What do a doctor, a soldier, a farmer, a homeowner – each have in common with a big oil company?
They use some of the same tools every day.
The same ultrasound that doctors use to check that all is well with a baby-to-be? British Petroleum (BP) uses to check for early warning signs of corrosion in storage tanks.
The military uses thermal imaging cameras to see inside buildings, and BP uses those cameras to see through pipes and catch leaks.
Farmers use drones to look over their fields, to see quickly and efficiently, what plants might need water or fertilizer. BP uses drones to look over its operations out in the field to quickly and efficiently look over its far-flung operations.
And you might put a security camera out by the front door, to wirelessly keep an eye on things – in the same way that BP uses wireless sensors in its refineries to keep an e-eye on those miles and miles of pipes, tubes and pumps.
Which is how a big oil company puts high tech tools in the service of the highest level of safety.
