Orange Business Services has global expertise, experience and understanding of business outcomes in the industrial sector as many of its customers operate in the sector.

Orange Business Services helps businesses worldwide make a profitable transition to Industry 4.0 by enabling them to improve operations and business transformation through digital and IoT (Internet of Things). The company fosters collaboration across the value chain, with a co-innovation approach to transform and deliver scalable technologies that meet the needs of industry customers.

According Toros Emre Esim, regional digital strategy advisor, Middle East, Africa & Turkey, Orange Business Services, predicting the future has probably never been so challenging for the oil and gas refining and petrochemical manufacturing companies. But, based on the experience of Orange Business Services in the sector, he suggested the following three developments: (i) Platform-enabled innovation eco-systems will become the standard in the oil and gas market. (ii) We will see more of the operations technology know-how being centralised and improved with machine learning. (iii) The number of production personnel on sites will reduce and we will see increasing numbers of fully connected forward operating bases, with the majority of interventions carried out remotely.

Other three future developments suggested by Esim were: (i) We will find more robotics being used on production sites in the oil and gas sector, reducing the number of HSE incidents, thereby bringing the average on a par or below compared to other industries. (ii) Refineries and petrochemical production sites will have their 3D digital representations as default. Some sites will have digital twins for some of the mission-critical assets, improving maintenance and asset optimisation approaches. (iii) Production site drones will be used for an increasing number of purposes, including security and as a way of increasing the reliability of remote monitoring.

Check out the following video for Toros Emre Esim’s views about the digital status of refineries and petrochemical complexes worldwide in 2025.
