The rapid progress of technology such as big data and analytics, sensors, and control systems offers oil and gas companies the chance to automate high-cost, dangerous, or error-prone tasks. Most oil and gas operators are starting to capture these opportunities and doing well to accelerate their efforts. Companies that successfully employ automation can significantly improve their bottom line operations.

While automation offers many potential benefits in the upstream value chain of exploration, development, and production and transportation, some of the biggest opportunities are in crude transport operations, such as increased safety, security and decreased down time. Given the increase in oil and gas industry's substantial transport operations, optimizing these operations are essential. Automation creates several opportunities to that end: maximizing accuracy and efficiency in transport operations

This article is based on the application of digital technologies in the field of Crude Oil Transportation for improving Safety and Security while reducing the overall time taken for Crude Transportation Operations at Suvali Onshore Terminal. Digitization and automation of crude transportation operations in oil & gas industry leads to elimination of crude pilferage, elimination of manual errors, efficient crude loading operations, real time monitoring of crude transport operations, ease of measurements, reduction in disruption of crude tanker operations etc
