As all industries move towards a digital growth, the oil and gas industry is also not far behind. Digital oilfields are merging as the new-age technology-centric solutions that are allowing oil and gas companies to maximize their productivity and increase their profits. Digital oilfields are bringing together business process management with advanced information technology processes as well as engineering expertise to automate and streamline the tasks of various teams in the oil and gas industry. Digital oilfields have been around for the last ten years, but it is only recently that it has started becoming popular and achieved rapid strides in terms of design and deployment. The field of digital oilfields holds tremendous potential and is poised to expand to encompass almost every aspect of operations in the oil and gas industry. It is expected that the industry will reach a value of approximately USD 18 billion by the end of 2022.

Some analysis suggests that companies can increase their profits by nearly 25% through the use of digital oilfields. Digital oilfields also provide access to take expertise to remote locations and lowers the decision time in key processes in spite of geographical boundaries.
