Improving safety with technology

Digitalization and visualization technologies are proving increasingly useful in making the world safer and more efficient

At BP, our wells data platform ARGUS holds historical and real-time data on nearly all of the 2,500 wells that we operate globally, giving our engineers the ability to access and analyse alerts quickly and remotely. This enables early identification and rapid response should an issue arise.

Automation is changing the way we access and monitor our operations in difficult to reach areas.

For example, we are testing an autonomous pipeline survey system along our Clair field pipeline in the UK North Sea. Unmanned vessels use artificial intelligence to inspect the pipeline, gather data and provide almost instant alerts if they detect anything unusual.
