In line with today’s turbulent market landscape especially in the Oil and Gas industry, leading Communications Services Company, MainOne has urged forward-looking enterprises to gain competitive advantage by embracing digital transformation. The company’s Head, Public Sector Sales, Gimba Mohammed made the call during a presentation during the recently concluded annual conference of the Petroleum Technology Association of Nigeria (PETAN).

According to Mohammed, the collapse in global crude prices and effects on economy requires oil and gas companies to leverage today’s technologies to boost operational efficiency. Mohammed highlighted critical trends in the industry such as the exponential increase in data creation, especially in upstream segments, decreasing onshore production, high security risk quotients and increasing community issues which impact negatively on uptime and reliability. He emphasized key learnings from advanced markets including adoption of Business Process Outsourcing and reliance on real-time data and noted that Nigerian Oil & Gas companies have an opportunity to adopt similar strategies given the existing infrastructure and operational challenges. He thus urged industry players to take advantage of the company’s tailored solutions to the Oil and Gas industry to ensure uptime and reliability.

Mohammed also announced the company’s plans to extend its Nigerian-Cameroun subsea cable down to the oil producing South-South region and emphasized how this will significantly improve connectivity services in the Niger Delta, enabling Oil companies to access the internet more effectively and also interconnect with their home offices. He specifically noted the importance of this project for enhanced connectivity of digital oil fields to MainOne’s premier Tier III Data Center, MDX-i.
