Oil company Shell wants to take advantage of an internet of things (IoT) connectivity solution to improve the company’s monitoring capabilities for its operations in Nigeria. 

Shell is vertically integrated and is active in every area of the oil and gas industry, including exploration and production, refining, transport, distribution and marketing, petrochemicals, power generation and trading. It also has renewable energy activities, including in biofuels, wind and hydrogen.

Last year, U.S. IoT connectivity provider Ingenu and Croatian producer of industrial electronics and power electronics devices Koncar Inem delivered an IoT connectivity solution to provide digital oilfield capabilities to the Shell Nigeria pipeline facility. The Digital Oilfield (DOF) solution provides pipeline surveillance and wellhead monitoring capabilities to remote infrastructure in the Niger Delta.

Cutting Edge (technology has been on the market for < 2 years)

This integrated technology platform offers faster analysis and more efficient data management to provide insight into field processes

The solution made oilfield operation is safe and efficient.


Ingenu said that its low-power, wide-area RPMA network solution required minimal infrastructure, which resulted in a total project cost savings of more than $1 million over the alternatives.
