RFID best practices asset tracking in the oil & gas industry

Engineering, drilling and construction company Saipem Corporation, which transports assets such as large pipe stacks worldwide, needed safe, automated asset tracking that would work in the presence of steel and seawater at temperatures of -50°C (-58°F) to 50°C (122°F).

Omni-ID supplied ATEX-compliant passive tags for hazardous environments for on metal and plastic installations, working with Saipem to pilot the asset tagging system across a number of offshore oil drilling bases.

Result? Accurate tracking and locating for valuable assets from pipes to buoys, saving money and improving control. In addition, the remote identification system boosted personnel safety.

Customer success story

Redefining inventory tracking at the coal mine

Australian resources exporter BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA) needed a faster, less error-prone method of tracking assets and inventories in its central warehouse. The mine lacked an accurate, efficient way to control labor and the cost of managing some 17,000 individual pieces of equipment.

Syscan International with partner Omni-ID developed a real-time inventory management system with Gen 2 UHF passive RFID, incorporating hard tags for motors, pumps and drills as well as paper-based smart labels for helmets and standard assets, associating each miner with their issued tools.

Result? Miners get to work faster, more accurate inventory, and an ability to pinpoint lost or stolen equipment.
