Fleet Tracking System for Oil & Gas Field Services

Remote monitoring of oil & gas extraction and transportation activities is a must-have capability for increasing not only efficiency, but safety in the oil & gas industry.

Automated tracking solutions can help accomplish these goals in the following ways.

Remote Oil and Gas Equipment Tracking

Being able to monitor the current status of equipment remotely helps to make oil extraction activities safer and more reliable. By checking tank levels, operation temperatures, fluid flow rates, and other key performance statistics remotely, you can make better decisions regarding the management of your extraction equipment without putting a worker too close to a potentially dangerous situation.

For example, say that you needed to check the pressure on a pipeline carrying highly combustible natural gas or refined petroleum product. With remote monitoring, you can simply check a readout to see if the pressure is too low, too high, or just right.

Your remote monitoring system can check for specific operational thresholds that you set up, as well. If a threshold is exceeded, you’ll get an alert so that you can quickly take action to remedy the problem.

Monitoring Fuel Transport for Fleets

Once you’ve got your oil & gas extracted and ready for shipment, it’s important to make sure that the drivers of your delivery vehicles are using safe driving practices on the road.

With a fleet tracking system for oil & gas vehicles, it’s possible to check:

  • Driver Adherence to Route and Schedule Planning. Part of ensuring fuel transport safety is picking the right routes that avoid hard-to-navigate paths. Also, planning out a schedule for avoiding the heaviest traffic can not only improve efficiency, it can help avoid vehicular collisions. With GPS tracking, you can make sure that drivers are sticking to the right routes and schedules for the greatest efficiency and safety.
  • Driving Habits. Another major factor in determining the safety of any big rig carrying a heavy load of combustibles is the driver’s habits for accelerating, braking, and turning. With GPS, you can check a driver’s speed, position, and other driving habits to create a thorough assessment of whether or not they’re driving safely. If not, you can reach out to the driver to correct the issue quickly.

In addition to monitoring driver behavior, GPS tracking systems can help you spot if a truck is grossly off-route, which could be indicative of a driver being lost, or a truck having been stolen. When a truck driver is lost, you can use GPS to quickly guide them back to their assigned route. If a truck is stolen, GPS tracking lets you alert authorities to the truck’s current location so that you can recover your assets quickly, minimizing the risk of a total loss.

Monitoring Fuel Transport for Fleets

Optimize Fleet Management with Thorough Reports

With GPS fleet management software for oil & gas extraction companies, the monitoring data collected from your remote tracking devices is collected and collated into easy-to-review reports.

Using these reports, you can easily make optimizations to your equipment and vehicle use to improve business outcomes.

For example, by tracking the mileage traveled by your fleet vehicles on both the highway and on private roads, you can get better fuel tax data. Alternatively, checking mileage against key engine performance data can help you improve your maintenance scheduling by spotting potential issues early so you can remedy them.

By monitoring equipment usage, you can improve project management and needs projections by checking real-world use data. Additionally, you can make sure that vehicles and equipment are kept on-task by monitoring their location and use statistics.
