our engineering, construction and operations know-how to find new solutions to today’s challenges. Our goal is clear: deploy digital technologies to minimise asset downtime, reduce idle labour time, avoid delivery delays and safely lower operating and project costs to drive value for our clients and shareholders.
