We will answer your questions!

Why are digital technologies applied to resource development?
Effectively utilizing the digital technologies increases the profits of resource development businesses and enables operations in a safer manner.
Characteristics of Resource Development Effects of Utilizing Digital Technology
Resource development is a long-term business and that is expensive and time consuming. Each work process required lots of experts Automating work will speed up operations and greatly reduce costs
Oil and gas accumulate in the subsurface and are not directly visible. As a result, a large amount of available data will be used to predict oil accumulation structure and production volume AI, which can work 24 hours a day, can use big data and rapidly predict the oil accumulation structure and production volume with higher accuracy
People need to work at dangerous sites, such as the survey site, drilling site and production facilities Digital technology could reduce the number of personnel in the sites and allow work to be conducted more safely
