Session Description
Viren Parikh, Director of Business Development at Ericsson, who is enthusiastic about how Private Cellular Networks can revolutionize the Oil and Gas industry. In this blog, we’ll explore his insights on unlocking value through private cellular-enabled use cases for digital transformation in upstream, midstream, and downstream operations, as shared at the Oil and Gas Automation & Digitalization Conference 2022.

Viren Parikh had shared his perspectives on the oil and gas industry undergoing significant changes, with technology playing a crucial role in this evolution. He likened this technological shift to the idea of using smartphones to enhance work safety and effectiveness, akin to having a highly intelligent assistant. Within the oil and gas sector, this transformation was made possible through the adoption of private cellular networks, which acted as the bridge connecting various aspects of the industry. Parikh had described their applications, including the monitoring of oil rigs to ensure smooth and secure operations, the inspection of pipelines to prevent leaks, and the optimization of production in facilities that processed oil. He had also stressed the importance of caution and proper training when implementing these networks, given their intricacies. Ultimately, Parikh had emphasized that these private cellular networks were driving the industry towards improved safety and efficiency as it progressed into the future.
