The impact of predictive maintenance in the oil and gas sector

ARC Advisory Group research indicates that investment in oilfield operations management systems, including predictive analytics applications, can provide significant operational value and ROI. It reveals that - depending on production levels - the financial benefit of increasing operational performance by two to three percent can translate into millions of dollars per year for very large projects.
